It’s amazing to think it’s nearly two years since my diagnosis. What a journey! Until that point I had never given a thought to blood cancer, or bone marrow transplants. Why would I?? The closest I got was watching a TV drama called ‘Undeniable’, and thinking how amazing… a bone marrow transplant changes your blood group to the same type as the donor’s. Little did I know!!
The fine tuning is now taking place. I still have to go for regular check ups, and I still have to be careful about some things I took for granted before all this. But when I remember Dr Sarah Janes telling me, “You need a bone marrow transplant, and without it you will probably ony have three years left”. Wow – that stopped me in my tracks.
I know this will come as a surprise to many who know me, but this little post is really just to say: I have sort of had enough of talking about myself now. I am back to work, I feel a lot better, and I sort of want to move on and put my experience behind me!
That said – I love the fact that this blog has helped, and is still helping, people going through the same journey. And this is what I want to do now – try, where I can to help make a little difference to other sufferers and their fight. Please feel free to send me a message, or ask any relevant questions. But for now I am going to be quiet, unless – of course – there is anything specific to say.
Zig and I are also hoping to get something going that helps support bone marrow transplant patients a little more, so keep an eye open for that. If we get it off the ground you can be sure I will be back blabbing about that!!
So for now – once again – thanks for visiting, thanks for all the kind words and support. See you soon.
Lots of love… Lucy xxxx
