I know, I know you’re thinking old dumbo has it wrong again. I should have typed Chemical Brothers… you know, the band? Well, no, I didn’t get it wrong, and I do mean Chemo Sisters. Sisters as in nurses, Chemo as in Chemotherapy for cancer.
You see, dear reader, yesterday was day four of my chemotherapy and I now have two days left on Tuesday next and the following Tuesday after that. The Chemo Sisters sure do like their Tuesdays.
I’m writing this at 23:17 because I can’t sleep, a side effect from yesterday’s jab. Also, I’m sweating profusely because it’s hot and it’s also another side effect from the jab. And I’m eating a bowl of cereal at the same time because I’m hungry, which is, another side effect. I can put up with these side effects. The fatigue is okay too, but I do tend to sleep a fair bit in the day, fifteen minutes here, an hour there. Which in the end explains the lack of sleep at night? Not to worry, I take it where I can.
As for the actual jab, it’s dead simple and in the preamble tests to discovering this cancer I had to inject myself at least a dozen times, for colonoscopy and endoscopy tests. So, no fear or worries there.
But I will be glad to get an out of order sign on my stomach after the next fortnight. I need a break from all this, and August may just be an enjoyable time to rest, take a break, up the coast, in a hotel and be pampered. Just what the doctor ordered.

You may have noticed, dear reader, that I’m an indie author. That means I make my living by writing books and selling them to readers who really appreciate an enjoyable book. Either way, here is the shameless plug… well, three shameless plugs. Up to now, all my books have been on Kindle since I started writing. Now, I have published on Nook, Kobo and Apple as well, and they are on a few other digital outlets too.

A Pat on His Back
When I moved from England to Cyprus, I had a dream of what life would be like. To live in the sun & take life one small step at a time. Kick back, sit back, lie back, be an ex-pat on my back & relax. But Cyprus had other ideas. “Welcome to Cyprus, please ensure your passport & wallet are open.” Kindle: http://mybook.to/PatonhisBack Nook/Apple/Kobo: https://books2read.com/u/4NjNko
