Glad to hear that everything is a go for your second round of your Oxi?xeloda, hope it all goes well. And that is a mad amount of money to be asked to pay to have these tests done! Hope that Kris's suggestion is something that you could look at as that sounds much more affordable.
My dad also got the flu shot, recommended by his medical team. Here's a few links for you regarding flu and cancer.

My dad also got a pneumococcal jab one year too along side his flu jab. He got them both at the same time, one jab in each arm!
