Hi Ruth

Happy birthday to you  . Have a great day

You have the right idea about enjoying life, that's what we have to do. Someone up there likes you, you're going to be able to relax, to a certain extent, over Christmas, no treatment. 

I feel sorry for those that are sleeping rough over Christmas although part of me is wondering if they are professional beggars. Instead of giving them money in case it's spent on drink or drugs, I nip in somewhere and buy them a hot sausage roll or a burger or similar. I've never yet been turned down because the recipient is vegetarian or vegan! It's not as easy to pass them whilst suddenly becoming interested on the opposite pavement. I'm in a chair, slowly coming towards them at their height. I usually get a cheerful hello because they have sympathy. 

Enjoy the rest of your day, Ruth. Btw, what's a Marla?

Well, it's my turn to get results. I'm at the cancer unit now, so far I've been weighed and the nurse has said that my white and red cells are low. Just waiting to see the doctor to find out if I've to stay with the weekly injection or change tack. Shouldn't be too long before I see him or her. 

Really busy here today especially in the car park. Nurses have been on strike for 3 days this week for the first time ever in Northern Ireland. 

I'm going to see a former work colleague in ICU after this, he's been in 4 or 5 weeks after collapsing somewhere. He passed his official retirement date in hospital, if he hadn't taken ill he would have been retired now. He hasn't had any other visitors apart from the family since he came in. The nurse has agreed to me going in if the family say it's fine, he'll get a big surprise when he sees me. We did the same job for nearly 40 years, just the last 12 with the same company although we knew of each other. Great respect both ways.

Have to see the doctor soon. I've been here over an hour, almost an hour and a half.

I’m sending you all best wishes
It will be my turn on Monday to get scan results  I had a call today asking me to come in ahead of the scheduled immunotherapy date on 18th. I’m trying not to read anything into it
