Hey everyone :hugs I'm back home from Dublin and off again (to Dublin) tomorrow. I'm going to see the specialist for a check up, etc.

Meeting with @Nifty-Chicken yesterday was awesome 💕 Wish I could fly you all over here for a visit!

@chickens really I must be in a lot of people's dreams! Sleeping is still a bit hit and miss with me. But I'm managing. I.e. I finally learnt to nap! ;)

@Blooie Nifty is alright. I'm the one that needs keeping an eye on LOL

Thank you all for the messages and the 💕 :hugs
Best wishes for a good check up tomorrow! :hugs

The check up went well yesterday. That is the most important thing. The downside was waiting more than an hour for my lift to Dublin to pick me up. Seeing the doctor for about 5 minutes. Then I heard from the driver that I have more than an hour to wait, as he was all over Dublin for another patient. So, I hopped into a taxi and asked the driver to take me to the nearest shopping centre. I did a bit of shopping, mostly dinner and snacks, but it helped kill time.

The drive home took about 4 hours, including a tour of the city. I got a little bored and frustrated with the trip and asked the driver to stop for us for a break. Everyone of us jumped out! LOL That was fun. I got home, unwinding and sleeping early. It turned into a 12-hour day all in all.

Right now... I'm going to go back on the chemo treatment and off the steroids. I'm honestly not keen on dropping the steroids, as last time we tried, the results were spectacular... But I'll feel better being off it. I'm going to slow down with them first this time! I'll be going for a scan in about 2 months and that is what is planned for me with Dublin for the moment.

Hope you all are well 💕 :hugs ❤ Love you guys!

Whew! What an adventure! But it sounds like things are moving along. I second the slow withdrawal from steroids. Quitting them "cold turkey" is almost never a good idea. Your body needs time to adjust & adapt, otherwise it feels like being dragged by a truck while dealing with a hangover and the flu at the same time. Been there, done that ... NO FUN!
