[Remember, if you're new to this blog or just want clinical-ish details, then you need to read the blogs of 2nd July, 22nd July and 23rd July first and that of the 27th Sept].
And a long time has gone by since the last blog as I 1) wonder what I've done that is interesting and 2) feeling guilty that a fair number of people log on to this (I only know numbers of people, not who!) and there is no update.
So, since the last few blogs, life has been getting a bit more normal for both of us. Jane has restarted work but now 3 days per week, and I have either been busy doing housework while Jane is out(?), or I've been doing other things! I have got back to helping a volunteer working party on the Malverns - recently on a site where some rare spreading bellflower is getting established - I hadn't heard of it either! I have also been catching up on the voluntary office work I do the Lyttelton Well - and I have - of today - brought my analysis up to date. Good to get out and about and doing more normal things! (And after over 7 months of being either in hospital or looked after, it was both nice but also strange to be on my own again!!)
I have also met up with colleagues at Regent's College where I volunteer occasionally, but the afternoon included tea and cake.
On a more relevant note, I have been to the Gloucestershire Hammer Out Brain Tumour Support Group meeting which was very interesting and informative as to the services that the Hammer Out Charity provides.
And it was good to catch up with other friends and always time to chat - tea and biscuits permitting!
I am due for an MRI scan in the next few weeks and have an appointment to see the Consultant Oncologist in Cheltenham in December, and the Haematologist Consultant in Worcester in early January, so may leave updating this blog until then to give me plenty of time to go Christmas shopping - maybe!
So, unless there is any special news, the blogs may well reduce even further in frequency.....
