…………..When the doctor used it today to describe what they had found on a routine screening of Michaels bowel, I sat there in shock. Michael, still slightly sedated from the colonoscopy, did not react at all.
The doctor explained that Michael would have a CT scan tomorrow and then a appointment with a surgeon to discuss surgery to remove the affected part of his bowel.
On the positive side, he said, as they had found it early during routine screening, the prognosis was good.
We drive home is silence, a tight knot in my stomach, my mind racing. Michael said he felt nothing, ….he said ” what will be will be“. and “ good job you didn’t book that Paris apartment for June”. As we got home he said. “as you are always saying, life’s too short, make the most of t while you can”.
Everything is now on hold. My trip to California next week, accommodation for our June trip to the Prix de Diane in Paris. ( just when I have found an ideal place!) September plans for The Vendange. a trip to Edinburgh.
All this time I have been concerned about the Myelodysplasia and this little demon has been creeping up on us quietly.
We just have wait and see.
Meanwhile Michael is flat out, asleep on the sofa!
…and I know you were expecting reports from Paris, they will come soon. Distraction therapy!
