    Firstly, I would like to point out that my rant about the Homerton hospital does not apply to Royal Marsden; to be an in-patient in the Royal Marsden is, well has been mostly a positive experience.  The staff there are wonderful!  Even the food is better.  Anyway, I just wanted to clarify that.

    My fever still continues.  I seem to get it in the mornings and evenings.  Still no other symptoms.

    My chemo has been re-scheduled to next Monday, and I have an appointment to have a CT-scan this Thursday.  Also, I am still hoping to be able to go to see the stem cell experts at the Sutton branch of Royal Marsden this Wednesday.

    I managed to go for a lunch at our favourite pub, the Cat & Mutton yesterday.  Suzie’s dad and mum wanted to treat us (Suzie, Steph and I) for a lunch on Valentine’s Day.  It was such a lovely lunch, great company and delicious food.  It really cheered me up, especially after the Homerton experience!

    I took my bike to a bike shop, Two Wheels Good in Stoke Newington last Thursday.  My dynamo lights needed fixing.  As you know, on Thursday I ended up in hospital, and since then I have not been well enough to pick it up.  I called them on Saturday to say I was in the hospital, and they were quite understanding but said I needed to pick it up as soon as possible.  I called them again today to say I was still unwell.  This time, they were not so sympathetic.  They said they will start charging me extra soon for storing my bike.  How mean!  I want to pick up my bike as much as they want to get rid of it, but I cannot because I am ill.  Not very nice people….
