Walking the tightrope
Good evening to all you lovely forumites.
Well, it's two years and four months since His Lordship was deemed inoperable, and nineteen months since the surgery which DID remove his tumour (along with massive peritoneal spread).
And we've just had the unbelievable news that his latest scan shows him to still be NED.
I can't begin to describe the relief and gratitude we feel tonight.
Yes, there is radiation damage. Yes, he has a permanent colostomy. No, his body and our lives will never be the same again.
Once cancer has entered your life, it's like walking a tightrope the whole time. Some parts can be fairly steady, others are distinctly wobbly. But there is always, always the danger that you might fall off.
For now, Lord GT and I get to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
So to anybody who is in the middle of treatment and feeling overwhelmed by it all, there CAN be hope. Dig in, keep going, keep hoping
And to all those of you who helped ME when I was distintly overwhelmed, thank you.
I'm not here on the forum as often as I used to be ... all part of the 'moving on' process I suppose. But I am endlessly grateful for the support I received and it's good to see that continue here.
Love to all of you.
