Good one Gavin. I can print it out and use it to explain why we aren't doing specific things for Mark that people it out lives expect to be done....such as why we aren't using specific nausea meds when he is only at a low-moderate risk for nausea and why no PET scans since he has technically had had his first line treatment (surgery).

Thanks.
Glad you didn't get blown away by the storm.

Glad it was of use and interest to you all, and of course, you are all most welcome. Heard today that my application to get gas central heating installed in the flat has been successful! No more freezing during the long winters anymore and I am well chuffed indeed! Got told as well that it's getting installed in the next couple of weeks so now got a mad dash on to get the decorating finished in time for the installers to get to work. Sooo looking forward to getting back to normal with the flat and being able to spend a bit more time on here as well. 2 weeks max I think. Just got the living room to finish and some other small fiddly jobs to do, new lights, sockets, switches throughout and fix the damp in the kitchen ceiling, and one troublesome wall in the bedroom to paper then paint. The end is in sight, I think!!! lol! smile

Hugs,

Gavin
