Joy to the world!

Ok it may only be 2am and due to my steroid fix I am wide awake but I am feeling JOYFUL.

I am lying here in my hospital bed pain free.

After experiencing such crippling backache I am so grateful for this experience, so much so that, I feel I could jump out of bed and kiss the nurses (don’t worry I won’t). Either the steroids, the new opiate drug or the combination of the two did the trick.

It’s now just a simple matter of finding out the cause and this should hopefully be revealed tomorrow in the MRI scan results. The likelihood is that the mass on my spine has grown or is pressing on somewhere it shouldn’t. This being the case a dose or three of radiotherapy should alleviate the problem. The normal X-ray didn’t show up any fractures but this is still another possibility that may be more apparent in the scan.

I have learnt to take each moment as they come and at this moment I feel like rejoicing,

I think I shall reward myself with a game or two of Solitaire!

Thank you to you all for your prayers and positive wishes.
