He laughed out loud in the waiting room today when I finished kitchenering the second toe and presented them to him, there and then.
That was a lovely reaction, particularly given the circumstances of our wait.
It was his regular monthly appointment. But we knew he was in trouble, without seeing a doctor. It was the Italian lady doctor today. We like her a lot. She gave him a thorough examination. There was no Freelite test taken last month, so we don't know what is happening with his Myeloma, but he is significantly weaker than a month ago. The doctor was concerned enough to give him a holiday from chemo. He has to go back in a week for more tests. She sent his Freelite off today, and ordered more blood tests. Depending on what they tell her, he might need a bone marrow test next week. Lovely.
With added red socks!
