Flood : Day + 156

Hello all. Back to work tomorrow…unbelievable. My fatigue is a little worse this days, it seems to fluctuate. But am still feeling well enough to be up and about and start working part-time again. Visited the academy for a meeting on Friday and was overwhelmed by a warm welcome. A surreal experience to be back…the same world through different eyes. Came home to find the flat flooded and Bridget desperately using every towel in the house to prevent damage. Nothing too bad: Am sitting here with two industrial humidifiers whirring away and half the carpet removed. Insurance is a GOOD thing. Latest results show a 96% graft/host ratio in my bone marrow which is “as good as can be hoped for”. So far so good. Still no GVHD, let’s see how it all progresses. In the meantime, follow your bliss- and do one thing that scares you today (nothing dangerous) adios, miltonus


Back : Day + 152

Just returned from an extended stay in Greece. It was great to get away and look at the blue sky, swin in the sea and gaze at shooting stars. My latest results show that my bone marrow is 94% new. That is very good apparently. I am very grateful.

I am very sorry to here terrible news about 2 fellow cancer friends of mine. Julie-Anne Congdon passed away on August 21st 2005 following GVHD problems during her BMT. She was a very inspiring woman and I send my condolences and very best wishes to her family. Eric Roche passed away on September 6th 2005. Eric was an extraordinary musician and spirit and will be sorely missed by so many others. My thoughts go out to his family.

I go back to work on Monday, I can’t believe it but it’s here, another life. I wonder what it will bring this time?
