    Just as an update - things haven't gone too well lately.

    I was rushed to A&E just over 2 weeks ago with a suspected heart attack. Thankfully this was not the case but they found a large blood clot in one of my lungs ironically probably caused by one of my drugs. All my chemo treatment has been postponed and will not re-start.

    Still in hospital but now back on my normal ward and hoping to start a week of physio today. If all goes well I hope to go home at the end of this week.

    As soon as the clot is dispersed I shall begin the stem cell harvest and transplant work.

    So sorry to hear that, my friend. Hang in there. Though it will be a long road, I can tell you that the outcome of the stem cell harvesting/reintroduction can be very positive. My mother-in-law is now 10 years post-diagnosis and has not any substantial quality of life issues since she completed the treatment.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I was wondering how it was going. Sorry to hear you are facing new challenges. I will continue to pray for a complete recovery for you.

    Am praying for you as well.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Look around for some glass curtain walls. Might cut you a bit, but much more forgiving than brick!

    well there is a pin prick of light at the end of the tunnel.

    today I stared some chemo treatment to allow for injections to stimulate stem cell growth. these will then be harvested in a couple of weeks before being transplanted back into my system during mid July. the road to recovery has started. let's hope it's not a dead end!!
