This is just a quick “I am alive, don’t worry” post as I don’t really have much to say. I know people here worry if I go silent, and I really appreciate that, so thank you.
Mum heard last week that her MRI showed no cancer. This was before the operation, but the doctors wanted to do the operation anyway, I think to make sure there was nothing that didn’t show up and to get cells for biopsy. We knew this last week, but Mum didn’t want to tell most people until now, so I didn’t mention it here. We’re not sure if the doctors still want her to have some radiotherapy, just to make sure there are no lingering cancer cells, although there will be another recuperation break before that either way.
Tomorrow I’m going (virtually) to a Zoom day of learning at the London School of Jewish Studies in advance of the autumn Jewish festival season which starts at the end of the week. There are a lot of speakers and the breaks are quite short, so I’m not sure how many talks I’ll make it through, as I find Zoom calls tiring. But hopefully I will learn some things. I don’t know if I’ll feel much like posting afterwards; I’m guessing I’ll have things to say, but maybe not energy to say them. So don’t worry if I don’t post properly tomorrow either.
