Great therapy, Torch!!! Completely agree.
Good for you mate. Great therapy and something to take your mind of things.
Got me thinking and reminiscing. 60s spy series. Man from Uncle or The Saint, The Persuaders.
Showing my age.
I love them all. The Saint, Man In a Suitcase, Uncle, the Silencers, Department S...
I'm really glad that the future is looking a little brighter for you, Torchy. This time next year you could be 100% healthy and in despair about the prospects for the Sky Blues.
Check this out.
Green hornet. Forgot all about him. Some classic tunes on this complilation. Wish I had written some of them.
A lot of the classic themes (Persuaders, Ipcress File), etc use an instrument called a Zither, sometimes known as a cimbalom. The soundtrack to the Guy Ritchie version of U.N.C.L.E was great and used that instrument a lot, to get the "mood" of the original series. Worth a listen.
Fantastic news, Torch.
Won't it be great when your wife is telling everyone it was just a bad case of man flu all along and you can play along?
Keep the faith and remember to take good care of yourself.
Eh? No! I will miss it in a way, it's been very useful over the last few months. "Can you make me a cup of tea, love and get me a hot crossed bun? I would get it but I have cancer.", "could you please go and get me a Dominos pizza? I would do it but I have leukemia".
Works every time. You've got to use these things to your advantage whilst you can!
This always sounded like cold war spy music to me.

Just got back in hospital. Second round of chemo starts tonight. Not as strong, so hope to recover and get home quicker this time. My aim is to be out in under 4 weeks rather than 6. Just need to avoid infection.
In time for Wembley that is?
good luck torch. you can do this
Yeah, much better than my 'hey, can you go and put the bins out. I have trapped wind.'
good luck Torch, hope all goes well.
Good luck torch p.u.s.b
All the best mate
Hope everything is going OK mate, great news BTW
This all sounds very positive. Get yourself sorted in time for the takeover champions league and relocation back to Highfield Road..... yes I am receiving treatment too but it's my head that's gone!
All the best torch
Told today once my last round of chemo ends on Sunday evening I can go home. Hopefully be at home until mid April.
Sickness and nausea from chemo has kicked in straightaway this time, which is a shame but only to be expected.
Good news about going home again.
Seems to be less than you thought before
Great news that the chemo is now out of the way.
You can now go into Sunday knowing it's the final time.
Keep going, Torch.
Good to hear. The worst is now behind you, fingers crossed.
Keep your loved ones close and enjoy some Spring air. Might help with the nausea.
Go for it Torch!
How long till the Bone Marrow transplant?
Did you produce any Musical masterpieces in the downtime? :-)
Mid to late April, so not too long.
No feel too ill. Will do that at home when nausea and sickness has passed.
Then what is the regimen after that torch?
Hopefully transplant is a success and i spend summer recovering. Consultant said if everything goes to plan then i should be fine by October/November time. Cured.
Amen to that! :-)

Have work just let your work pile up on the desk for a big welcome back?
