    I don't know what to say Peter, but I'm glad it doesn't hurt.

    I feel fine with no real symptoms worth mentioning, just tiredness from the chemo.
    Damn! Sorry to hear that.

    Great to hear, Peter. Too bad you didnít have access to top-flight medical care like in the USA. Our guys could have made a packet off you, and you might have got reasonably well too.

    It really is good to hear, and I usually enjoy your posts.

    Awesome!! Glad to hear you are doing great.

    Chemo brain is weird. I finished in mid-June and suddenly have more motivation. I worked on a canoe today ��. I can’t feel my fingers and feet, but am hopeful they come around soon. No neuropathy, Peter?

    No physical symptoms at all, the new growths are still pretty small. The only real change is that my head is full of song lyrics and I sing all the time .

    Singing is good. I have probably been doing more of that too. Road rage increased. Oh well.

    Thanks. I have a good group of local people here and we often compare notes on treatment and have coffee.

    Like you, I have a wonderful medical team. I probably needed to meet these people.

    So - the twist is that you've got such a supple wrist?

    BTW - I have songs stuck in my head all the time - at least yours is a decent one.

    I have an internal jukebox that plays a lot of the time, often songs I hate, that I've not thought of for years: like 20 or 30.

    Never considered it a symptom. I also see faces in the lino and the carpet.

    In any event, best wishes from me and the pack.

    Yesterday I said to a friend "I wish I was the praying type". That was about the boys in the cave in Thailand. Not saying, but feeling it again now. About you. Please, let the chemo do its job good and proper. And, please, let the symptoms stay out of the picture.

    Bobby's post re "when you start singing ...im yer uncle ernie" reminded me of this:

    Thanks everyone, I tend to be pretty positive, I'd worry but I forget to ..... apart from an underlying awareness, a bit of a faint shadow. That aside I'm just trying to get my JIM finished !
