Chris was diagnosed with Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia following the bone marrow investigations on Monday. His lumbar puncture also showed that his spinal fluid is clear of disease.

This is the most common form of leukaemia and the one with the best success rate in treatment, so overall the above is good news.

He started his chemotherapy yesterday, with more to come today. He is cheerful and cheeky as usual right now, long may that last...

He is looking ahead though.... Facing the imminent loss of hair, Chris is seeking interesting and stylish beanies (Beanie is the NZ word for woollen hats!) - so if any one sees a good beanie or can make one and has the inclination to help he would be very pleased!!

I'm very busy, but coping fine just now. I'm particularly pleased to find that the hospital restaurant serves really delicious curries... and at only £3 they are a bargain!!!
