So after 3 months on lock down and all treatment cancelled. Mavis`s scan results show Meso has now spread out to her spine. Would this have happened if we were able to continue with treatment ,we will never know. The a cursed corona Price tag is with us all. However tomorrow is a new start. Its a return to the Royal Marsden to go back on the trial. Our hope is that it will halt or even reduce the invasion of the spine. We are aware that we are both old codgers but we are not ready to pop off just yet. After fighting meso for 11 years it would be sad to succombe to covid . For my part well I had a telephone consultation a few weeks ago. My condition is considered stable. I will be contacted at a later date.
Today is a bright sunny day and we are full of hope, we try to remain positive, its hard at times. Tomorrow she will spend about 5 or 6 hours in the hospital ,I am banned from entry so I will have to sit in the cr in car park. I will take a bit of lunch in case I get hungry. Toilet `s will be my issue as I am not allowed entry. WTS.
But for Maves welfare its a small price to pay. In a couple of weeks it will be our Diamond anniversary. 60 years married. and exactly 63 years together.. Someone recently asked me whats my secret. All I can say is respect , Understanding. Love unconditional. and simply saying yes dear in the right places lol. I couldnt wish for a better partner, she is my rock. I rely and trust her judgement on all matters.
Today we worked in the garden in the sunshine mending a fence and a bit of trimming more of that to come. we try not to over do it,pottering is the answer. She keeps in touch on her manny social media sites, she has found that we dont have to travel all over to conferences now we have zoom,thats handy. Sometimes she can do 3 in a day amazing what technology can do.
Well thats enough waffle from me today I will update with any new results.
