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 3

3 more doses done, he's now had 6 out of the 14 and only had mild side effects - rigors and vomitted once last night. So so far so good, hopefully it will stay that way.
Thanks for all your messages of support they are greatly appreciated.
Hopefully I won't get woken up by Kieran tonight as I'm not used to being woken up at 4am, 6.45am is quite early enough thanks :-).
