..bone biopsy that is! It was delivered under sedation, although it wasn’t completely pain free this time. It was also lovely to see my consultant, Dr Poppat, earlier than expected on the ward. I was able to report on my progress and the plans for my long term remission, providing him with plenty of time to find a cure. I have also offered my services to talk at conferences about how to beat this. See there is fight in the old dog yet!
My biggest sadness is missing my work and the people I used to spend so much time with. I am also quite frustrated as to how slowly my energy levels are returning as I still get quite tired in the afternoon but people keep telling me it’s still early days.
The challenge now is to raise awareness of this dreadful cancer. So if any of you out there can think of ways of helping me to do this I would be most grateful. More awareness attracts more funding meaning more research and the chance of a cure being found in time to save my life. It all sounds a bit dramatic but that is the fact. More popular cancer’s attract more funding (although it all helps) we need to get Myeloma in the public eye. You might have heard that the comedian Felix Dexter died at the age of 52 last Friday and lots more younger people are being diagnosed.
So please get your thinking caps on I need all the help I can get.
Take care dear friends
