thanks to everybody the weather was (sort of) cooperating.
We were on the morning ferry (the afternoon one was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions) and had some rollercoaster flights but managed to get to Manchester without major delays.
The good news: there is a very good chance to kill the beast (the bone met on the rib) with the radiotherapy which is due to start next Monday!
Apart from this there is just one suspicious node which will be monitored in future with quarterly CT scans. It showed up on the PET scan (not very bright though) but might have been due to an infection, so according to the Professor this is not too much of a worry just now.
The bad news: all that travelling has taken it's toll... so the pain which was under good control flared up after coming home so we had to increase the medication for the moment. Especially the journey home was a long one... got up at 4 a.m. and arrived home at 6 p.m. so even for a healthy person that's some journey.
It is as if this "thing" knew that we are going to fight it next week and it's showing it's teeth for the last time.
