No good news but remain positive

Hi All, it’s been a while since my last blog, mainly because i have not had any good news to share. My cancer cell counts continue to rise, they delayed my Chemo by a week as my blood tests were no good, and generally I have not been feeling the best. I am back on Chemo again and had a CT scan a couple of days ago. Hopefully this will give us some insight into why my cancer cell counts have been increasing. So not expecting very good results from my next appointment with Dr K.  At the end of the day I just want to know so I can plan my next attack strategy to beat this terrible disease. I have a feeling the cancer is getting the better of my current chemo. It maybe I will be seeing my secret weapon down in Melbourne quicker than expected. Mentally I admit I have been struggling but managing to keep on top of it. Meghan has been my rock, and has had to console me at times when I have just needed to let it all out. I am not scared of dying, but I am enjoying my life (apart from the obvious). Work is great and achieving most of what I set out to do here in Darwin. Family life is fantastic and that is why I worry so much. I don’t want to leave Meghan and Sam for a long time yet.

I will update everyone after my next Doctor’s appointment on the 30th of November.

Wish me luck.
