All ideas and info. provided here are to be discussed with your medical professionals. I am NOT Medically trained. I have merely had this vile disease since 1998 - always use your Common Sense and seek expert medical advice.
YOU MAY FIND THE LINKS in text and in the Right Sidebar of Help.
I can NOT vouch for any external site that I may direct readers to & therefore can NOT accept any legal responsibility - this is a personal blog of that which I believe only.
I do NOT believe there are magical cures hidden from us by our medical professionals though there are without doubt cases that seem cured as if by magic. Medical knowledge of this disease is very rudimentary and research frequently profligate but pointless!
However - sticking goji berries in your ear on a moonless night or similar WILL NOT HELP - Nor will the price paid for quackery be it here OR Mexico, Brazil or China!
There are many health care professionals trying their very best with great care and compassion but perfection is a little way off!
Be Minded:
I have cancer - cancer does not have me!

"Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come". - (Julius Caesar - Act II, Scene II).

02-May-2011- DAMN - My Temp. is UP 37.5C

02-May-2011- DAMN - My Temp. is UP 37.5C


I know I wasn't feeling too chipper but I stayed up to listen to Obama's speech on Osama Bin Laden which was at 04:30hrs.

Could this be why the William & Kate honeymoon was cancelled? Did America give a heads up this event was going down as I had heard they planned to go to an exclusive venue in Jordan.

Whatever - felt lousy when I surfaced and had a tummy ache and also a temp. of 37.5C and my little booklet tells me to phone in to chemo >pager< at Velindre if I have a temp. of 37.5C or above.

So I called and gave my symptoms and all seems NO PANIC BUT!

The concern is that I may have a slight infection, possibly oral, as I have mouth ulcers and the concern is that I may be neutropenic (long word for low white blood cell count).

So its me for a quick shower - throw some clothes on and trundle down to the Gwent for a blood check in MSU (Medical Support Unit).

The tummy ache is still there but Sam (chemo sister) thinks that may be delayed reaction to last week's chemo.

I have to take an overnight bag as they may need to put me on a drip - I am not looking forward to explaining this to Lee as she will be bound to be worried.

Oh well off for a shower - This may be the first variance but I'm sure it won't be the last - they might even give me something for the apparent temperature induced head ache!

I just want to say sorry for copping out at times and leaving Lee and friends to cope!
Any help and support YOU can give her will be hugely welcome.
I do make a lousy patient!
If YOU want to follow my fight against Cancer from when it started and I first presented with symptoms see The TAB just below the Header of this Blog. called >DIARY of Cancer< just click and it will give you a long list of the main events in chronological order.
Thoughts and comments will be in chronological order in the main blog and can be tracked in the >ARCHIVE< in the Right Sidebar. You may find the TABS >MEDICAL LINKS< and also >CANCER LINKS< of help.
YOU are welcome to call me if you believe I can help in ANY way.
