We waited all day for the results – I think I drove Paul a little mad with my impatience. But what they said was no real surprise. The cancer has still progressed and is showing in other nodes around his body – but it isn’t ‘marching’ on as Paul puts it. We thought there was little chance it had miraculously stagnated so we were prepared for the fact it would be on the move again.
They don’t think they will ever be able to push it back into remission so the idea is to keep him healthy for as long as possible. They discussed starting him on the new drug tomorrow but they decided it wouldn’t make much difference if they start it on Monday so that he can come home for the weekend. We need him here, he needs to come home – we can have the honeymoon (or mini -moon as Natalie called it) weekend we wanted.
Paul is in pure indignant ‘fuck the disease’ mode which gives me the boost I need to be his faithful sidekick. ‘Super P’ and the ‘Marvellous Midget’ ride again in their hardest mission to date – to rid the world of ‘Master T-Cell’ and his deadly lymphocytes! He may be lurking in the dark alleys and lonely backstreets of the sleepy city, but the dynamic duo are always watchful, always alert to the sounds of his bastard footsteps………
Keep the faith people - we are xxxxxxxxxxx
