I had a trip to London yesterday for some medical tests to determine whether the four chemotherapy cycles that I was treated with in hospital nearly one year ago have affected fertility.
The day began at 10am with a superb cooked breakfast at the nearby local community centre and then a short drive to the railway station.
I then travelled to London on a direct, uncrowded train.
It was a bit wet weatherise and so I decided that I would walk from the railway terminal to the hospital, a journey that I am used to which takes about ten minutes.
When I got to the hospital I visited some of the nurses on the ward where I stayed for the best part of seven months last year when I had acute myeloid leukaemia.
I gave the nurses some hand made key fobs and whistles as Christmas gifts, (see featured image), then went for the routine test appointment in another wing of the hospital.
I then walked back to the station and travelled back home on another direct train.
I was back by 4pm.
I will have to wait in for a phone call on Monday when I will get the test results back.
