What a week it's been! (Now I sound like #AlanCarr except I'm not as funny!)
I was on #Elaine with my lovely friend and the panel of fab ladies on TV3 on Tuesday.
Then on Wednesday my oncologist agreed to allow me have the chemotherapy pump removed for a couple of days so I could fly to London. There, I had the massive honour of being on #Lorraine on #ITV
I cannot tell you how excited I was.
It was my first big slot on UK TV and a massive opportunity for me. As it turned out Lorraine wasn't there as she's on holiday, but #ChristineLampard was sitting in.
It was so interesting to see ITV and how they do things. All the walls are covered with photos of their stars from #PhilipSchofield and #HollyWilloughby to #AntandDec
I had a quick chat with the producer and #DrHilaryJones as he was coming on the show with me. Then it was air time!
I loved every minute and it seemed to go by in a flash. I hope UK viewers enjoyed it.
Lots of people messaged me via my website (www.emmahannigan.com) afterwards to say it helped them. So I'm delighted they know that it's possible to live with and through cancer.
AND 'All To Live For' shot up on Amazon to number 1! Very exciting and thank you to everyone who bought it!
Unfortunately all the excitement meant I've ended up in hospital with exhaustion and a chest infection and feeling pretty rough (and that's putting it mildly). My vitals weren't good and I was officially in bad shape. There's a list that runs from 1 - 10. 1 being mild 10 being an ICU job. I was at 10.
But you might've guessed that I don't believe in doing things by half measures. So I went all out with a temperature of 40.6/105, delirious, unable to walk, sweating buckets, hallucinating & talking gibberish (nothing new there really).
My poor hubby had to think fast and luckily he did and got me to hospital immediately or things might have been very different.
As usual the amazing team I have minding me are nursing me back to health. It's my body's way of telling me loudly that I am not ready to tear about. That I need to stay put and let this chemotherapy do it's job. That I need to be patient for a while longer.
So my message to my body: I hear you - loud & clear! Please don't frighten me like this again.
I'm going to behave. I'll sit and write and do small walks with Herbie and that's it.
To the nurses who are minding me, feel free to hit me over the head with a chair. I'll take it.
On the up side, I got breakfast in bed this morning and I'll be having it again tomorrow!!
Have a great weekend one and all
Love and light
