23rd March - radiotherapy over

A little update - dad has just finished 4 weeks of radiotherapy. He is weak and wobbly - speech is bad, balance is bad and strength is bad, but somehow we were expecting worse. He's glad it's over and he still has all his hair! We won't know for a few weeks if it's actually made any difference, but at least round one is done.

7th March - Radiotherapy

Dear readers,

Just a quick update to let you know that dad is halfway through his second week of a 4 week course of radiotherapy. We suspect this will be "kill or cure" and I will give you more information when I can. We've been told he will get much worse before he gets better and he's already found he's a lot weaker since starting.

Thank you again for your kind words and thoughts
