A bit of good news

Today I got the results of my CT scan.
They are good results to get.

The tumour has responded very well to the chemo. It has reduced in size to the point that Bart, my surgeon,  is happy to operate to remove it.
That is great news, and was the reason why I posted on FB about riding this morning with a smile on my face.

I must of looked like I was on something, chugging along with a big grin on my face. 
Joh is happy, and the kids are too. Happy days. 
I'm in Stepping Hill tomorrow to have a chat with Bart about the next step, which is THE OPERATION. 

If you're interested, here's a simple youtube video of what happens next, it's not gory or anything so don't worry :) 

At the moment, that's scheduled for 22nd March. 

In the meantime, and as something to look forward to, Alan, from Polocini coffee shop, has kindly asked if I'd like to go to Belgium with him and Richard to ride the famous cobbles, eat frites and mayo, drink Belgium beer and visit the museum. Er, yes please. Whether I could go though was dependant on my surgeon, who's Belgium, and said yes, as long as I drink his favourite beer while I'm there. Result. 
That's what I'm doing this weekend. 
I'll let you know how I get on xx

Joh's just come back with a bottle of bubbly! Celebration time :) xx
