The Score

Ok so here goes, the results of the scan show ...drum roll please... The chemo IS working!

The tumours in my lungs have shrunk dramatically and the others show no growth thus remaining stable. This is after only two rounds and good news!!! I have also been told that the stable tumours are the larger ones and with more treatment may yet shrink, they have changed shape which could be an effect of the treatment and hopefully mean cells are dying on the inside. Again good news!!

Now for the icing on the cake... I have had a few more tests for my cortisol levels but now I am off home with two weeks leave from the oncologist! Two more weeks to recover strength and to my mind work on our charity projects including our skydive and the Race for Life. This I can do with the enormous weight of chemo lifted away until afterwards!!!

I am tempted to pack things in but I still have to pace myself ... Oh but it is so tempting!!

So please make my potential burn out worthwhile by visiting www.imagineit.org.uk and sponsoring me!!
