Many thanks to you all for your good wishes, and prayers. I've been out of hospital for 2 weeks and have started chemo therapy (1 session)I have also had cryo-therapy at Papworth.
These last few wheeks have been something of a blur and for reasons of self preservation have tended to be in a different dimension, I have checked into MC but the chemo is energy sapping and haven't participated much.
On a positive note the cryo-therapy has an almost immediate and beneficial element that has cheered me up up somewhat.
If anyone feels like offering a prayer I'd be grateful if it was in the direction of Saint Pio, thanks.
I have a long road to get out of these woods, and it's early days, but I feel more positive now and will carry on.
Thanks again for encouragement, I will keep you posted as best I can.
