Finish line in sight

The good news is my bloods are up, liver functioning normally and chest x-ray fine – so fit for chemo on Thursday.

The bad news is I will miss Emma’s wedding on Saturday. Sorry Cruton. I will be there in spirit (a gin and vermouth please) and I will pray for good weather.

In between hospital visits we’ve been enjoying the unexpected warm spell. We’ve now brought the boat the rest of the way back. Andrew came with us to crew, which was very welcome as I am mostly a figurehead first mate at the moment. Don’t have the strength to do locks and ropes although every now and then John lets me steer!

This week’s treatment is the penultimate one, the end of this protracted journey now coming into view. Thursday marks exactly six months since Diagnosis Day. Thanks for sticking with me through it!

    you do not seem to have sufficient facial hair at present to captain a boat,let alone that you are not looking in the direction of travel. suggest you stick to figurehead role for now!

    Actually exemption from lock duty is quite convenient (but don't tell John!) Means I can sit back and enjoy the ride. Thank you for your messages of support. XXX
