I got my five year all clear yesterday. It has been a long and at times arduous five years but I have reached the milestone. My medical team deserve huge thanks and the support of family and friends (including you) has been vital. After a pint I celebrated with a three course meal of crab beignets, grilled smoked haddock and ice cream. That was washed down with a decent Sauvignon Blanc. And an espresso. A three course meal doesn't always work. Sometimes it gives me cramps or makes me sleep or reappears. Last night it was almost like old times.
In the morning I received an email saying "Dear Dr Soper " , the formal advice that I'd got a PhD. What a day. What a day. All I need now is for Leicestershire County Cricket team to beat Glamorgan over the weekend ; a third miracle.
