Thanks for your kind comments and the up ness of the chin remains !

I will post more news as I have it. Sat in the chemo suite as we type awaiting blood results which methinks are going to be fair to crap meaning a potential delay in cycle 7 let's see

More soon

David

They always did my bloods the day before, but somehow the results were never there on time. We certainly learn how to wait!

Good luck

So true, waiting is the one thing we get accustomed to!, I was wrong however the bloods have bounced upwards in the right direction for whatever reason and I am enjoying the delights of an oxaliplatin infusion from the folforinox suite as we speak,

It is weird but I look forward to my chemo as I always feel we are moving forward.

Speak soon

David

Yea! Not for having the oxaliplatin and having your fingertips not being your own for the next 5 or 6 days, but for the fact your body is obviously tougher than you think!

Perhaps the old electrification has knocked out enough to give your body a little rest from feeding or trying to fight the nasty wee (insert preferred name here) :-)

Onwards and upwards m'dear and hope old day 5 isn't too bad.

Really glad to hear they could go ahead David. Just as Paul starts to feel a bit better, chemo is due and wham down he goes, and yes we look forward to it too! It's just so nice to be able to tick another one off. Although I was very disappointed when I realised I had miscounted and thought he had only 3 left when in fact it is 4. Perhaps at some point I will need some treatment to get my brain working again, as I am sure I used to find sums such as 12 minus 8 quite easy!
Take care all,
Nikki

Hi David and Sam, just wondered how you were getting on. I see you logged onto the forum on 7th January, but did not post. I do hope all is going well.

Me 3 :-). Hoping it's all so good you're giving the cancery stuff a rest just now. Either way here if/when needed and sending good vibes.
