A little colour
We have decided that I am not depressed just anxious and as she said it was no wonder with all that is going on.
The numb fingers every morning appear to be a result of carpal tunnel trouble and in both hands which isn't good. I have to wear hand splints at night and in the day if it is too painful.The knees? She did ask do I want to see the rheumatologist but as she said "I don't suppose you want to be going for operations at the moment" Quite right . So some painkillers to try initially and try to lose a little more weight.
I'm not having any medication for the anxiety or counselling, again a joint decision. I'm going to try to meditate more regularly and see if that helps.
I've to go back in 4 weeks for progress report but with the proviso I can make an immediate appointment if things worsen.
Then when we got home there was a telephone call from the trials nurse. Mr Mog has been accepted on the millennium drug trial. Back to hospital, again, Tuesday for more bloods to begin the trial and then hour and half later appointment with oncologist and the first lot of drugs. I really don't know whether to be pleased or not. I'm apprehensive as it is an unknown and he is relatively well at the moment.
But he is trying the drugs and we will see how they go. Or should I say he is trying a steroid plus a 50% chance of the new drug.
Time will tell.
And you? How has your day been so far?
Oh and on another note. The new ISP - router arrived yesterday and we followed instructions on the box, up and running in 5 minutes and nearly 50% faster than Virgin was.
