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 5

Col was awake most of the night, last night. This morning he had the "evil" nurse who stresses him out, then does his Obs and says his pulse is too high. After the shift change his pulse was low enough for dose 8 at 3pm. He should get at least one more dose in (hopefully 2 more) before they kick him out and I get to drive to Manchester again to pick him up - no visits to football stadiums this time though Kieran, my purse hasn't recovered from the last time yet.
