So I’ve been taking pills to stop the growth of my cancer since March. It’s now December. My life in this period has been one of extreme paranoia - I know the pills won’t work forever. They have been doing an awesome job of keeping me tired (the #1 side effect) and has made my skin very irritable with tight clothing so I’m extremely casual these days.
The scans I’ve had have shown excellent progress - infact the last one showed that there was no active cancer left.
Off to Paultons Park for the day. Which is a good thing as he got a tablet for his Birthday which requires the internet and Virgin Media disabled my access for 5 days due to an admin error revolving around a non delivered Hub5 to replace my Hub3.
Anyway, we had an awesome time and seeing sheer joy on their faces as they rode the roller coasters really lifted my spirits and reminded me that quality family time is simply the best medicine you can ever have.
This lad doesn’t seem to want for much, he was very happy with a new digital watch for his Birthday along with an Among Us tracksuit. He started the day with football training with Burton Youth FC. He’s really missed this due to lock down and football resuming on his Birthday was a huge win for him!
After football we had lunch, presents and cake. To help the cake go down we then went to the beach where Theo displayed his knowledge of the Karate Kid as seen below.
As I blogged about at the start of the year, I revealed that I have cancer. At the start of February I noticed a lump on my lump. This eventually turned into two lumps on my lump and was starting to give me some pain so I was called in for PET and MRI scans. Last week I was given the results of these scans and sadly, the cancer has spread from the single lymph node to my shoulder, spine and liver.
I recently posted about that my ERLite died. Well, it turns out that the flashing green light generally means a power supply issue. EDIT The ERLite is about 3 and a half years old as I’ve had a few people ask me that.
Not having a spare 12V 1A adapter with the right barrel made testing this pretty darn hard and desperate times convinced me to buy the USG (which is still working like a champ, no regrets here!
