what the oncologist said part III

Wednesday morning marked the end of radiotherapy with a visit to see my oncologist. He was pleased with the fact that I am so sensitive to rt adding that it's a bloody good job we didn't go for combined chemo too! I'd have been far more ill if I had. He also said that the reduced pain in my shoulder was a really good sign, but we won't know anything until the next scan. That's 8 weeks off, due to the swelling the rt causes.

So it's a case of get better each day until I can swim and ride again, and write that blasted novel!

Good news on the translation front too. Despite being finished at midnight on Sunday by a very queasy, writhing translator, and finding typos on the Monday morning (therefore having to correct and re-send)... it was accepted and they are really pleased with the work. I'll have another piece to add to my writing cv, albeit another weird addition!

Well - am a bit knackered now - lots of visitors and lovely phone calls - so going to get off and rest (more bloody rest!!!).

Kitten is growing fast and still adorable - will post some pics asap.

Medics are weird, aren't they? 'Oooh you've been really ill have you? Marvellous!' All sounds good, though. Hope the queasiness is abating now.

It sounds like you're getting back on that horse.

Has JJ been eating kittens again? Sorry I haven't been about, glad to hear you're feeling a bit more feisty!

Oncologist - they certainly have some names in the medical world. I've been telling one of my writing classes about your blog and how inspiring you are.

I'm glad you're feeling better. The first whisper in the ether (BestRank) sounds interesting. And translating too. Sounds like the world is bringing the track to you.

All the best
