Things have moved on a bit here and Mr Nasty is progressing once more. Both my oncologist and the 'big man' at Barts think the time is right to give it another zap. So I am starting a 3rd regime of chemo a.s.a.p. I have already started on the premeds and once the blood tests have been done I will get a starting date. There is a chance the chemo will slow down the cancer growth for another short while so I have to take that chance – the alternative doesn’t really appeal!
The real problem is that statistically I am on the ‘tail’ end of the survival graph and there is no set treatment/procedure for us peeps that survive longer than most. I am grateful to Linda for reminding me of the essay ‘The Median isn’t the Message by Stephen Jay Gould. I have read this before but it helped me to read it again. Just hoping this tail is very, very l o n g.
Meanwhile like most if the country we have been contending with weather. I love the snow but not the cold penetrating winds that have accompanied it. Always looking for photo opportunities Alan ventured out into the garden:
I also want to show the ‘Tunbridge Wells Snowman'. I think maybe Ethan had a bit of help with this!
