The neighbourhood

We are coming to the end of our Sunday. Its Thomas’ first day off since treatment started and we have enjoyed not having to starve him in the morning before his general anaesthetic and then take him to the proton centre. So we’ve tried to have a normal day. An American start with a spot of brunch at Jimmy’s Egg, where once again the portions were so large we needed a box to take some of it away with us to eat later, followed by a more British constitutional stroll in the park in somewhat exhausting 36 degree heat! The picture is the oil derrick that pumps oil out of the ground 24 hours a day about 100metres away from our front door in a new neighbourhood we’ve just moved into. So for tonight, its time to break into what we couldn’t eat for breakfast and get some rest, ready for tomorrow’s treatment.

    Well done to you all.
    You are obviously settling into a routine after the first week of therapy and familiarity
    will hasten the progress,albeit the interruption ahead with the birth of number 2!
    Our daughter in Putney attended an auction yesterday in favour of Thomas’s funds
    which your Christies uncle/uncle in law hosted. Hang in there,we are all praying for you.

    It seems you are settling in to what has kinda become “normal” for a while. Hope Thomas not gettIng too fed up of being starved – at least when not being starved he can make up for it with American portions! Also hope new baby doing ok and becca found a good obstetrician ( or OBGYN or whatever they call them over the big pond!) lots of love, beccy & ben x
