Blog etc

Decision has now been made that the thalidomide treatment I have been having is of no benefit and has now been stopped. My paraprotein continues to rise and is now at 50. Unfortunately, I've tried all the other available treatments and in short I will from now on be having no treatment at all. This means I'm moving away from therapeutic care to palliative care. For that reason I think I'll stop writing the blog as it was always meant to give an insight in to my experience of treatment for myeloma. Moving to palliative care is a wee bit different. So- all the best to all- you can of course contact me by email if you want. Or if you use Skype I can be called on stewart.asquith and Elspeth on elspeth52 Interesting to note that since I started writing the blog there have been about 10,000 hits from all over the world. Maybe someone else will write a blog.

Hi Stewart

Thanks for your interesting and inspiring blogs. I hope you are fit enough to keep up the renovation work on your beloved Moultons. I'm not sure if this merits a thank you or not but for some inexplicable reason I always now check the Brechin City result on a Saturday night. Seriously thinking about seeking help! Looking forward to sending you a congratutory note when they get promotion.

Stay strong
