The 6 weeks have gone to schedule, as any of you who have undergone a similar procedure will know, the treatment sessions are tiring and very taxing on one’s body and the immune system.

Joe has remained at hospital for tests and the news tonight is that the chemotherapy has slightly depleted his blood count and he needs a couple of days under hospital care before he returns home to convalesce and recuperate.
Please be assured that Joe is in the best medical hands and is good spirits tonight,Jamie is with him in hospital and today sister Ann has been in to spend the afternoon with him. Joe has asked for his love to be passed on to you all.
