He's coming home...!!!

Well, a bit of a surprise. The doc came to see me this morning, confirmed my blood counts had risen again and then he casually mentioned I can go home today!! They must need the bed or something!

Have felt much better over the past couple of days. The Urology consultant came to see me yesterday - he was surprised to see me looking so well - it's not normal. He'll arrange tumour marker and CT scan tests over the next couple of weeks before assessing the next step.

Here's a pic of my humble abode. I gave myself a no.2 trim yesterday as my hair started coming out in clumps. Not a problem if I missed a bit with the clippers - I simply pulled out the offending hair and voila!

I can't say I'll be sad to leave but the room has been fine, the nurses have been great, the foods been OK(ish) and the chemo bearable. I'll take that!

Gonna feel a bit funny being back at home. Michelle has a stinking cold so I guess I'l be in the spare room tonight - not that I have the energy for anything else!

Nice one Nige, great to hear that you've been allowed back home and it sounds like it's going well.

On the topic of your picture, you look a hell of a lot like Geoff Thomas! Can we expect to see you doing the tour next summer? I'll join you!!

Good to see you last week Nige and thanks to you for the tea and to Lauren for the cake. How did she manage to sell YOU of all people two 1p cakes for 5p?

I trust you are enjoying having the folks around this week and that my sore throat remained in the far flung corner of the kitchen.

I reckon you should retrain as an oncologist after this, sounds like they need some decent ones!!

Cheers and chives.

You can treat cancer with Flavonoids!

It's easy, cheap and effective.

Hello.

I want your opinion on this.

Flavonoids are compounds that come from fruits and vegetables. They work against cancer cells. Now there is a site that teaches how to use flavonoids against cancer.

Tell me what you think of it. Click on this message to visit the site.

Please blog about it.

Thanks.

This is a very informative blog – one of the best of its kind. I have gone through all the posts but I have some doubts about some thing. Updates of this blogs are rare. Since blog needs latest info, I humly request the blog master to update this blog when ever gets time.
All other aspects are really Great. I have some own blogs in this subject – on malignancy and malignant cancers or tumors - I shall link this blog from them. I think this blog needs that as this is very informative.
And about complete cure of Cancers and malignant tumors I was simply wondering why common men like me and you can work for this/in this direction? It may be scientist’s subject, but I think we too can provide good contribution to this subject... I could see an informative guide on malignant cancers and the cure of cancer etc from following URL
