I’ve not posted because I’ve been inside again (no not Strangeways – I mean hospital).

I got a call from the Christie doctor who saw me. She had seen the preliminary scan report, and there was something odd about the kidneys, so she wants me to come in to her clinic on Monday.  She seemed to be thinking infection or chemo damage rather then cancer.  She added that if my abdominal pain got any worse, then I should ring their hotline.

Sorry for the lack of posts, we had a broadband outage.  Looks like we may have a faulty router.

It’s the last 13 days now, and I’m glad.  I am weary.

I saw the Christie consultand for the last time yesterday.  He says I have done everything right, and improved the odds as best I can, but the hard truth is that this cancer frequently re-occurs.

I have to wait and see if I survive or not.  I went home and sulked in bed for a few hours, I’m feeling better now, but still somewhat broody.

Just one diversion, someone had ordered a scan for me on 7 Dec. Turns out the consultant knew nowt about it.  To confuse the issue I thought it was at the MRI, but it is at the Christie.  Anyway I rang up the Christie and informed his secretary, so no doubt they will sort it out and ring me back.

And so to bed.
