For once it's me, Chris, posting
It's been a while, for which I apologise. Once again my head wedged where the sun does not always shine..
Then it occurred to me why - my (our) decision was not made by me.... Bottom line is the decision was already made - cancer is spreading anyways. Option one - keep trying to fight it = it still spreads and I'm not living a 'comfortable' life. Indeed, the week before Easter gave us a very graphic indication of just how uncomfortable life could be on the 2nd run of chemo - I ended up in hospital with an infection they advised was caused by the chemo which had all but written off my immune system, to a much worse level than it normally might. All of a sudden I had 'weeks to live' and they were arranging for hospital beds etc to,be sent home Option two - accept it is spreading, stop treatment, live a more comfortable life. You know, dare to leave the vicinity of the bathroom etc....
Anyways, moving on..
Thanks, again, to you all.
The latest figure for Gary's run is now around £1k -.great on any day, doubly so when the decision to run sponsored only popped up a few days before the event! As Sharon already mentioned, there is the awareness side of things to very much consider - an age old cliche but, if just one person gets a diagnosis that saves their life....
In other news, in improving quality of life I now have a mobility scooter. Pride has been the silly barrier that has prevented me from get in one for a while but I have and it's been the best money spent in,a while. Bonus is it is metallic red so it is, of course, faster than anything else on the pavement! Flip,side is, this tells you that my leg function is not that good. Due to the drugs I am on,, and I less,use, leg and other large muscle groups are atrophying
