I had cancer, then I didn't, now I have it again - my thoughts are my personal words that flow when I log in. They assist me in my first instance in getting my thoughts flowing and down on virtual paper - Secondly to get friends and family in the loop, not so they don't have to ask me any awkward questions just so they are informed enough to know what to say to me and pray for the right things - As a public blog, anyone can read it - hoping it will assist others through their own challenges.

Day 376 - Tuesday 21.12.10
Many thanks for the support over the past few weeks - I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself which is just not on!
It has felt like I have been at the wrong end of a very long dark tunnel and now I feel I am nearly out the other side.
I am still a bit fed-up with the quarantine situation as I am purposely staying away from gatherings as dont want to get a germ or infection...I have had so much grief in the past year with one thing or another so taking no chances.
I have managed to go out on my bike once last Wednesday - the acceleration is incredible, apparently the bike does 135+ mph and accelerates at 0-60 in under 3 secs...not ready for that yet!
So all good and glad to hear many of my friends doing so well and those that are struggling, please believe me when I say there are silver linings in everything.
If you haven't yet seen my quotes, please have a look at the links below...not a boast to say look at me just a sense of pride that I can make a difference even with the worst prognosis.
Also I asked my Onco a couple of questions and the answer was YES to both...
1. Do I need a flu Jab - YES
2. Can I have a couple of glasses of Red Wine over Christmas - YES
So you had all better watch out as I haven't had a drink in months...seriously though I wont probably have more than a glass but it is just nice to know I can!
One final positive note...with all that has gone on in just the past couple of months I am feeling better and stronger than I did this time last year...whilst I still have cancer in my body it is not the great big life sucking lump I had in my bowel that stopped me walking, sleeping and sitting down...every cloud ay!
