Euphoric

Take back anything i wrote yesterday, usual pesamistic panic..now have a whole 6 month..almost to relax pheww. Mr Kitchen confirmed he had been able to remove 1st m entirely..grade 1 only. And oncologist says other 2 are stable, so no gamma knife for now...yee ha! scan and check up in December then annually if no change.

Fasting bloods tomorrow and ecg on 11th..maybe i can do my own ecg..it is my job and the sullen practice nurse puts the electrodes in the wrong place!..shes not very good at removing clips either..gave up and i did them myself..as for bedside manor! I asked if she had ever seen a craniotomy before (or removed 42 clips in a head.."no" 

Treated myself to buying fruit in my old haunt at china town and lucifer biscuits for me..still cant taste much and another for mum, might cheer her up. also bought cardigan to add to my new wardrobe. 12 hr shift  tomorrow. 

11.30..cant sleep..mind spinning..so much for mum thinking im medically obsesed she has not only googled my 2 neuro drs but also my old GOS one Prof Hardisty and Prof Chessells now 80, same age as dad and treated me from 73 - 87. Luckily no photos as snow white still gives me the creeps!
