This blog is like a bus - nothing for ages and then two posts come along at once! This one is especially for Mummy Pink :-D
Today's update is that the Marsden called to say that, having discussed me with the top consultant for Head and Neck Cancer, there is no point in doing a scan as anything I did have would be too microscopic to be picked up and anyway, they are certain I am in remission and that the surgery got rid of everything with the radiotherapy as the insurance policy to pick up any stray cells (hell of an insurance policy!!). Again, I feel as if I should feel some positive emotion but can't seem to find that reaction. I am still thinking that it will be worth talking to the consultant about being referred for a PET CT scan, which would pick up anything microscopic and would give us peace of mind. I will need to think about why I feel like this - just as well I am seeing the psychologist next week so I can talk through this with her!
In other news, my Yorkshire Parkin turned out lovely and I am looking forward to trying Nigella's chocolate fudge cake recipe, even though I am not fond of chocolate cake myself! Thank you for the book recommendation too - I need to go hunting on Amazon- wonder if there's a Kindle edition :-)
Thank you for your support and comments - as always, they help us deal with what's going on as we try to process this latest news and what it means for our reactions and plans. And special thanks for my lovely husband and children for their unfailing support and love.
