I went for an MR scan last week. It was fairly routine as I am not one of the claustrophobic types. I did have a slight issue concerning the vein catheter. I now have a multicoloured bruise on my arm.
After a few days of anxious waiting, I got to see the oncologist, who gave me the reassuring news that there have been no detectable tumour developments inside my head. So, we opened a bottle of bubbly in the evening and relaxed. It seems that I am coping quite well with the treatment and all that goes with it:
Surgery – done
Radiotherapy – done
Chemotherapy part 1 – done
Chemotherapy part 2 – done
Electromagnetic fields – ongoing
I have no picture to show the inside of my head. Instead, here is a photo that I took of the volcano, Mt Rainier, as I flew into Seattle a few years ago. A suitable caption should refer to the colours being a representation of the bruise on my arm and the blue sky as a sign of a bright future. Or simply a reference to the ELO song, “Mr Blue Sky”
