Thank you all so much for reading this blog. And also the kind comments and messages I have received. I never imagined it would get such a good response and it’s been very humbling. I’m still waiting for that call from ‘Loose Women.’ I don’t want this blog to be gloomy so before I talk about more cancer related things I thought I would do a very short post about someone that has become a huge part of my life this year. His name is Archie, and he is a French Bull Dog. I’m now one of those really annoying ‘dog people’ that always post pictures of their dog, but that’s better than what I’m having for dinner! I’ve always wanted a dog but I have always been too busy, until now! Since I’m unable to train at the moment, which drives myself and everyone else around me up the wall, going for daily walks with him is the closest I get to any form of exercise. He is the perfect companion, never minds taking the blame for someone else’s fart, super chilled and puts a smile on everyone’s face. So here is to my new best mate and furry fart machine, Archie!
Lastly this year will be the first time in about 7 years I won’t be taking part in Movember. This is a charity that raises awareness and money for male cancers during November through the medium of facial hair! All the years I have participated and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be affected by cancer. My hair did grow back due to the operation causing a break in chemo, however when chemo restarted and November approached my moustache yet again started relocating itself off my upper lip and into my mouth. So, I am urging all men (and any hairy women) that can take part in the event to grow a moustache. Likewise everyone who can to donate as little, or as much as they want to the charity. It’s a great bit of fun, but it also helps raise a lot of awareness and money for research, and supporting those affected by it.
Again, a very big thanks for all the support I have received, it means a huge amount! The next posts will continue to be about my treatment, including radiotherapy, chemotherapy and the operation. Hopefully I haven’t used up all my writing skills and funnies yet….
