    I am up mega early as I am so excited about going to Penny Brohn today!  Partly why I am excited is the fact that I am NOT ill, and can go!

    My ex-colleague/friend, Daniel who also got cancer has got one the tunnelled catheters almost like mine. His is called the Hickman line.  The main difference is that my catheter tails are shorter and more rigid, and the lumen of the catheter is wider.  They need the wider catheters for the stem cell harvesting as this apparently happens in at a high velocity.  Daniel sent me a message about his cyborg line, and said that a doctor had advised his not to shoot with a riffle on the side where the line is.  I am in a pickle now, since I am right handed!  Ha, ha!

    As I mentioned about the Maggie’s London Night Hike advert, I thought to attach the picture that they are using (please see below).
