Tough decision to make Neill. I hope you and the family are well and had a great Christmas together.Hi guys,
Had a big meeting with the family over Christmas and I have decided to not go ahead with the surgery offered to me. Having my stomach lining removed as well as the four cancerous tumours and any organs that the cancer has attached itself to means 10-14 hours on the operating table. 2-3 weeks in hospital and then back again weekly, then monthly to check out whether the surgery was successful and perhaps more surgery.
I want my family and friends to remember me as I am, not attached to tubes lying on a hospital bed in intensive care. My Oncologist has told me that if I keep going with my chemotherapy I can expect to live another 3-5 months, maybe more, maybe less.
Thank you for all of your encouragement and support, it has really been appreciated.
But before I shuffle off this mortal coil I am going to try and publish as many books as I can and my first book is ready to go. If you have any cash left over from Christmas and you want a great book for boys to read go to http://bit.ly/TheMysteriousBottle buy a book and I will do everything possible that I can to be at our first game on Sunday March 24th at 1:10 pm to sign a copy for you.
If you are at the game March 24th I will come over to say hello to you and your family
