    Re: Grace under fire....

    Congrats!

    Although I vaguely recall there being a bell in the hallway, nobody asked me to ring it when I finished chemo. Which was OK by me, I just wanted to get the hell out of there.

    Best wishes to you and your better half.

    It is a beautiful thing indeed watching the two of you go through this- there has to be SOMETHING positive in this right?

    Whilst being eternally grateful to everyone in the hospital, and we have got to know the Chemo Nurses very very well over the last 16 months (ish), I'll be glad if I never see a single one of them again. Stay cool Brian. Cheers Pal.

    Re: Grace under fire....

    DING DONG DONE...

    Spot on 7 bells Thursday. Bombardment over. Still standing.

    I took a picture of Audrey ringing the bell, but me eyes were that full of tears ( that bloody air conditioning in hospitals eh??) I pressed the wrong bleedin button, and probably ordered a pizza instead.

    18 weeks of continuous chemo, and she's still smiling.





    Here's a picture of her rifling through me wallet in me back pocket whilst I wasn't looking. I knew smiling for the camera was a bloody mistake....





    A few of the 40 plus Nurses that have gotten her over the line...safe hands all. They clapped her to the bell. It nearly broke my bloody heart.




    Now we wait. CT scans, bloods, various poking and prodding's. November is big, we'll know if it's worked by the end of the month.

    Lads.

    What a crew you all are, Thanks a million for your kindness, every last bloody one of you.

    All the best to both of you in the coming month (s).

    A colleague of mine is going through the same stuff as Audrey; Chemo etc ….. about to have an operation shortly.

    She pops in to work occasionally smiling, laughing and carrying on whilst we're all a bunch of miserable tw*ts……… shame on us

    Hope she's still giving you lots of grief as well as milking your wallet

    Al's honesty has been a revelation in how to deal with my own thing. I'm an extremely private person with stuff like this, and yet this thread is here. Like you allude to, we all take a lead sometimes from those that know the ground better. There are another 3 guys here whom have been simply fantastic in private from the off, I won't name them, being the discrete bastid that I am...

    Re: Grace under fire....

    OK.

    The quick news from the front.

    Overarching outcomes from the chemo, CT, blood tumour markers et al are ones of stability.

    In this cancer dodge, I'll take that every day of the week.

    Been a long year. Finally Audrey can have a rest until we resume further CT's and bloods, and result dependent perhaps further treatment in the new year.

    She's OK at present Lads....phew.

    Thanks a million for continued grace.

    Thanks Guy.

    We've brought our best game, every single thing we have. You hear right, I honestly believe it's a big part of it.

    To see this Lady laughing in a chemo suite, under real pressure, as an act of sheer defiance against the misery this illness trades in..well, it'd bring tears to a glass eye.

    Nearly burst with pride.

    Stay cool my Mate

    Alright Alex, how you doing mate?

    Yep, it's been a bit rum over the last 18 months, that's for sure.

    Thanks for your words, appreciate them.

    Until then mate, stay well.
