Back in August/Sept many of you were kind to support my wife and I when she was going through a rough patch and had recently been diagnosed. I wanted to bring some news and updates. Sue has had her first set of chemos and was referred to a surgeon in England, based at Gateshead, because his team was experienced enough to be more radical (Sue had some tumours in tricky places). She had a big op and was in hospital for a week and then stayed a further week nearby before coming home with me to Wales. The surgeon was very pleased and all the disease tissue was removed leaving only a few small specks (2 to 3 mms) and she is now to have another set of chemo. She is very tired from the op but very pleased. before the op and between chemo downs we enjoyed several trips and short breaks. We have booked a holiday in February and have a couple of short breaks before then. It has been very tough on us )especially Sue of course) but we are battling on and trying to take things in our stride. I must admit though I did a lot of pacing around when she was in the operating theatre for 7 hours! All the best everyone.
