Pads was in good form, in spite of being up since 7:30am. He was at Ruth's overnight again having gone there for a hot-tub yesterday. On Thursday, the consultant visited and she was pretty impressed with his condition. They agreed that Pads would continue with the temozolomide cycles until at least July, when he's due to go on the Ellen MacArthur trip again. We seem to have come a long way from last autumn when the decline in Pads condition seems to have more-or-less paused. With such a slow deterioration, hardly noticeable really, our minds turn to thinking about how we can make the most of the time. In a sense, this is no different from what we should be doing anyway.
