Still waiting...

It can be quite a bore just sitting at home and waiting for the Radiotherapy doctors to call and sat that they are ready to go! They need to calculate the right doses and I guess that just translates to me doing better after and during radiation. I guess tomorrow may be the day (fingers crossed).
I had a bit of work to finish up in town today and got that out of the way. Our tiny room in hospital has been really neglected since we stay with my parents over the past few months. This picture of Anne and me was taken a while ago, but gives you an idea of our hospital accommodation - single room. The fridge stabilizer had given up and that meant that the power supply to the refrigerator had gone. There was melted moldy ice cream in the freezer and some old fungus infested food, the stabilizer needed to be given in for repair and the fridge cleaned out. Anne had handled the cleaning and I thankfully looked after fixing the stabilizer.
We both get back to work on the 1st of March. I will be able to continue radiation (15 min) a day and work, and Anne needs to start her Obstetrics course. Baby Koby is expected mid April and will put us in quite a toss then!I have put in a picture of my parents grabbing a bite to eat. The two of them have been through such a lot over the past few months. From having to put up with us, our food fancies, chemo up’s and downs and so many things…. Care givers need some time off too don’t they? It’s shallow to say I’m grateful for them, but they are just the best

Keep fighting! I had NH Lymphoma 20 years ago. On the MACOP-B protocol myself. Pure hell. But you know that.
