Back in July I had a CT scan where Alice noticed something very small on my left lung. She explained at the time that the only way of being sure whether this was the return of the cancer was to wait for another 4 months to see if it grew. It has been a fairly worrying period of time on the one hand, although I must say on the other hand I have had lots to keep me distracted…new job, marathon training, Catherine and the boys.
Anyway, I have just had ‘that’ scan and the news is that it is all clear!….phew. She has put it down to a very small nodule which has probably always been there. Apparently we all have them:-). I have an MRI (liver) on Friday which I am confident will be ok, particularly as the latest blood tests were all good.
I know it is often said that those who are the closest to the person who is actually going through the cancer treatment itself, are often forgotten and can suffer just as much. As I continue to reflect on what I have been through over the last 2 years (second anniversary being next Saturday) it is a moment for me to say just how incredible my wife Catherine has been throughout everything…without her support particularly in the ‘post treatment’ phase, I honestly don’t think I would be in the place I am today.
Once we get the MRI out the way next week, I think a big family holiday is a must!…particularly for Catherine and the boys who haven’t been away for a proper break for a long time now.
