Pipes and pipes

Waiting to hear if I'll stay on the trial or not. Interestingly- mixed feelings but I trust the team at WGH enough to run with whatever decision they/we make.

Meantime leaking solar pipes now fixed and all up and running except for one thing- no sun!! Also, now have my electronic (bag)pipes so I can pick up playing the old tunes again. As soon as I got them this morning I was playing them- amazing( isn't it, Grace(a joke?)) how the tunes can stay in your fingers but if you asked me to write the music or whistle a tune I probably couldn't do it. First tune I had a go at was " Invisible Dram" ( dram being Scots for a measure of whisky)- I wrote this tune for Elspeth's dad- every year we gave him a bottle of whisky for his xmas but we never saw any of it!! Hence the Invisible Dram!

Your story is interesting to me Stewart as I wait for the chance to take part in a Revlimid trial here in Australia. I was stuck by your comment that uncertainity is the only certainty about this business of living with myeloma.
Yes and again yes.
