One foot forward (then again...)

Day +300

Hello again in blogland.

For the past two weeks I have been back in hospital. Lots of tests but not much in the way of answers from the Docs. My legs feel very weak, especially the right which is giving me a pins and needles sensation. I have a nerve test tomorrow - then hopefully some answers should be forthcoming.

I think they've run out of ideas. They asked me yesterday if I'd been to Africa recently. Doesn't fill you with much confidence does it? They are also hesitant to biopsy the spots on my spine. On the plus side the few days of steroids have now finished - thankfully.

Currently watcing episodes of 'Ever Decreasing Circles' to cheer me up. Richard Briars is a comedy god!

Current Reading: 'Lunar Park' by Bret Easton Ellis
Current Listening:'Insurgentes' by Steven Wilson
Currently Eating: Chicken Crimpy Biscuits

Oh Graham - wishing you out of the hospital very soon. Richard is a comedy genius - so true!

Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch. “...the lecture he gave ... was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because “time is all you have…and you may find one day that you have less than you think”). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.”
Monday is Book Club day; Tuesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing almost 200 blog links and Cancer Resources with 230 referenced sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at
Take care, Dennis
