A piece of good news

It's been a long and at times distressing few months, but it looks like my friend Joost has finally turned a corner. After having been rushed to hospital with recurring bouts of meningitis twice in the last 8 weeks, he seemed to have made a full enough recovery to be sent home (much to his doctors' surprise, I may add: there was even talk of not being able to provide more than palliative care for him at one point)...only to be taken back in with a severe case of influenza a week and a half ago. But remarkably, again he rallied round, and came home last Saturday. He's very weak still, but the good news is that the lastest scans show no further growth of the tumour, and the doctors feel confident that he can start back on the chemo from Dec 12th.

That is good news. I hope all goes well with his chemo.

It's always nice to hear good news ... keeping my fingers firmly crossed for him.
