Well, the scan was clear again, so that's 'steady as we go'. If it had not been clear whilst under treatment it would have been a severe blow. So we're grateful.
Pads is sad though. He enjoyed being in class this morning for the craft work. But as lunch break wore on, he became very tired of all the questions (mostly concerning his NG tube) - we all know that can be exhausting, even from well-meaning folk. In fact, that just makes him feel 'impolite' if he can't muster a reply. Anyway, after a calm afternoon and evening, he's settled-ish. As I write this I can hear him letting off a bit of emotion - probably about the coming interventions, but most certainly about having had 'a guts full'.
