It only remains to say a HUGE thank you to the readers of this and especially the friends I imposed on for their reliable lifts - many thanks indeed. AND just as importantly all the other people who offered their services and were on stand-by in case the scheduled driver had to pull out. It saved a lot of worry and hassle for me and Jane and we are both very grateful.
It also remains to say thanks to those following this blog - I feel I may take a few days off from writing this and have a break from the computer! I will have an appointment with the Consultant Oncologist at Cheltenham in about 3 weeks time, so there maybe something to say following that visit.
We will, of course, update this with any news but hopefully any immediate side effects are not so bad as chemotherapy - that's what I've been told, anyway! - only the fatigue, which is affecting me.
