With just over 3 months now to the lung surgery, I have been crossing my fingers that the latest CT scan (which I had last week) was clear. Catherine and I have just walked out from seeing Alice and am thrilled to say we’re all good!!...totally clear of any cancer traces with a blood marker which is completely within normal levels...at 3.
To get this news just before we head off on our much anticipated family holiday to Florida is just fantastic!....something to celebrate with the boys tonight for sure.
Whilst I will have a couple of appointment with the lung surgeon and heart consultant shortly, I expect nothing than a quick catch up chat.
Essentially that me now left alone for another 6 months when I am scanned once again.
On the running front, things are not quite as I would have liked in that it is taking some time for the remaining lung to take up the slack. That’s fine as long as I know in time it will ‘come’ and I can run without having to stop every 5 mins to catch my breath. I am in touch with a few others online who have lost a lung due to cancer...I’m hoping they can give me a bit of encouragement that it does get easier.
My sights remaining focused on London next year...plenty of time and now with the news that I am all clear it’s given me a reinvigorated sense of purpose!...bring it on!!
Have a great summer holiday everyone 👍☀️!!
