Last Sunday morning there was a man in church who was visiting from Dunedin. We knew of him through our sister-in-law who is a nurse at the hospice where this man, Tim, is a doctor. Tim has exactly the same condition as I have and has also had the radio-active spheres inserted in his liver. He has a lively faith too and we went to lunch together to compare notes. He is a few months ahead of me and has just completed his round of chemo. Tim’s metastases in the liver have also shown marked decrease, as mine have, and he looks pretty good. We were able to discuss numerous things and it was helpful having a specialist’s inside and personal knowledge of the condition. Bronwen and I were greatly encouraged by their visit and will maintain contact with them as fellow travellers on the cancer trail.
