Second opinion

What a difference!
The new Oncologist I am seeing is so different, more positive. He knows I know the score and is very supportive, even if I try alternatives as I have decided not to have chemo at the moment. I am having radiotherapy treatments on 27th, 28th and 29th December to stop any cancer cells spreading to the operation site.
Merry Christmas and a happier new year.
2007 will hopefully bring some good news.

Happy birthday Kieran


My little boy will be 10 today. He is growing up to be a wonderful and wise little boy. I took him out to eat and he will have a party later as it has been so busy with all that has happened this year. I hope I can make it up to him.
I love you little bean x

Happy Birthday Dad


Happy Birthday to my dear dad who would have been 69 today.
I love him and miss him so much. He loved Christmas, he would make mince pies and would enjoy singing his karaoke songs.
He was wonderful.
I will remember him forever.

Chemo conveyer belt

I went to see the oncologist today and was shocked to find that he had given me 6-9 months to live. I was offered chemo and was told that no amount of excercise, diet or life changing would help my condition. I felt like I was being given the option for chemo and then left in a corner to die. I told the consultant in no uncertain terms that I would not except that. I was also told I could claim a grant from the goverment (IIDB) for having Mesothelioma. I knew this information was wrong as it can only be claimed if the sufferer had worked in an asbestos industry.
Now I am on a mission to prove him wrong. I have also asked for a second opinion.
