Trying times

We headed into the New Year with the knowledge that they needed to redo all the tests and re consent for the trial, due to the steroids my wife was taking. This was bloody annoying as it meant three more days in various hospitals, with numerous bloods being taken, and an awful lot of hanging around (what is it with hospitals and waiting around?).

But the trial has started today. She went in this morning, and had the two injections and blood tests and whatever else. I wasn’t there, my mother in law took her as I had to take care of our children. She will be in over night, being monitored. The trial is for a form of radiotherapy, mixed with other drugs.

The most worrying thing though is the potential risks. This is phase one, so really early days, and we have no way of knowing if it will have any benefit. But we also know it may have considerable downsides, and this could lead to the only other option (chemo) not being available (if she gets sick from the trial). It is damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

So mentally it hasn’t been a great few weeks. Let’s see how the drugs go.

  2. Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog such as this require a
    massive amount work? I have no expertise
    in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic however I just needed to ask.
    Appreciate it!

    1. Hi, it doesn’t take to long, really depends on what you want to include. Think of something you want to write about and do it. I had no knowledge, but set up a website through Hostpapa, and used the WordPress software in the website to create the blog

  3. Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual
    effort to create a good article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never seem
    to get anything done.

  4. Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.

    Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  5. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
    for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net
    will be much more useful than ever before.

  6. After exploring a handful of the blog posts on your web site, I truly appreciate your way
    of writing a blog. I saved it to my bookmark
    webpage list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my website as well
    and let me know what you think.

  7. Hey there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group?

    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content.
    Please let me know. Thanks
