Gavin: The plan

We met with three consultants today, all representing the different specialisms that Sonny has been under at various stages of his disease. They have agreed that the next course of action for Sonny will be a month long course of Radiotherapy followed by another DLi. This is not pretty, but it's a treatment we haven't tried yet so there is something positive in not going down the same old route.
From GOSH we sped over to an appointment with the Radiology team at UCH who were extremely professional and talked us through everything from the tiny tattoos Sonny will have to ensure he is lined up every day, to a parking permit that allows us to get a bit closer to the hospital.
It's another big undertaking that involves daily treks in the car to the west end which will only add to the side effects of this new treatment, but as ever we'll fight on.
Here we go yet again. Wish him luck.


  1. We wish him all the luck in the goddam whole wide world.

  2. And a little bit more from me... just to be on the safe side.

  4. If Sonny is having radiotherapy at UCH I might see you there... my niece has treatment
    lined up there for the next 3 wks (she's usually on ward 11).
    lots of love and luck for the treatment ahead.
