Still alive and kicking
« on: August 27, 2019, 10:50:54 AM »
Just an update for those members that know me and a hello to those that don't. I'm still about and working on DS behind the scenes. After having health problems the last 4 years my detecting outings are very limited but I fully intend to get back to it when things improve. Last Sunday I attended the Western General hospital for a cystoscopy for my bladder cancer and the result was I have no tumours there. This is the 2nd clear result in 6 months after I went through chemo. so keeping my fingers crossed the next cystoscopy in 3-4 months time will give the same result. Between now and then I will have 3 more doses of chemo. as a top up. The other 2 cancers I have both seem to be in remission at the moment so things are looking up. ;D
