We had a VERY long day at Addenbrookes hospital on Friday.
But there was a reason for it and sadly the outcome isn't wonderful.
The Doctors have moved Col onto a new phase of treatment.......that is keeping him as well as possible for as long as possible.
We knew that that Mantle Cell Non Hodgkins Lymphoma is one of the most aggressive types of cancer...........treatable but not curable is what they said right at the start, and none of the options he has had have worked so far, so the change to a more palliative form of care wasn't a surprise.
I'm mentioning this here because that's what's happening and plan to keep blogging because I want everything to be as normal as possible so no histrionics and wailing and gnashing of teeth will be seen here!
(and none in comments please)
So normality this weekend just gone was a short trip out on Saturday morning, an extremely busy morning on Sunday when Col's brother came with his Heath Robinson log splitter (pictured here in March last year) and split about a ton of logs which are now safely stored in the shed and in builders bags...... Winter 2018/19 sorted and probably a good bit of 2019/20 too. A cooked dinner for 4 people ( Col's sister came too) and an afternoon with baby cuddles .......pictures tomorrow. Then an evening of recovering!
Welcome to even more followers, happy to see you, hope you enjoy my scribblings from a cottage in Suffolk
