18 September - MRI scan

To the hospital in Carlisle this afternoon for the long-awaited MRI scan of my brain. Half an hour of listening to clonks and buzzes from the scanner.

I'm told that the results will get back to the requesting doctor in about a week.So it will be several more days of anxious waiting before I find out what the next steps will be.

In the meantime I'm quite comfortable on 8mg of dexamethasone steroids. But Olga is worried about my right eye which is very red. That's the same side as my tumour. Coincidence or not? Steroids and clomipramine can both cause increased pressure in the eyes, apparently. If it isn't one thing, it's another.
