Now I'm 74
« on: February 06, 2020, 11:18:36 AM »
Had a lovely day yesterday for my 74th birthday. My wife took me to the pictures to see 1917. Very realistic scenes of how it must have been but a lot of gore. Stopped for dinner on the way home and arrived back very tired but happy. Having another cystoscopy at the end of this month then another and fingers crossed the last course of chemo for my bladder cancer. I will keep my fingers crossed that the treatment over the last 2 years has worked and that cancer is now dealt with. The other two cancers I have seem to be in remission at the moment so I hope that continues to be the case. I'm determined to join you all in the field one day because I miss the company and banter terribly.

Lovely to hear from you again, and brilliant that you had a pleasant and peaceful celebration.  I'm just a few weeks behind you  - it doesn't half creep up!  Hope to meet up with you again before too long.  You're the nicest 'Grumpy' person I know...

All the best to you both,

Bob.

John wishing you a belated happy birthday. I have fingers crossed that the treatment will do its magic currently going thru the same treatment with my mother so I hope you are keeping your chin up and fighting a good battle and I sure I will see you swinging in the fields again soon. ATB and look after yourself.

The cystoscopy I had was all clear of cancer again visually but there was a red patch in the bladder wall so they took samples for a biopsy. This is just a precaution so they have booked me in for chemo from the end of March and into April. All looking good for me at the moment!!
