A new year.

This is being written on new years eve 2015 – 2016 looms. The end of the most challenging year of my life. I has been a lengthy period since my last blog, caused by treatment induced lack of enthusiasm. I am now in day 84 of my stem cell transplant, and it has gone well. I have pleased myself and the haematologist, so that is something major to be grateful for. Later than originally planned because of the heart hiccup already mentioned in a previous blog, nonetheless a success so far. The heart stuff has led to three heart procedures, if it’s not one thing its another!

So what now? I feel good at the moment, I am getting back to being able to do the things I used to do, and feel almost like I used to. Not quite – fatigue is still a problem, lack of hair has defined my new “Heisenberg” style, but all this is okay compared to what was. I’m not complaining.

…….. so 2016 – what will it bring? What do I want it to bring? What am I prepared to do to ensure that every day I am now blessed with is a good one?

Learn a new skill? Travel?Change my lifestyle or carry on regardless?

This is for me to ponder in 2016. After having gone through a year of ‘challenge’ and come through it rather well, I am determined things will not merely ‘drift’ until the bloods deteriorate or until my heart starts being naughty again – but what to do?
