Hard to believe that Christmas is already over. Paul and I hope you had a wonderful time wherever you are in the world and whatever you have been doing over the Christmas.
Paul and I were at home. We listened to great Christmas concerts in front of the Christmas tree, caught up with family and friends all over the world and went out for a long walk at the sea front this morning as it was bright and sunny here today.
We really enjoyed Christmas. It felt very special. And we were able to enjoy every single moment of it.
Tomorrow we will have to go to the hospital to get Paul's bloods done prior to his last Carbo Platin infusion on Thursday.
Paul has been feeling well and no side-effects except for tiredness. It is really great. His body is so so strong.
We will get a scan - CT and bone - early in the new year and then meet with Professor McDermott to decide what to do next.
The talk I posted here recently by Professor McDermott from two years ago was so encouraging for us. He seems so very knowledgeable and not in favour of the one size fits all approach at all. So we will see what he thinks. Maybe a break and then Carbo Platin again? Maybe Docetaxol combined with Carbo so that the bone mets get treated as well? Or perhaps try to go back on the anti-hormone treatments? We will see. But we are both feeling quite hopeful for the new year.
With best wishes to all of you, lots of light, warmth, hope, positive thoughts, health and whatever you wish for yourselves!
Mel and Paul.
