Breast feeding cafes

I was talking to a dear friend tonight who mentioned a breast feeding cafe group in London. I hadn’t heard of such cafes but those kinds of things set my mind racing. I cant stop myself thinking of names for such cafes. If they don’t exist already, I am thinking potential owners should consider ‘Cafe Express’, ‘The Maternity Brasserie’, or perhaps ‘My Full Cuppas’. For a slogan, ‘Serving the breast coffee in town’, or ‘Coffee that doesn’t colostrum the earth’, or maybe ‘Making great coffee, making great friends, making great mammaries’.
The options are endless.
Apologies for the deviation from cancer. The dexi’s are keeping me awake- need to direct my creative energies somewhere.

Not 15 seconds ago and ad came on TV.

“In Australia, 9000 people will be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Sadly, half will die.”

And I thought I kinda liked stats.

Day One of Chemotherapy

Posted on January 16th, 2008 by Cam.

We headed to the hospital to pick up the chemotherapy drugs we ordered yesterday. My script for today reads as follows:

Cyclophosphamide 200mg
Idarubacin 20mg
Dexamethasone 40mg
Allopurinol 300mg
Kytril 2mg
Maxalon (as required)

The first two drugs listed are the cyto-toxic drugs and I only take that for the first few days of each cycle. The Dexamethasone is a steroid, and the others are to counter-act nausea or gout. A cycle goes for 21 days and I will have 4 of these cycles over the next 3 months.

I took the day off as I wasn’t sure how I would feel, but I haven’t really felt nauseous yet. So I have felt at a loose end all day. I need to get a hobby.
