The Good and the bad

First comes the bad news:

I’ve been painting my daughters kitchen and will have to finish it off tomorrow.

Then comes the really, really, really,really GOOD news.

My son was diagnosed with cancer of the Thyroid eighteen months ago.

He has had two courses of radiotherapy since then. Today he went for a scan to see if the cancerous cells were still in evidence.

He has now been declared cancer free.

The law of unintended consequences  will probably kick in though. He’s celebrating in the pub at this moment. I’m dreading the phone call in the early hours telling me that he staggered off the pavement into the path of a truck.


  1. Thanks CR. The relief is setting in. (And the whisky).

  2. Hurrah. I too will have a drink to celebrate.

  3. Brilliant news. He's won the lottery of life, open the champers!

  4. Great news FE, hopefully you will now be concentrating on more of your wit and facts of life on here, we love it, yes really :)

  5. Great stuff, at least two people on the planet will wake in the morning with a fresh look on the world.

    Great news, must have been fucking dreadful.


  6. Congratulations Nik, you must feel ten years younger.

  7. Huge news. Good luck to you and your family!

  8. Thanks everyone. I'm still trying to get my head around it.

  9. It's so good to hear a bit of really good news rather than just the same old spin! I hope your son will soon be back at it, doing everything he thought he might not be able to do again.

    My best wishes to you all.

  10. The news about your son is good indeed. Congrats, and good luck to you and your family.

  11. Just popped my head around the door and heard your good news. Brilliant. I am very happy for you and yours.
