A brief update Tue 20-Mar-2018
I am some three weeks behind with these blogs. I have plenty of notes but have been struggling to put them together. It started with the picture above which is me leaving the Peter Lanyon exhibition that we went to in London earlier this month. What you may not be able to tell from this pic, is that I am in tears and Teresa is comforting me. In itself that is a long story which will hopefully come out in the real blog when I get it finished.
This is just to say, yes I am still alive, I have been going through a VERY down period and have been struggling to work or do anything. All connected with my current cancer drug not working, my consultant not feeling the need to include me in treatment plans and in general feeling that my battle with this cancer may be short rather than long.
On Saturday (after being given permission at the fracture clinic), I drove for the first time in 4 months (Teresa riding shotgun), and collected some food from Sainsbury’s. Subsequently I did some cooking and in general my mood has (somewhat) turned the corner. However, I was at the doctor’s three times last week, the next scan is in a week and the next clinic is in two, so that cloud is never far away.
This is harder than I can explain in words and I find writing an immense challenge, but I will hopefully find some way of expressing the last few weeks and release a blog for it.
