I've just got back from visiting Mike and I'm so exhausted that this post will be just the bare facts. Mike is feeling much better than yesterday. He has managed to eat and drink and has been given two units of blood over six hours. I wasn't there, but Mike tells me someone came to speak to him this morning about his MRI scan. There are no myeloma deposits (I didn't even know they thought there might be) and no lesions. They have found a possible source of his headaches and the numbness in his lips, cervical spondylosis/spondylitis.
His lips and tongue are still swollen and he is still very sleepy.
Quote of the day, and I'm sure you all know what's coming: "How can I have cervical spondylitis, I haven't got a cervix?" I kid you not, that is exactly what Mike said to me when I repeated what I had read.
