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 4

Not quite as good a day today:-(. Colin didn't have a very good night last night and has had a high temperature and pulse (side effect) most of the day so didn't get to have dose 7 until about 15.30 today but hopefully will be able to have no 8 around midnight if everything is normal.
Colin asked me to thank everyone for their messages by E-greeting, Text and via me. Well I think that's what he said anyway, his voice is very croaky so its difficult to understand him, but that's nothing new!!!.

I had a good nights sleep last night - got the bed all to myself with no 8 year old visitors this time, can we do the same tonight please Kieran!!!!

  1. Don't worry too much it sounds like typical
    effects of HD IL2,mine were worse at #6, but managed 8 doses total the first round.All my
    subsequent treatments were in the Intensive Care
    Unit...it might seem scary but the teams that give IL2 know how to manage the side effects well.

    Be brave
