We are as prepared as we can be.
Some loose ends tied up....Framed print delivered for a photograhic exhibition at Linacre College, which opens tomorrow; last piece of work for Guernsey finished and signed off; stocked up on essentials, including factor 50 sun screen and anti diarrhoea medication to deal with two of the most common side effects of the treatment Steve is due to start today, as well as more large candles in case of power cuts due to flooding, which the Environment Agency says might happen later today. Wellies and sand bags are at the ready!
We spent the day in Bristol yesterday, visiting Steve's mum now into her second week of hospitalisation and catching up with our son for the first time in 2014. We also spent a wonderful evening on Saturday having a meal with friends Richard and Mary, Anne and Colin. Good food and wine, and excellent company!
Not sure when we will be able to do that again. It all depends on how Steve reacts to the trial drugs. Time will tell.
As we set out into the unknown in a couple of hours, others will be celebrating the life of meso warrior Jan whose journey ended too soon. We send our love to Gary and Jan's family and friends.
And now it's time for us to get ready for the next stage of Steve's journey. When I write again, the first dose of trial drug will have been given and we'll be off....here we go again!
Last but not least, thank you so much for all the messages of support. It really is appreciated. Very, very much xx
