We spent the weekend with Ralph and Karen.
Ralph has made fantastic progress, since the diagnosis that he had throat cancer. The subsequent operation was a complete success. His only concern? That when they grafted part of his arm onto his throat as part of the reconstruction surgery, he now has a hairy throat whilst the new tissue ‘settles in’.
He’s so positive about things, and very matter-of-fact about the whole experience. Given that he’s never smoked, and doesn’t drink heavily, I’m sure he’d have every right to be playing the ‘why me?’ tape! – I’m a worse patient when I’ve got a simple cold!
Makes you think doesn’t it..? and put things in perspective!
Radio therapy now follows on 11 July.
Good luck Ralph!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
