17 December - the best Christmas present

Yesterday we called the hospital to see if we could get the results of my MRI scan. We were told that the scan needed to be discussed with doctors in Newcastle. We thought that probably wouldn't happen until the new year now so we resigned ourselves to having to be patient. But this afternoon I received a call from the consultant oncologist in Carlisle. He informed me that the result was much better. No new growth of the tumour!

As you may guess I am pretty pleased about that. The news is the best Christmas present I could have wished for.

Happy Christmas!
