Cancer Scan news

A letter from the oncologist

I am delighted to report your recent scan showed nothing of concern

This is very reassuring

And reassuring it is, because the depth of the original tumour, according to whoevers law, gave him 6 - 12 months

Its now 5 years

Not 5 years since hes been clear of recurring tumours , hes had 7 removed by an excellent surgeon , whose managed not to destroy major nerves

And although his arm is huge, with lymphodemia, as he has no lymph nodes in that arm it works , and he refuses to let it curb what he does

But we hold our breath every scan, because the internal melonoma tumours are the ones we cant detect by careful checks

So breathe in and out and continue to hope for another six months

Wonderful news Sandra, I'm glad for both of you. Time to get the van out and leave everyone behind.

Get away and enjoy yourselves.

I think not for long this spring Drew

We are redecorating, the new fire place , wood burner and lounge we are really pleased with

Alberts done it

And the garden needs attention

The rest we will employ a decorator

Our granddaughter has sent us a voucher to see an English wine producer plus meal so we will book it

And spend a night or two in the van

I think shorter trips in England this spring

I need to return to the Langdales and Wasdale , and although I can no longer walk those mountains I can look at them

And I love Wales and Scotland

And really its time we explored our beautiful country of Gt Britain

Depends where in Scotland

Or for that matter in Wales JAn

The Lake District , not that far

But I think we need to be near

I want the house decorated

And the gardens sorted

I love my flowers

In fact Jan as we get older, less mobile Im wondering if we need the van

Without the hound from hell

Well we could stay in a hotel

With him?

Well a 60 Thousand pound van is needed

So he can repel everyone , feel good hes protecting

Once he meets well hes over the moon

Its just that moment between protecting and being over the moon thats the problem

All three of us are really please to hear that news Sandra Lesley said "Wow!" when I told her and Bob said "Woof woof" which loosely translates as "Please come and see us soon" (I think).

I am really pleased to hear that news - it is great to have the dark cloud lifted each time and long may that sunshine continue.......

Best wishes to all three of you....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Sandra, so pleased to hear your excellent news. Im sure you and your family have been under a lot of duress and now at least you can plan for the future. Whatever you decide to do, with or without the van, enjoy and appreciate.

Nick.

A small deed done is better than a great deed planned.
