Finally some better news !

Hello to you all that have been tuning in, I had a good day yesterday (thurs 26th).

Firstly I had my 3 CT scans (chest, abdominal & hip) at midday at Frankston private. A short time later I had my appointment with Dr. Ganju.

He had results from the brain MRI I had on Monday, it showed that the tumours had decreased in size due to the brain radiotherapy I had around 8 weeks ago ! This is very happy news to hear after so much negative sounding news in recent weeks.

The next positive to occur was the fact that I will be commencing my medication called SUTENT some time today, just waiting to hear from the pharmacy.

I hope this will commence further decreasing of tumours that are hiding in certain spots in my body.

On other good matters – I had a short rehearsal here at home last night with Ian, Ree &  Tim (Holycow). We have a gig this Sunday at the Heritage in Balnarring, 3- 6pm. Im very much looking forward to this, please attend if anyone can.
