Well my Roy Castle family and friends it does seem that I have come down the rocky road right to the end of the road rather faster than I imagined or liked. I was taken into hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning last week as I was struggling for breath.
To cut a long story short it appears that I have an infection, fluid, tumour blocking ducts, low white and red count, and on Monday after a CT scan blood clots to both lungs.
The upshot of all this is that I have refused any more chemo as I think the side effects are worse than the cancer symptoms.
Tomorrow I am transferring to the local hospice who will take over my symptom and pain management.
Although none of us knows when our time will come I suspect it may be a little sooner for me than others.
I would just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all who participate on this site, some of you have given me great support and I think of you as family as much as friends.
I now need to concentrate on my immediate family and also on finalising certain arrangements, so I don't think I shall be posting on this site anymore.
Stay Well everybody.
