Catch-up #3

Posted by @ 9:42 pm on Tuesday 29th December, 2015.

When Santa asked me what I wanted for Christmas this year, I said that I'd like some Turkish Delight and that would be enough.

Well, I got the Turkish Delight, but I wasn't expecting to be sitting in hospital scoffing it while being pumped full of chemo drugs on Christmas Eve.

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) Type FAB M2.

    Just caught up with your posts and was pleased to read catchup 1 and 2. Catchup 3 has floored me and i know how you all must be feeling. So sorry and i hope the dreaded chemo works for you. There’s no good time to get news like this but i hope you have been diagnosed early. Our best wishes.

    Cheers, Alan.

    I was looking forward to some winter walking this season, as I'd missed several winters in a row, but now it's a no-no.

    Hopefully we'll beat this shite so that some semblance of normality can be resumed.

    @BG! -
    Like Al I had been cantering through your updates and came to a dead stop, Stef.
    Life can throw some dreadful curved balls.
    All the very best for the chemo - it will be shit but let's keep our fingers crossed for you and you'll come out the other side a bionic man - the Steve Austin of the bloggers.
