We are top of the league, we are, we are top of the league!!
By the votes on the poll (below right) only me and Pete have voted and I'm obviously correct in assuming Newcastle will finish highest. Rob, I'm sorry I couldn't include Sheff Wed but they're in the 6th division or something aren't they.
Been on a wee holiday at the Royal Marsden since Wed. Popped along for my stem cell blood test and they admitted me due to an infection in my arm from when I last had chemo and put me on IV antibiotics.
The upside was that I would have had to drive back on Thur anyway and on Thur my stem cell count was high enough for harvesting, so on the machine I went (after they tried 6 times to get a bloody great needle into my infected arm). Spent 4 hours praying they would collect enough that I wouldnt have to be harvested on Friday as well. This meant collecting more than they did on each of the previous two occassions. They were looking for a total count of 4 ( 4 what I have no idea - I presume its not 4 stem cells?). We ended up with 3.86 which I convinced them with a bit of aritmetic rounding was near enough!
Had to have a platelet and red cell transfusion on Thursday evening to cope with the pending visit of my boss on Friday morning (only joking Chris). Hoped they'd let me out on Fri but my temperature was still a bit high and they wanted to re-check my blood count. I turned up the air-con to max and low and behold my temperature had dropped by Sat morning and I was finally given parole and allowed home.
.....and the Toon walloped Bolton on Sat. Did I mention who is top of the league....?!?! Ted, whose that at the bottom??
