    Hi, Nerys.
    I just caught my thumb on a rose bush the next thing my hand looked like a blown up rubber glove ๐Ÿ˜ญ due to my immune system being dodgy at the time ,all better now though and only a few treatments to go with the numbers starting to go in the right direction .
    Are you keeping well? And did you get your mobile command centre finished?
    Cheers Marky

    Sorry about the long delay in replying, just after reporting back for duty I caught a bit of a infection would you believe from a rose thorn ,so back into hospital for more pandering. That's me up and about again avoiding anything sharp , quite hard to do things wrapped up in bubble wrap ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ, have been giving the workshop a bit of a much needed clean ready for the next project.
    Hope everyone is keeping well .

    Thanks for all the well wishes , Nerys the bed was surprisingly comfy it had an air mattress that formed round your body something to do with pressure points and I assume the food was fine the treatment made me lose my sense of taste so basically just shoveling food in to keep my strength up.

    Hi Nerys ,hope your keeping well ,yes I noticed the Prince of Wales had closed down along with a few others that the Good lady and I have used in the past ,its a shame they were Good affordable accommodation.
    Even though the restrictions have been eased here in Scotland I'm still very much shielding just can't take any chances .

    Stay safe Cheers Mark

    Thanks Colin , After nearly a couple of months in and out of hospital ,the visit up to my sons did me the world of good also got to see my new granddaughter for the First time ,my wife had been up just after she was born but I wasn't allowed to go and no one was allowed into the hospital due to my immune system being really low ,a couple of jags in my stomach each day for the duration sorted that out.

    As restrictions start to lift faster than expected here in Bonnie Scotland (there's an election coming up ) ,what pops through the door this morning a letter from the Scottish government telling me I should be shielding! Well just a year to late but I suppose their hearts in the right place ,and another letter telling me I can go back to work even though I'm retired.

    Cheers (from a very confused )Marky๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Martin , this chemo seems a bit stronger than the lot three years ago its taking a week to ten days to feel like myself again , its a three week cycle so back to hospital on Monday ,but I know what to expect this time round.
    Like yourself I'm not doing much building at the moment ,I'm going to have a wee try at water colour painting ๐ŸŽจ ๐Ÿคฃ.

    Quick post ,After having not felt like doing anything for the past few weeks .Did some catching up on the site and am very saddened to see Martin has left for personal reasons ,hopefully to return in the near future, if anyone still keeps in contact please pass on my best wishes .
    That's all for now ,popping down to the quacks for bloods before I start a new series of chemotherapy on Monday ,10 sessions 1 every 3 weeks so that's my calendar taken up for most of the year .

    Stay safe and look after yourselves ,will pop on now and again when I'm not barfing into a bucket .
    Cheers Marky

    Just thought I'd check in to assure you that I haven't fallen off the mortal coil yet , they took me off my treatment (wasn't working) so that I can be put onto a trial drug ๐Ÿคž,you have to have all the previous drug out your system so have been suffering from withdrawal symptoms ,so my latest cancer treatment till I get onto the trial is 8 paracetamol a day.

    Glad your getting the jag (jab)would have thought Alice would have got it at the same time as with the flu jag , my brother and my sister in law both got theirs at the same time as her mum and dad as they are their carers ,so obviously different parts of the country view it differently .

    Hi Nerys ,maybe it was to see if I was immune to hospital food๐Ÿ˜ which in fact was really good ,joking aside I just think they were being slightly over cautious it didn't matter if I said I was feeling fine they would do another type of test.
