It’s the most wonderful time of the year

Some days, all the parking spots are close to the door, all the elevator doors open when the button is pushed, and all the brain scans are tumour-free.

And that was our December 23.

I still have tumours, in all the old familiar places, and there are plans to deal with them in 2015. However, most of my attention has been focussed on a recent MRI of my brain. On Tuesday, my doctor gave me the results. It’s called a “clear scan”, and it’s been awhile since I’ve had one of those. The disease off my brain is a load off my mind.

This means our Christmas can be about gratitude for the present and genuine hope for the future.

I can even picture conversing with Scrooge’s third ghost.

Merry Christmas everyone, from Robin, Will and myself.

  3. Hi Mike. Thanks for this romp of a blog from a journey that is clearly no romp. Found it and read all the entries in one sitting. On the topic of side-effects (April 2014,), have you had occasion to try good ole’ castor oil packs for constipation? Here in the land of Edgar Cayce (Virginia), I’ve heard of it. Just a thought… Sending warmth and good healing energy your way.
