Learning the art of patience.

Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.

Cosmic mapsHello friends

I hope all is good with you.

Today didn’t go exactly as I had prepared for.  I had an appointment with a consultant at the hospital and I was expecting to be told the specifics of my cancer diagnosis and, more importantly for me, the treatment plan, but it didn’t work out like that.

The results of the CT scan I had on Friday were not available and the blood samples I had taken last week now have to be sent to another hospital for more rigorous testing. This means that my case will not be discussed at the Multi-Disciplinary team meeting tomorrow so no treatment plan will be drawn up this week.  IF everything can be sorted out by Friday of this week then I can be discussed as the MDT meeting next Tuesday so I now have an appointment to see the consultant again on Wednesday 7 October.

I have to be honest I felt a bit let down.  I do understand that the treatment has to be specific to the type and stage of my cancer and a few more days delay won’t affect the outcome, but I, of course, am anxious to get this show on the road and to start fighting…

Still there is good news – I am still feeling well and the tumour doesn’t feel quite so uncomfortable now.  On top of that over the past few days I have become an expert in making fruit and veg smoothies and in cooking up batches of soup.  This probably doesn’t sound a big deal to you but it’s a whole new world to me.

Anyway it’s all out of my hands so I am just going to have to be patient for a while longer.

The image above is from a little book I have been working on that I am calling The Little Book of Cosmic Maps.

See you soon

Big love

AJ 🙂
