A Health Update.

I haven't updated for a while because until now I have had no news to tell.
I went for another CT scan a week ago on Friday, Then a full blood panel last Monday.
Yesterday (Monday) I went back for my results.

All of the blood results were good, but the best was the result from the CT scan. last time my oncologist had said there was very slight shrinkage of 2 tumours and the others had remained the same.
This time he said there was noticeable shrinkage in all of the tumours.
As you can imagine, this is a huge relief for Ivor and myself. It will make our Christmas so much better.

Many of you keep asking how I am and tell me I am in your thoughts. Both Ivor and I really appreciate it and thank you for your thoughts.

I have another CT scan in 3 months time and hopefully that will be as good or better.

I can't do a post without a photo so I dug out an old funny one. My head is in there somewhere beneath Eric!
