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. […]

Saturday… The sun shines!

I’m afraid I haven’t been in the right frame of mind for blogging in the last month or so. The background activities to the divorce have kept me busy too – I am amazed by the mountain of paperwork that it generates. The bad weather doesn’t do much to lift the spirits either. BUT – […]

Saturday… Yes, I am still here!

But not been in blogging mode I fear – partly because there has been a lot going on. I returned from my break in Lausanne for a few days to get myself prepared to start work back at Corsham, where I was working last year. I had a trip up to London to see the […]

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 […]

Thursday… Polling day!

I started this entry on Tuesday with a tag line of “So that was the Bank Holiday weekend!”, but I didn’t quite get round to finishing it, and I was away in London yesterday. It was a good Bank holiday though. On Saturday we nipped up the road to Odiham for a friend’s Birthday Party […]

Friday… wet and gloomy!

The weather that is, not me! I have just realised (looking at the large number of comments) that it is nearly ten days since I last posted – fresh from the check up! I have continued to be busy at work, and weekends have been taken up with those jobs that tend to accumulate while […]


Well, the last posting may have been overdue, but I was certainly under-due for my ECP appointment. It all got a little strange when I turned up at the accommodation yesterday, and found that no room had been booked. But it was when I arrived on the ward to be greeted with “Nice to see […]

Tuesday… check up and ECP day 1

As the title says, today was a day of checks and ECP, but I did say that I would write about the Bank Holiday weekend. Saturday was a lovely sunny day, so I got a few outside jobs done, starting with a climb up onto the roof to refix the TV aerial to the chimney. […]

Wednesday… back from the fang farrier

Well strictly speaking, the oral surgery department. The good news is that saliva production is better than last year, so there has been some recovery of the salivary glands that were affected by the radiotherapy (over three years ago!) – whether or not there will be any further recovery is hard to say, but the […]

Wednesday… post ECP

And nothing untoward to report – the ECP on Monday and Tuesday went smoothly and that was followed by a haemotology check up. Again uneventful, although I did give up another 5 tubes of blood – on top of the little bit that gets lost after each ECP treatment session! After the trip over to […]
