So….starting radiotherapy tomorrow and feeling good. Upbeat that the process will be positive and cure the cancer. Prepared well I think with the massive help of my wife, Alison. Food in the freezer although more to do there. Creams, lotions and other needed accoutrements are in place. Not going to kid myself that this will be an easy ride but have people who are willing to help. My greatest worries are for Ali and the children…I at least have some control over my treatment. I am sure they will all be fine and my noddy worries are for nowt. I know the rest of the family will rally around. It was brilliant to see my mum and dad recently…never see them enough.
Tomorrow has seemed a long time coming. The experience of the hospital has been odd. With such a lot of visits and treatment I have gained an interesting insight into the NHS. The people who have cared for me, treated me, consulted and so on have been excellent. You can really tell why they do what they do for a job. The communication between departments, ambulances, admissions, secretaries and re eptionists is abysmal. There is a large management role there for someone. If I was not in Education it would be the place to work.
I will post again tomorrow after first treatment.
