Hanging up the boots

I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone who has been a part of this journey during the past two years while I have been in treatment.  I have been overwhelmed by the love and support from people, as well as the invaluable input that has gone in to nutting some issues out during this time.

At the end of this week, I will be archiving the text and videos, so the content will come down at this time.  My contact details remain mostly the same, though my mobile number has been transferred to the business, so will be answered by one of us during business hours.    

The current radiotherapy has been going well.  The picture below was taken about 4 weeks ago.  I am happy to say that the tumor has gone down by more than half with the combination of radiotherapy and a course of steroids.  I have lost all the hair in the treatment area which is permanent.  Great if you are a monk.  The staff at the cancer centre and haematology at Charlie’s have again been absolutely wonderful.  


It was one of those photos where I found it hard to crack a smile.

Aside from this, the plan for the future is to focus on some significant life changes, building healthy relationships and building a healthy body.  For all the things that I have written about that may give the impression I have handled things well, there have been many that I have not written about that I have handled very poorly.  If I seem removed from normal life for a time, it is for the purpose of rebuilding.

Once again, many thanks.
