Good news Torch, hope you have Sky TV?
Well, for the Final anyhow.
Let out Sunday night at 9pm. Feel shit because of the chemo but great to be home. Having three appointments a week at Warwick who will give blood transfusions if necessary.
Went to see Mr Big at Heartlands on Monday. Plan is to stay at home? Build ip my strength and weight - lost another stone in five days - then have transplant.
My plan is to start playing records tomorrow and start getting dressed by Sunday.
Look on the bright side Torchy. You could have been at the Ricoh last night.
Keep the faith and enjoy that Dominos pizza.
It could be worse, we could be Villa fans
Good to hear you're going to stick on some vinyl. Build up your strength by playing air guitar and get your wife's hairbrush for a mike but take it easy on those guitar breaks and high notes.
All the best fella.
Yesterday's devastating news somehow got my brain thinking about those I 'know' who are suffering and reminded me of this thread. So in bed last night I read through the most recent updates and it was bloody delighted with the positive outcome. So glad you had less time in hospital than you thought Torch & that the results came back positive. As others have mentioned, there will be some tough times ahead but you've got the hardest parts out the way. Stay strong mate, the way you have dealt with your impossibly difficult task has been remarkable. Let's hope we win at Wembley to give you something positive to remember from an unbelievably challenging period in your life. PUSB
I'm back in hospital unfortunately. Started to feel unwell on Wednesday and by late afternoon had a high temp. They give you a number to ring if this happens, so I rang and they told me to go to Walsgrave A&E. That was late Wednesday evening. Since then they have been pumping me full of different types of antibiotics. Turns out i have a bug in my Hickman line. Hopefully I won't be in for too long.
sorry to hear that mate but I think a few set backs along the way are inevitable unfortunately.
Keep your spirits up best you can and hopefully like you say, you won't be in too long.
Good luck Torch - I had an infection that had gone to my blood following an ankle break a few years back and they did the same to me with a cocktail of antibiotics. Since then, no flu or anything and good health - hopefully the same for you. The flip side is that I'm concerned if I ever get ill now it's curtains and there's nothing they'll be able to do for me! :-)
You're in the best of hands, Torch. Best to be in hospital and get it sorted asap.
Hope you're out again soon and in better health.
Argh. I've just googled Hickman line - I wish I hadn't! I'm scared of even having blood tests. I suppose chucking a bit of domestos down it is a non-starter then?!
Sorry to hear you're not well again Torchy - hope you're back out soon.
Had to google it too, duffer, as I thought it was a song by Glen Campbell!
That's a tough break for you, Torchy. At least you are in the best place at the moment. Just keep doing what they say - they really do know best. Keep your chin up.
Sorry torch stay strong
