It’s now almost 3 and a half years since B’s initial seizure and diagnosis, and life is currently good. The German revised his prognosis at our meeting in January, as B has now outlived the original estimate. Although it’s only a guess, he now predicts that it could be another 2-5 years until the tumour re-activates.
Sometimes several days go by when I don’t think about the tumour at all. I know this isn’t the case for B (the difference between having the tumour and being married to the person with the tumour) but overall I think he is happy and relaxed. He’s working 3 days a week, often long days, but cherishes his days off and doesn’t want to increase his work commitments at this point. He still gets tired when he needs to think a lot (but then again, so do I).
We’ve been spending our time and money on making improvements to our flat and on travel – we’ve been to Kenya, Jamaica and Botswana recently and have planned upcoming jaunts to Australia and Japan.
Long may this state of contentment continue!
