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.

Round 1 Part 2 - Day 1

Colin has his first dose of HD IL-2 at 12 noon today and it took 4 hours for some mild side effects to kick it which were rigors, high temperature and high pulse. His next dose should be around 8pm if everything is back to normal, but after speaking to him I think it will be around 9 or 10pm.
Its our 19th wedding anniversary today and the first time we haven't been together which feels very strange.
I had a small visitor call Kieran at 4am this morning because he was being attacked by his pillow in his dreams.
I was very good when I got home from work and mowed the lawn as Colin didn't do it at the weekend ;-) and it was getting very long.

If anyone wants to send Colin an e-greeting here is a link:
He is on Ward 11 again


  1. Happy Anniverary to you both

  2. Happy 19th Wedding Anniversary for today
    Love & Best Wishes

  3. Thanks. No flowers this year and my card is still in the shop :(

  4. Happy Anniversary Sandy. Even though you and Colin aren't physically together today you are tied together, heart and soul.
