Mark, I'm sorry to hear the bad news. Cancer runs in my family so it is a very real problem to look forward to. I wish you all the best and may a healing hand be laid upon you in this time of need.

Stay positive and insightful and all will be well. Today's medicine will get you through it as well as a great attitude. Laugh, smile, and live life for the day.

Hello Chaps,
Many many thanks for all your words of kindness and encouragement. Its most heartwarming and has helped me much to cope with the situation.

I was admitted to hospital as an emergency with a blockage in my intestines, initially suspected appendicitis. I was in allot of pain so fast further examination (CT scan and X rays) revealed a tumour in the mid colon a tad bigger than a golf ball. It had compressed the colon wall. Fortunately a top-draw surgeon and gastroenterologist were on hand a devised a cunning plan to save the day. The operated on me and managed to push the tumour to one side using a Stent. This was critical as it allowed my to function again and afforded the opportunity to perform 2 more operations, the major being Laparoscopic.

The Laparoscopic procedure is more efficient, much less invasive, leaves me with more of guts in tact and lets me escape hospital with 7 days of the operation.

Overall, the outlook is looking promising. My tumour is a stage 2 (and a bit), the PET scan showed no spreading to other parts of my body. So I'll be in surgery this Monday and Tuesday (4/5th Feb.). Hopefully by Thursday/Friday, I'll be functioning, possibly getting bored so I'll have the laptop with me.

I'll do my best to resume normal service in the coming 2 weeks. I'll need around 1 month plus to fully recover. The Doc's told me to take it easy and rest, which sounds very boring to me. I guess its going to take that time to recover my strength as I'm currently physically weaker than normal due to limited food intake.

Anyway, the main thing is there's a plan in place and I can now look forward to resuming work on the Alpair 8, possibly a woofer etc etc.

All the best to you and once again, many many thanks for your kind support.
