Locovans --News of my Mesothelioma

Well after going to St Barts yesterday and hearing I cant go into the ADAMS trial as my Bi-Op doesnt show the protein yet- Im going into second line Chemo in the next few weeks as my Mr Nasty thinks he can try again.
It isnt all bad news as they are using my Bi-Op for research to help the trial to understand why Im so healthy in myself and have the strength for more Chemo.
Mind you my one kidney has taken a bashing with the last Chemo and is getting into trouble but it has served me well all my life and so I just ask it to keep going through this and I promise to give it lots of fluid to flush it out mainly Pimms as the fruit must be healthy in that.

They took more blood and Urine sample so Im really pleased I can help their research.
Now its back to the Kent & Canterbury for more Chemo which I will start in September.

So a new topic for a new fight and to ask if you would bump up the Charity donations for Mesothelioma UK as I know how much it is needed.
Thanks Mavis xxxx

And wish all the people struggling with cancer good luck as it is a fight we have taken on and we must always fight.

Was the Bart Simpson you went to see in London? I am thinking that the Adams trial is just that and no one even knows if it will work where at least the path you have open does at least have a major affect on Mr. Nasty.

And.... if that stops Mr. N in his tracks (notice its not Mrs. Nasty. Always the male that gets the blame), you may have a chance to try the Adams at a later date.

But you have loads of life left in you so enjoy it and it is so nice to have you here so we can enjoy you. Hugs and kisses.

Thanks for the update Mavis, hope the chemo isn't too debilitating. Viv is currently on her 6th different chemo course (four years on!), thankfully this combination seems to be working well, and doesn't affect her much - so much so that we're off to France in a couple of weeks in between sessions.
We'll keep plugging away as long as we can , and I'm sure you will do the same .
And to everybody who says we'll do this or that, or do a big holiday when we retire, dont wait! You never know what's round the corner

If you read my blog you will know my next door neighbour was found dead while I was in London, he has just got through prostate Cancer and all that treatment got the all clear but the strain was to hard for his heart. Had a Pacemaker fitted Xmas and said a couple of weeks ago that that was playing up so yes do everything you want to do blow the money
So pleased Viv is going on holiday to France Im planning next years holidays now as well
