Well...10 weeks since my last dose of chemo. Having a short break from herceptin due to heart issues (down to 44%) but that has recovered so will be restarting soon.  
So today is my 1st day back to work. 4 hours a day 5 days per week..review in 4 weeks. Of course I have an oncology appointment today at the same hospital I work so it will be a longer than planned day. And tomorrow there is the physio appt. But hey...life is starting to move on. My energy levels are so much better. I am really glad I opted to wait 4 additional weeks before returning..it was the best decision for me. I still can't  do all that I used to...but at least now I have the energy to at least try.

Have a great day all. Kath x

Every day may not be good
But there is something good in every day
(We just have to find it ❤)

    Thats great a positive step forward! Just go very easy back into it if you can, as I found I was ok for a few months then hit a wall and went backwards. Bit by bit will lead to success. :) Melinda

    Hi All. Just dropping in to say all going well. Getting tired as the week goes on but have remained busy even after work which is good. Heart has recovered to 56% so will be back on the Herceptin soon.
