Cancelled my flights for my little holiday today. Next year I'll take a long one.
:( :( :(

Most important thing is you make a full recovery, Vespa.

You are still young - you have plenty of time to make up for cancelled plans.

Hope you are doing ok? Well, as ok as you can be given the treatment.
I wouldn't be able to see the people and do the things I wanted anyway, so next year it'll be easier and more fun.
Take care, Vespa.

About to start what I hope is the last round of chemo, got a scan next week so they can look at the tumour - based on that I'll get a date for my big op.

All the best sir - I'm sure all will be fine and dandy in due course.

Thanks, I was a little worried that my hemicolectomy would be delayed by the consultant told me last week that it'll be fine.

Thanks mate.

I had my (hopefully) last treatment of this horrible drug called oxaliplatin which is frankly fucking horrible stuff that makes your hands and feet numb, you sick fo ten days, tired etc but it's top-notch at killing cancer.

Got a consult in three weeks when this round ends and they'll tell me when they are going to cut 30cm of my bowel and a nice slice of a muscle with it.

Actually looking forward to it.

When you meet people who have cancer of the face and will need a new jaw I realise in the pantheon of cancers I'm quite lucky.
