just aquick update on the treatment.this week sees the start of my 3rd week of radiotherapy. so far no loss of hair.nurses told me if it was going to fall out it should have fallen out last week. so still have my long dark locks of hair.i havnt had a haircut since December 2011.id be a liar to say it has been OK. it hasn't.the radiotherapy knocks you for 6. ive lost my appetite bit,which is unusual for me. Ive had a few bad days but you have to plougho n thru thick and thin.with the weather getting warmer and signs of flowers popping up all over summer and spring is coming.
thanks for the birthday wishesvlastweek. i had a great day thanks while at home we received a call to tell us treatment had to be put back a week. starting 23rd Feb until 4th April now.

Tomorrow isn't the end its just the beginning.Pain is temporary quitting lasts forever.see you all soon wiTh or without hair.

fiona-i was at the rvi yesterday giving blood.on the subject of where the right side of my skull is. i assume its been stored away securely.I'm either going to get a titanium plate put in. or a plastic mould of my skil put in.
personally i don't mind which.i know I'm going to have a belt er of a scar.
Mandie-Sorry no haweswater half this year.hopefully next year
