Another rainy Saturday

Yesterday we were in Bristol for Clare's first Brachytherapy session (she has one more final treatment the end of next week). The treatment itself is painless but Clare seems to have an associated allergic reaction to something: it was the familiar histamine reaction but this time not a whole body rash but extreme sensitivity of the hands and ankles. Today the effects are beginning to recede.

Still, she's very tired and spends most of the day sleeping - 'like a dormouse,' she says, and given the weather she could be forgiven.
