Just a short one tonight to let you know that we got the results of the scan through tonight and they show a ‘good partial remission’. In other words it looks like the chemo is doing its job inside and out. Apparently his glands have reduced to between 50 and 75% which is utterly brilliant!
It’s very hard to not want to punch the air in joy but I’m torn between utter elation and the need to keep a rational head on my shoulders. It looks good, but we have been in this position before and it’s snuck back in the back door, so I do have to keep some sort of perspective. “Don’t ride the rollercoaster, don’t ride the rollercoaster, don’t ride the rollercoaster…..”
He starts the heavy chemo again tomorrow – the one that made him feel like a sick bucket last time, but they said s he has less disease to fight now it might make it a bit easier.
Anyway watch this space and keep up the chanting – Paul is really convinced it’s helping that you are all thinking about him and egging him on and I do too xxxx
