Dear friends I thought I'd let you know that I started the phase 1 trial into a new drug to cut off blood supply to the tumours at the Christie. Its very time consuming but not had any nasty side effects so far. I have to go every weekday to get an injection and this first week was a lots of blood tests, ecgs, etc but apart from mondays and some longer days most days will just be about an hour and a half so I'm relieved that I can fit in quite a lot of my usual activities like tai chi, yoga, aerobics, swimming etc. Only thing I will miss is my monday morning volunteering at manchester donkey sanctuary but will see my mates and get donkey cuddles some weekends. I'm feeling really well and positive most days. doing my best with nutrition and visualisation and seeing my lovely little grandaughter Lily when I can. Got lots to live for especially the birth of my second grandchild due in May. If you haven't already I really recommend reading Radical Remission which I found really inspiring.
I had a big party with lots of dancing for my 60th last saturday - a milestone I didn't think I'd se a few years ago!
Love and hugs
