Third time unlucky
This is the third time I am having to undergo cancer, the first when I was 21 years of age but fought that one off like a bull and was back on the frontline duties like a bull at a gate raring to go although I was tender and had to watch out for my wound scars. It never really affected me when I come to think about it, just had long periods of skin blackening radiotherapy but probably the type of man I was I took it all on the chin.
The next time was when 28 and I was married, now that struck deep in me as I was married, hoping for children but the awful chemo back in those days put pay to all my little swimmers as well as my hair. I fought it all again and after a few months, weeks and years my oncologist said I was cancer free. Yay, we thought, my wife and I and we lived our lives like we should, sadly without children and unable to adopt as I was deemed a bad risk of making any adopted child an orphan which in my mind was rather stupid as we could have had a adopted baby and it would now be 34 years of age.
The present cancer is another matter entirely, its in my liver and they cannot do anything except for chemo, I go for pre chemo check this week but I really do think that the medics missed my cancer earlier this year after I had a operation near to my liver to remove gall stones and I've kept asking if it was a cancer nearby.
So anyway, that is my introduction, I'm a happy positive bloke, even the news that my cancer is terminal, anywhere from six months to 4 years I will fight the bugger and hope to live longer.
One thing we have always done is travel, all over the world and I wish to continue but I can't at the moment as my travel insurance, (very good one) will not cover me until my doctors say I am fit to travel. As that decision is very open to discussion does anyone know good travel insurance agents or companies that will cover me just to be able to travel to our favourite European destinations. I know far flung places are a bit iffy as I feel better is I am nearer hoe but if anyone can help? Please drop me a line.
Cheers and to all cancer sufferers, keep your chins up even in the dark days that may visit us all in the coming days, weeks and months.
