I didn’t realize that you’d been through so much. I know a little bit about the mk family - quite a few dramatic stories there.

Thanks for all the info. There are amazing doctors and amazing developments in medicine.

I am hoping (and believing and acting as though) my tumour was a benign meningioma, not malignant.

But I was resigned to not getting through this if that was the case. I may say more about that in due course. I wasn’t interested in raging against the dying of the light, I m not a fan of suffering. I felt and still feel curious at my reaction to possibly dying.

I’m aware too that you are likely in your late 30s or early 40s, with young children and mid-career, very different from me). (Yes, more to say on this. Love to hear your thoughts as well).
