Well, that BEAR  will win today but the future is well, as usual.
Say hi for your mum for me.

Hi Percy,

Things didn't seem too good at half time today, down by 7 but hey, it's only half time!! Always the Bear optimist here!!! They ain't showing the game live here in the UK tonight, we have the Ravens at the Redskins. Good game and that RG3 is pretty exciting!

For sure i will say hi to my mum from you. She finished her last 7 day course of Preds and Amoxycillin last Wednesday but had to go back on them again on Friday, quite badly breathless lots of the time.

You take care and Go Bears!

Thanks for the link, Gavin.  I am anxiously awaiting the outcome of the BILCAP trial (UK)  It will be the first study proving or disproving the benefit of adjuvant therapy with Xeloda.  Unfortunately we will have to wait until 2014.

Indeed Marion and hopefully much good will come from it. But 2014, grrrr.....  Maybe Helen will have some contact with the bilcap team before then, I think she had a meeting with the team running the trial earlier this year. The waiting albeit necessary does my head in!

And Lainy, Pack, hmmmm......... Looking forward to Sunday here!!!
