Just a quick message to say that the Lumbar Puncture result is clear. This came through about 11am. It did not really come as a surprise to us because of the 'body language' of the medics. However, it's a relief to think that we can carry on with 'plan b', as detailed in the image in yesterday's blog post. Treatment will start next Tuesday. There is no way of knowing how he will react to this. They're nasty drugs at a higher toxicity to what he's had before. He may be in for one night, he may be in for five.
In himself, he's ok. He is still struggling a bit with a sore back, and it helps if we dose him up and keep him moving at regular intervals as much as he's willing to.
