I still can’t quite believe how much the world has changed in the past few weeks! It has really put my own predicament into perspective. Whilst I know I face a tough road ahead with a terminal cancer diagnosis, right now this feels very trivial when I think of the thousands of families up and down the country who have lost loved ones from this terrible virus.
Like nearly everyone I am working from home in this ‘new normal’. I’ve been advised to stay isolated from Catherine and the boy’s as best as I can. The hospital have said that whilst I am not ‘in treatment’ at the moment (chemo / radio), the fact that I have terminal cancer and one lung puts me at a higher risk than most. Anyway can’t complain and fortunately we converted our garage a few years back so I am shacked up in there at the moment!😂. Sounds much worse than it is…it’s is really very comfortable with a lounge, bathroom and bedroom so all good. I am seeing Catherine and the boy’s every day in the garden which is great. Also managing to run every day (around 60k a week) which as always has been a godsend and really helped me stay focused and mentally strong
It’s difficult to know at the moment what will happen next month when I am meant to have my next blood test and appointment with Alice to see how much the cancer has developed…hopefully not a lot 🤣. I really do still continue to remain very optimistic about the future and cling on to the hope that maybe a clinical trial maybe something I can benefit from once the lockdown has past.
I hope everyone reading this is safe and healthy.
