    Well its now June 2nd and Tenerife seems like an age away already!!!! I miss the Bacardi Mohitos!! The holiday was just what we needed and chemo started again last Thursday and so far so good. No chest pains, no problems and feeling fab at the moment. I cant live without omeprazole though so stomach acid has a big effect on my well being. I am concentrating on my fundraising for Race for Life, so far its £1600 for cancer research and £700 for my local hospital and still two weeks to go. Its great...

    After yesterday’s long epistle, I thought I would leave the actual clinic story until today. Give you all a bit of breathing (and in Carolannt’s case, peeing) space, as it were.

    I want to say thank you to everybody who read my blog and took the trouble to comment. It helps - it definitely does. My husband, my mum and I have been round their flat today, as they are moving on Saturday to a new flat, and we are helping them clean,etc. Doing something practical for him really helps - so I stopped at Tesco's on the way and bought them good, healthy food so he can build himself up. He's like a beanpole. You may think 'why isn't his wife doing that?' Well, it's...
