Big hugs to you Kate, ♥

I'm thinking of you and am so pleased your treatment's under way. It's great hubby has come to support you because it is frightening just having to go to hospital IMO. Oops... that's 'in my opinion' for those new to the lazy acronym chat. :silly:

I'll start an acronym chat dictionary in Aunty Di's thread... :woohoo:

Anyway Kate, I've just been for my appointment today about ketamine and the verdict is he won't do it for me. :(
Apparently it would be a waste of time because I'd get some benefit during the infusion but once it stopped so would the relief.
I won't take up this thread with my new treatment plan. :) All's good.

Stay comfy and relaxed Kate and let us know how you're going... we're all here for you.
:) Di xo

Thank you for well wishes! Am having trouble reading and concentrating do this will be brief. 2/3 of the way to max dose now. Feeling really dizzy - drunk like but without the jollyness that goes with it! Doc said if I'm to feel pain relief it probably won't be until at least Saturday. Anyway we'll see.... Zoning out...

Hi Kate,

Good to hear that you are handling things ok. Hopefully you are through the worst of it and things will start to look up from now on!

Thank you for updating us.

How's our Kate going today? :)

Gee the doc's making you wait for the gold isn't he? Saturday isn't too far away I guess Kate and I hope you're at least getting a bit of benefit from it so far?

A little something from all of us to help brighten up your day. ♥
