Biopsy Call Up

Tomorrow I have to get ready to jump into a hospital bed at the delightful Watford General and stay overnight.

On Thursday I will be 'put to sleep' and they will take a lymph node from under my arm.

Then, like a detective with all the clues - the blood, the bone marrow, the lymph node - they will be able to find out exactly what flavour of Lymphoma I have.

In the meantime, I've been pencilled in for the start of chemo in January 4th but that does all rather depend if they let me keep my spleen or not. If they take out my spleen - and it's looking like they will, as apparently it's very large and very, er, rotten - then chemo will be delayed until I've recovered from that.
