To those of you who are valued yet not part of our day to day world, this blog may come as a shock because it appears cancer is a shared interest for m’darlink and me.
Ten years to the day since we admitted M to Lismore Base Hospital for removal of Tommy tumour, we again drove out to Lismore to meet with his surgeon – this time it was for me. A colonoscopy report revealed I too have a squatter.
Of course, with the advancement of time, my squatter is superior and naturally more sophisticated – it is bigger and faster growing. Great. I finally get to beat M at something, thanks universe.
So this is the intro post to a blog we’ve set up to document the journey and keep all of you informed of progress. I hope to continue to work – albeit in a more spasmodic fashion – and therefore need to work out how to deal with the added workload of responding to enquiries about my health and progress. I’m hoping this blog will inform, be cathartic for both M and I and alleviate the need for a publicity manager.
We have huge support and love being thrown at us by our local buddies (and of course love from our remote buddies who happened to be in touch during this time), so please be assured, we are being looked after.
Texts and Comments on this blog are the best form of communicating with us, as chemo and radiation treatment, combined with lots of rest whilst attempting to work, will prevent us from being so available for calls.
