Mesothelioma My Diary —we have a tree in the Jubilee Woods in honour of Mesothelioma Victims.


I had to go to K&C Hospital for my bloods to be taken today and I mentioned I have puffy ankles.

The Sister said to ask my GP for Diuretics.

It was so easy to take the bloods from my PICC Line so I know now why they put them in, so much easier than trying to find veins with a needle.

We wasnt at the hospital very long so we went to a retail park to buy me an outfit for the trip on the Orient express on Sunday.

This done and I was happy with what I bough we went to my GP surgery, but the receptionist said to go home and she would get the Doctor to phone me at home as all the appointments were taken.

At home we had lunch after doing the house work and washing and I sat down  and just as I was nodding of, the phone went.

I explained to the GP that I was on Chemo and my ankles were swelling.

She checked back on my screen and said that my kidney function test results were there and were 6 and today my bloods showed my kidney function was 5.

She was worried that my kidney was what they call a dry kidney. (I have been told this before )

So the outcome is she would rather I didnt have Diuretics as I only had one kidney and they can make things worse.

I agreed and said I would see how they were after Chemo.

I will drink 8 glasses of water a day and see if I can help my poor kidney.

Im not happy as we so need our kidney to function well but Chemo can hit them hard.

In the post I recieved my Certificate for the tree I have bought in Leicester to honour the Mesowarriors  in the Jubilee Woods.

I couldnt have a lot of room to write many words so I just put For all Mesothelioma Victims.

But the Oak Tree that I chose will grow big and strong and live for 100,s of years in honour of such brave Mesowarriors.
