Hi and Welcome....

The reason for my blog is that Colin had Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma (secondary kidney cancer). In addition to this, his eldest brother David died in April 2008, 5 weeks after being diagnosed with Laryngeal Cancer and his elder sister Sue was diagnosed with Lobular Breast Cancer in March 2009. All that said, I am still smiling and trying to be up beat about everything because if I wasn’t I don’t think I would cope as well as I have so far. Sadly Colin passed away on 23rd Dec 2009.

If you would like to follow or comment on this blog, then please feel free.

Treatment 1 - Day 6

Still going strong. Colin has now had doses 10 & 11 but that's it for Round 1 as he needs at least a week for his body to recover before he starts Round 2, which he will be starting on May 4th. So it looks like i've got a drive to Manchester and back tomorrow to pick him up (at least it's not a 6am start this time). Mind you he is being discharged at 9am in the morning. I have warned him I won't be there at 9 to pick him up though.

  1. I can imagine how glad you are this first part of his treatment is done.It will be nice for you and your son to have him home for a bit. Hopefully the weather will be nice for the drive there and back. My cousin from Guilford phoned this morning and said it has been gorgeous weather there.
    Sending you all gentle hugs...
