Movin’ Along

Pat's Cancer Journey

I have now completed 13 radiation treatments and 4 chemotherapy sessions.  Scary, but few side-effects.  Due to medication given along with chemo drugs, I’ve had no nausea or lack of appetite.  I do have numbness in my toes which I’m told is something normal with chemo.  As for the radiation, I’ve experienced a little lower abdominal discomfort but nothing to scream about,  I do tire very easily but again, I’m told that is normal.

I sorta got excited prematurely.  I thought I had one more chemotherapy treatment but it’s actually 2 treatments.  False alarm.  So the real test for the chemo regimen is an MRI with Contrast 4/13.  This will be used to compare with one taken at the start of treatment then we’ll see what next steps are.

5 more weeks of radiation so no end in sight with that.  When I get frustrated, I have to remember this…

From the RAF Website (see above).

The RAF, SUPREME, during the Falklands War.

The OLDEST Air Force in the World.


May not be the biggest or the most powerful in terms of weaponry BUT no other Air Force can even come close to its record of valor and victory.


No other Air Force can boast of anything even approaching the magnificence of the ‘Battle of Britain‘.


It is an Air Force that has never seen defeat in a war. Ah! The Falklands War!

I am so proud of the RAF. They always give me chills.

Thank YOU, RAF.

Happy Birthday.

And next year, 100 YEARS!

PLEASE join me a rousing rendition of “Rule Britannia“.

Wrigley’s Chewing Gum Came To Be This Day 126-Years Ago — April 1, 1881 (Kid YOU Not).

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and read here. Wikipedia link:

Growing up in Ceylon in the 1950s and 1960s we did NOT have chewing gum. There was a draconian ban on all non-essential imported products and chewing gum was definitely considered non-essential. Though Ceylon was a major producer of natural rubber we did not know, in those days, how to make chewing gum. It took us over 10-years to work out how to make tomato ketchup and decent chocolate.

Suffice to say there was a high premium on any chewing gum you could obtain — from tourists, visiting ships and relatives visiting abroad.

Wrigleys was popular. It is funny how it is readily available ‘here’ but was a very scarce, and thus previous, commodity in my youth.

I go through phases with gum. Not chewing any at present. But could start tomorrow.
