So it’s currently quite confusing (understatement) I’m possibly re-cancerous but after a CT scan, PET scan and a needle biopsy there was no conclusions and I needed another bigger biopsy. 

Originally told that it would be on Monday or sooner if they had space, rang the Thursday before – I wasn’t on the list for Monday! And then I was… So went in for pre assessment last Friday which included going down into the hospital depths to the blood taking room as the oncology one wasn’t open.

 It operated with an actual supermarket counter ticket system and a female and male voice which shouted which ‘booth’ was free when the number changed. I would have called them cubicles and why did they need a name? You couldn’t really work out which number booth was which anyway as the numbers were behind the curtains. The voices pronounced booth with an RP extended “boooothee”. Very Paul Temple and Steve!

It has actually been a year and 17 days since the last cheem. I had to look it up. Glad no one else remembered these things ‘cos wooha, awkward. So this time it’s different. Easier but harder too. Last time I facebooked everyone and lost people that way. This time I’m going for minimal. So day after biopsy – Sis1 came home last night, Sis2 went to Reading fest for the day today and we went on a walk with Date and L and the pupster. Hardly any blackberries to be had on the downs which had been the whole point. Before we left, had rang nurse specialist to see where d’at with Edinburgh and rang her back. Treatment is R-ICE (vanilla ice soundtrack) and Edinburgh is set for the 15th. At least this time, it’s not gunna effect the fingers with neuropathy! Watched a long way down – ‘fun’ film about suicide! Cheery for the relapsed and anorexic (Sis1)
