A Man With a Plan

My New Life Journey

 

Day 3 A.D. (After Diagnosis)

 

I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the many messages of support and good wishes I have received from a whole host of people. I've had messages from people who I haven't seen in years, from people who I've never met, from colleagues old and new and of course from my close friends and family.

Every single message has been read and re-read a number of times, each message and gesture of goodwill, every little emoji and smiley face gives me strength and hope in these new topsy-turvy days. 🙃

I am truly very appreciative for every message and I thank you all for your kind thoughts and words. I will try to thank each person personally as soon as I can.

I have been given a date for my first scan, an MRI. It will be on Saturday at 1800 at the RSCH. I'm trying not to think too much about the MRI, whilst I'm pleased that things are moving forward and I can begin my treatment, I'm also filled with a sense of trepidation about the outcome. In the meantime I have another appointment with my GP and I'll be trying to keep busy and occupy myself for the remainder of the week. I have a plan to take my drone out at some point as I want to get a particular photograph from it.

It's also Pride Day on Saturday so rather than battle through the hoards of revellers who will be in town, I'll make a day of it. I shall probably go and take some photographs of the parade and the participants and then wander around town for a few hours hopefully getting some good shots. I'll meet up with Tina for a light snack and then we can make our way to RSCH when we're ready. A man with a plan.

 

I have several scans ans test lined up after the MRI. Ther is a CT scan followed by an ultrasound and biopsy of the swollen lymph nodes in my neck and the last scan before any treatment can begin will be the biopsy of my throat. This is undertaken under a general aneasthetic.

This was the first photo I took at the Brighton Pride Festival
