Post Clinic Thoughts
Elspeth and I have now had a think about life and the universe after the news at the clinic last week and the main important conclusion we've come to is that we might in fact buy a twin coil solar cylinder to boost our solar system!.
In terms of other issues- particularly leaving the drug trial and my rising paraprotein, we'll do as we also do- concentrate on making sure we make the most of what time we have now- both personally and also in terms of keeping some work going. I'll find out in a months time just how fast the myeloma is progressing and we can make a better decision then with the WGH team about what options remain. So we'll wait til then and focus on other things for now. I do of course think over the future etc and what might be..... but I've never let the myeloma stop me doing things. As I've said all along- my TMTMTM principle ( There's More To Me Than Myeloma) has helped me put it aside when I want to get on with other things- it gets put in my diary as a separate item.
So......... delighted to tell you that I have in fact been able to get an invitation to be a guest on a sailing of the Reaper at the time of the Pittenweem Festival in August and looking forward to it immensely. See Reaper in the foto. Also possibility of a wee holiday in Norway ( a country and people we like very much) later in the month depending on how things go at next clinic.
