Thank you for the update Claire, here's hoping you can get back to your previous fitness level... the fluid build up is a worry I've had too Unfortunately the immunotherapy was losing effectiveness with most of the reference nodes still increasing in size after nine months and some new lesions appearing. They have put me onto weekly chemo with Taxol, I'm three weeks in and starting to get some of the cumulative side effects. Have a great Christmas, would be great if 2021 bought us the gift of remission.

You've gotta take your little joys wherever you find them, mate - and ideally share them with others, spread the joy around - so good on you. Anybody who tells you they know THE MEANING OF LIFE is lying or crazy - but we all can have opinions. Mine is that whether we are here for some underlying spiritual purpose or not, there are two vital pursuits in the human condition: LEARNING: find ways to expand (not the belly), learn and grow, and share your insights if you can HAPPINESS: actively pursue happiness, but not only that, try and foster and pursue happiness in others. Shine, if you can. Good luck with the PET scan, hope the result is the best possible.
