Hoping to help - Update

Continuing good news.

I still cannot believe that I am clear of the disease but all the indicators are negative and everyone is telling me how much better I appear (the suntan helps). I feel so lucky but so much credit must go to the Doctors and Nurses that have looked after me over the last year. I will always be indebted to them. When our NHS gets so many (mainly undeserved) knocks these days I cannot praise them enough for their care and support.

In line with the FLAIR trial I have now had a CT scan and a Bone Marrow Aspirate and Trephine. I am still feeling a bit bruised from the the procedure! We will now wait for the results of these tests.

It is only 3 weeks now to my Charity Walk and I am a little apprehensive. Recent practice walks have left me a little more tired than expected, I am obviously not as fit as I need to be. I had better step up a level.

Thanks so much for the update, Christopher.

It's great to hear that you're feeling so good. Long may that continue to be the case! The walk will be tough but you've been through much tougher in recent times and your determination to succeed is clear. Take it one step at a time and remember that it's not a race.

Stay in touch and all the best with your bone marrow aspirate results.
