I started radiotherapy yesterday - so 2 down, 3 to go. Feel fine, not nauseous, not too tired. Procedure takes about 30 minutes from arrival to leaving.

Only side effect so far is that typing has become rather difficult, but probably more an effect of the tumour than the treatments. Obviously this makes it difficult to type this blog - but hey you'll just have to put up with mistakes and hopefully I can make myself understood.

So overall doing quite well. I had a couple of minor seizures last Saturday, the doctors upped the steroids and I've had no more since.

The house is coming into order and it's nice to be snuggled up in my room on my soft new bed.

My biggest stress is my inability to drive and the subsequent lose of my independence - it really is something I can not get use to, no matter how hard I try to rationalise it. It's also the main reason for my moods, but we battle on - or rather everyone else battles on. Am looking forward to the Olympics to keep my mind occupied.

Cheering you on also!

The Olympics will be a visual feast! But I do wish they would cease to state the obvious - we all know there is smog there, we can see it and don't need to be told a million times a day.
