Adrian had another scan in May, we went for the results this week. It was amazing! Nothing short of a miracle. There are no tumours present! His last chemo was back in January and we were prepared to go back on it, instead we were given this wonderful news, so we'll be making the most of this wonderful time for however long it lasts xx

We were doing so well.
2018 was a marvellous year for which i'll be forever grateful. All Adrian's scans were clear, so I finished work last September. We had a lovely holiday in Jersey and enjoyed Christmas together.
Adrian had his routine scan early February and we were due to get the results 4th March. However, in the weeks leading up to that appointment Adrian started having bad headaches, then his vision became a problem finally he had difficulty walking and speaking. He was admitted to a&e and a brain scan confirmed a tumour. They also looked at his body scan, and once again that was clear. They operated 29th March, he recovered really well, so they discharged him 31st March on the condition that he stayed home and relaxed.
Last week we saw his oncologist, who has ordered another Ct scan of his head and body. Today we've been to see the doctor who deals with brain radiotherapy. He was lovely, so easy to talk to, but I think a lot depends on the rresults of the Ct scans he's about to have. I am very concerned as he gets giddy, and has some pains around his ribs occasionally.
His oncologist said it's unusual to have mets to the brain, I said it knew where to hide.
We're back on that dreaded rollercoaster again 😡
