I have received a copy of the letter sent from the Freemans Hospital in Newcastle,
to the James Cook Hospital here in Middlesbrough and my own G.P.
This letter describes me as a "pleasant" 60 year old gentleman 🙂
But as already been stated they do not know for sure just what the 2 shadows on my liver are.
So I am still waiting for a date for the M.R.I. scan.
However, at the end of the letter, it did state that, a possible biopsy may be required 😦
It also said "if" my liver function is good "and" I abstain from alcohol .
Then they would be able to offer me "effective" treatment.
I found this letter to be uplifting and I am now full of hope for
a successful outcome to this dilemma.
However I am under no illusions, I know I am in for a hard ride over the coming months 😦
Yes I am worried and concerned about the future. But on Friday
I put this cloud behind me and went fishing for a Trout supper. The weather was good
and I settled down to some quiet contemplation.
The first 3 hours proved fruitless, beginning to suspect a black net day.
My spirits were lifted when the bite indicator moved slightly,
a second or so later it told me the fish had taken the bait.
I struck… and was immediately aware that it was a big one. For at least 10 min
he dived time after time struggling trying to free himself from the size 8 hook.
By now my heart was beating like a drum and my arms began to ache,
but my concentration did not falter and I was rewarded with a super looking 5 pounder.
An hour or so later the bite indicator moved again,
this time it was just a tiddler compared to the one I had just caught.
So, that was Friday a very pleasant day indeed.
Saturday I rested as Terry and I had arranged to go out in the boat on Sunday fishing for Cod.
It was another glorious day with a decent catch of both Cod and Mackerel.
As we exited the river a Gannet flew over our boat.
Suddenly he turned in mid air.
Like a bullet he entered the water.
Making a big splash about it.
So all in all it has been an interesting few days for me, one way or another.
Guess what I am having for my supper tonight , without wine : )
Have a splendid week all
