  • Good Morning Brave Jedi! Just catching up with whats happening with you. We are in the caravan in the back of beyond so wi-fi a bit hit and miss. I hope by this time you've got all your bits and pieces of cells etc well and truly bedded in. If you need to get your temperature down get yourself over here, it's flaming freezing! All the best.

    You must be exhausted with it all .

    Slowly and gently onwards and upwards .

  • As you can see, Chris, we are all rooting for you all the way along. You certainly are one tough cookie! You are an inspiration to us all. You should have had your transplant done in Scotland - that would have kept you cool ("b" cold actually!). Hope you got a good night's R&R and keep that spirit strong. x

  • Dear JR,

    Thanks again for keeping us up to date with your progress. Think of you many times a day and wing happy thoughts to you. You are, without question, a remarkable man and I don't believe for one minute you don't have your darker moments from time to time but how you stamp on them is the key. Good luck for today and no doubt the sun is shining in your room unlike the grey and moody skies here in Surrey.

    All the very best,

    Linda x

  • Guys it was the lull before the storm as I've been battling high temperature throughout the night , , body reacting to stem cell infusion, , I'm fairly calm now , , but had iv paracetamol doses and fluids up. . Fingers crossed I can remain cool, , it's a tricky one to sort out. . Thanks for comments which I enjoy reading xxx

  • Cool, virtual hugs coming your way Chris. X

  • I hope your body settles down soon. It all sounds very uncomfortable, so I'm sending you lots of good thoughts. It sounds as if you could use my grandchildren's favourite cooling treat --Star Wars freezies. They're in these brilliant colours- lime green, turquoise, purple, and they've almost demolished a large pack in no time, in facts I've discovered its dangerous to stand too near the freezer compartment as they try to beat each other to their favourite colour, they race forward, yelling and whooping. A few times I've thought the next headline on facebook would be "grannie gets trampled in freak accident in son's house". Its the start of a long weekend here, but we've had storms, torrential rain, lightning etc., underpasses under water, you name it, and more in the forecast. People have been out with brooms, hands, anything to try and clear blocked drains as we've had flash floods. Good wishes from the soggy prairies.

  • Aww hope you are soon in calm waters

  • Small comfort, but I'm holding you in my thoughts for a great outcome. Do you get an implanted dip-stick to go with all the new fluids?

  • What can I say they have all said it before, you are just inspirational, so fight the good fight. Jean
