Great news on all counts

All the best

'Angels' in Nurses uniforms,and very undervalued,like most in the NHS.

All of the Guys in that Dept were the most caring and compassionate of people,sympathetic,and due to their work, incredibly empathetic which is so rare a trait.
One in particular made a point of changing the CD in the music system when I came into the 'cooker' for my daily roast.
I'd previously jokingly complained about the style of music,which was incredibly sombre, and very funeralistic in it's beat.

I'd said "My funeral had crossed my mind,but I had no plans for such an event any time soon".

If your wife is out of the same mould as that of the 'Angels' I met Ant,you're a very lucky Guy

Yes, we did meet at Brands Hatch

I think it's going to be a good one.
Lots on the horizon, too (albeit not yet confirmed dates):

Ace cafe meet, Santa Pod run, Cambs meet (with Karting, drive out and night out) and a meal at Tony's - plenty to look forward to.

Ian sorry to hear what you been going through over the last couple of years. I bought a few things of you on here and you seem a good guy. This is excellent news mate .

Things like this put the little things we moan at and take for granted into perspective.

Hotcoupe,

Firstly, great news on the main issue here, your health. Health is wealth and all that !

Secondly, well done for getting your life of track again.

I was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease at the grand old age of 25. 3 day before my 26 birthday, actually. It took 9 months of Chemotherapy and 1 solid month of radiotherapy to get rid off the horrible thing.

I don't know about you, but it never really sunk in for me. Even to this day, 5 years in remission, it's just a big blur. Now, it just feels Like it never happened....despite still having visions of how ill I was from the treatment at the time. I remember being brought home by my brothers after every cheamo session, unable to walk - then not eating anything for days and suddenly stuffing my face with bar after bar of chocolate. I remember that horrible smell in the ward...which wasn't actually there. The nurses calling me a terrorist, because I used to walk in with a scarf full of expensive aftershave - just so I didn't have to smell the none-existing smell.

I remember my mum and dad not know what was wrong with me - we just told them it was an immune problem, I was terrified at what it might do to them. I remember my mum sitting next to me on my bed, asking me every 5 minutes about how I felt; me assuring her that everything would be fine, praying that everything would be fine. Once my hair staring dropping off - she knew, but never said. I know she knew - but daren't bring it up.

I remember the days I would feel better. Full of life. I would call my mates and we would go for a drive in my nearly new silver E46 330cd M sport. It was the fucking dogs bollox. Fully loaded with every option and I was so proud of it - Outside of my amazing big family, it was the one thing that kept me going. Seriously. Some might find that daft - but this is what cars do for some people. I used to sit in it at 4-5am, when I couldn't sleep and think about all the great adventures we were going to have together.

Very few people knew about my illness. I liked it that way. I didn't want special treatment or sympathy. I just wanted to get on with it and get my life back on track.

I was given the all clear 9 months later. I married 4 months after and the rest, as they say, is history.

Enjoy your life fella. I saw it as God giving me a new lease of life and I try and thank him every day for it - no matter how shit of a day I've had. Some of them people at the same hospital(s) weren't as luck as you and me.

Sorry for the bollocks above - but it brought allot of memories back for me.

Vaheed, good to hear your story mate, and that you've gone from strength to strength. You had mentioned a previous illness to my via PM, can't remember whether you said exactly what it was, even if you had I doubt I'd have realised the seriousness if it, but a sad and happy tale nethertheless.

Vaheed,you're ordeal sounds horrendous,and for one who was relatively so young.

Thankfully I was fortunate enough to not need Chemo,it's a horrible,horrible treatment,and incredibly tough for those going through it.

Glad to hear you're now out of the woods Fella,and thanks for your sentiments.
