Thursday… Good news!

Yesterday saw me getting the train up to Kings College Hospital for my four monthly haematology check up. This was the second time I have been to Kings since the Bone Marrow Transplant unit co-located there. There was a little more organisation, although blood samples (a regular armful!) are taken elsewhere in the hospital first. […]

Friday… The last ECP?

It is about time I wrote a longer blog, and I did promise some photos from my trip to Lausanne. I did wonder if I was going to be able to go at one point – two days before departure I walked into the living room at home, and noticed a damp carpet. Closer inspection […]

Thursday… Winter bites!

I suppose we are no worse off (and probably better) than most of the country, but this was the scene that greeted us this morning. (and more pictures in the Gallery). It seems to have been a long time since the last entry, longer than I normally leave it, but quite a lot going on. […]

Saturday… Lots of catching up!

Phew, where to start? It has been a couple of weeks since I last “blogged” so there is quite a bit of catching up to do! The biggest adventure was a 12 day trip out to France with friend Mark, to his house for a working party. We drove over on Monday the fourth via […]

Thursday… post ECP

A busy bank holiday weekend! I was at a BBQ organised by someone from the Dive Club on Sunday (thank you Dave) an excellent afternoon, finished with a round of croquet). On Monday I went up to Corsham to start clearing out my flat. I have moved most of the things, but I’ll be going […]

Thursday… Chilly June!

Pity about the weather – too good to last! ECP went well, although the early Sunday morning start meant that I had to travel up on Saturday evening for two nights in Gassiot Hpouse at St Thomas’s. Not too bad although the street noise on a Saturday is pretty bad, and of couirse I lost […]

Monday… it’s damp!

It is a stereotypical damp Monday morning here in Corsham, which is a bit of a let down after the lovely weather of last week. I went home on Thursday night, ready for my trip up to London for the ECP on Friday and Saturday. The ECP was uneventful, although I left it a little […]

Tuesday… plans change

I should have been getting ready to catch the train up to London for my two days of ECP. However I had a ‘phone call from the day centre yesterday afternoon to say that one of the machines had developed a fault, and wouldn’t be repaired in time for me to get my treatement. The […]

Friday… Oops!

I was sitting happily at my desk yesterday afternoon, when the ‘phone rang… “Hello, this is St Thomas’s Dermatology Day Centre – did you know you had an appointment for ECP this afternoon?”. It appears that my dates of 29th and 30th were at variance with their booking system! (I take the blame). After some […]

Thursday… more ECP

I’m writing this from my little room in Gassiot House, the hostel for patients staying for consecutive days of treatment – and it is a bit warmer than I have known it in the past! So this afternoon was the first of the two sessions of the ECP – and as usual, it passed uneventfully. […]
