Many of you will have noticed that I have not posed a diary blog for several weeks. This failure has been for many reasons most of them relating to health problems/events such as:

  • Very Low blood count
  • Blood Transfusion of 3 units
  • Very Low blood count
  • Blood Transfusion of 3 units
  • Extreme Fatigue
  • Bad Fall (unconscious and confused)
  • Significant reduction in muscle strength (unable to climb the stairs even with use of crurthTotal 
  • Loss of mobility
  • Loss of Confidence
  • Stair Lift, GT II with “go faster stripes” and spooked wheels.

Because of these events that affect my lifestyle I have decided to change the way I communicate will you. These changes include only reporting mine and Janice’s health changes and significant medication changes relating to myself. Several of you who read my blog are family and very good friends which we know were upset by our unavailability to see them. Not added to the list was the subscription of the Drug Abiraterone which I have been taking for the last three days. The medication comprises 4 large pills of 250 mg each to be taken at the same time each day. Even though this is reportedly a wonder drug I am not being too optimistic. Instead I am going to wait and see if it dose change things in a positive way and I hope I do not have to wait to long. The letter indication that I have been allocated the drug on compassionate grounds brought tears to my eyes as well as a feeling of high spirits and optimism. Janice also had the same feelings I did but I didn’t expect the drug (if at all) until December at the earliest.
