Sorry to have to post a boring blog but nothing is happening!  I went for my appointment yesterday and my counts all looked fine so, no change!   I don't have to go back for 6 weeks!  This is, to be honest, partly because I will be away for a fortnight over what would have been my next appointment in 4 weeks time, but clearly they are not worried about me.  It may seem strange to be taking a holiday when I have been "on holiday" for the past 7 months but, of course, the family haven't and we are celebrating the end of A levels for Corina and GCSEs for Tania.

I did raise the thorny subject of returning to work yesterday and will be progressing that line over the next few weeks.  Fortunately the people at work plan to let me in gently as I do not yet know how much energy I will have or, for that matter, how much power of concentration.  The consultant did warn me that both may be severely limited to start with!

Michelle is doing fine but getting fed up with sitting in hospital waiting for her neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) to recover from her chemo, so that she can have a few days at home.  We were celebrating them going from 0.1 to 0.2 last Friday (lots of high fives!) so hopefully they continue to go up to the critical 0.5 she needs at a good rate.

Well, that's it for now. I'll try to post once of twice before my next appointment to keep you updated on things.
