Bet he feels like an elephant, shaking his big grey trunk for the hell of it
Elephant – Tame Impala
Welcome to Dial M. This won’t be a blog of the minutiae of my life. Just a record of my experience with myeloma. If you want the rest, you’ll have to take me out for a drink. And we can both promise, on those occasions, not to mention myeloma at all.
In 9 days time (if all goes to plan), I will have a stem cell transplant. One friend has already pointed out that this sounds quite “whizz bang”. In fact, it will just be a bag of blood, attached to a drip. I’ve even seen the bag before, because it’s my blood, and I was there when they took it out. Actually, in fairness, the apheresis machine they used to do so was quite whizzy. You don’t often come across centrifuge jokes. So that one was a technical novelty, even if it’s not very funny. Hmm. I’m getting distracted here. Focus. Where was I? Oh, yes. Cancer. How could I forget.
I’ve put some backstory on here about the last few months of my life (the months leading up to diagnosis, followed by front line treatment). I’ll be updating on here while I’m in hospital, when I’m bored, which might be quite often. Leave me comments!
