A Very Bad Month

25 Sep

Hi everyone

The short version of the story is that I was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma after going for a private CT/MRI scan. The doctors prescribed a six-month R-CHOP treatment, thinking that I could go into hospital for each session and then go straight home. It didn’t work out that way. I collapsed during a chest x-ray, revealing the presence of a nasty chest infection as well as the lymphoma …

… Which meant I went straight into hospital for nearly a month, hence the lack of any updates or chapters.

I’ve got out of hospital now, but I’m feeling wretched. I don’t know when I’ll be able to get back to work, although I obviously want to get back to normal as quickly as possible.

I’d like to say a big thank you to all the people who emailed or PMed me, or who sent gifts and donations. I’ll try to answer each of those messages over the next few days, but right now I barely have the energy to do anything (a problem made worse by nasty side effects). But I’ll do my best.
