Honey go put the kettle on – this one’s going to take a while.
Today felt like a day at the Academy Awards.
The results were in. And waiting for results is a bit like waiting to find out whether you’ve won an Oscar or not.
I even decided to get proper dressed for the big event. Gigantic pants and baggy sweats really weren’t going to cut it today. It felt good slathering myself in Tom Ford and slipping into a little silk cami.
The drive west was smooth. M has had to revise his driving style from deranged bedlamite to plain-sailing slow-lane chauffer in order to cater to my need for seamless gear changing due to wobbly brain issue.
Arriving at my doctor’s office we were escorted into a private room to await the entrance of the chief.
Time for a quick selfie in big examination chair to share on WhatsApp group with my girl gang back home.
Soon my two new favourite people in the whole wide world entered and we got down to business.
Results were dispensed and I was given the all-inclusive synopsis of the invader of my synapses AKA Bambi.
It had been concluded that she was a rarity who had mutated from a few pretty pink star shaped cells.
I guess at the end of the day – if you’re going to get a brain tumour – what more could a girl ask for than a limited edition, sparkly one.
Then we got back to the important matters of English literature.. My brain surgeon is a literary treasure trove and the fact that he quoted Tolkien and my blog in the same sentence.. Made me feel extra special.
The ride home was fairly benign until suddenly an enormous real life Bambi ran into the road. Oh dear!! M slammed the brakes. How paradoxical.. I’d never want to annihilate a pukka Bambi.
So next up is a spicy little cocktail of radio and chemo. I have no idea what this entails. Is it comparable to mixing acid and ecstasy – I can draw on a past experience for that one.
Finished off the day with my love, my friend, the biggest plate of sushi and the teeniest glass of fizz.
I felt so giddy with optimism that when the UPS man arrived with a package I took it from him and said ‘Thanks, love you. Bye.’
