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.

Manchester cancelled....

We have not gone to Manchester today for Colin's CT Scan.

On Wed Colin went to see our GP as he has been having problems with his left arm, his eyesight and he keeps forgetting words or what he is trying to say.

Then at 9 am yesterday she phoned and asked me to take him to MAU (medical assessment unit) at our local hospital so they could do a CT scan of his head.
They did a CT scan at 3.30 yesterday and it showed that he has metastasis (tumors) on his brain which are causing the problems with his arm, eye's and memory. They have kept him in overnight and hopefully he will be seeing an Oncologist today to discuss the findings and hopefully a treatment plan.
