Offered the job of FT HR Business Partner for the 3 states on Friday, accepted it today. Laugh of the moment, I was in hospital today when I accepted it. Oh well, they know Iím sick but still offer me the job on a permanent basis. Iíll see how I go.

So my brothers cancer is so rare, there have only been 8 of its kind in the last 35 years. Thank goodness they believe they got it all. The 3 monthly MRIís are concerning (I think it strange) but he seems ok with it all. He flew over last weekend, his vocal chords are permanently damaged and all he can muster is a whisper. But Iíll take that any day over the alternative!

His vocal chords were damaged in the first op, he has very little voice now and apparently itís unlikely to recover. A shout comes over as a husky whisper. I believe we will tell mum this weekend. Dr Google says this type of cancer, depending on what stage and if spread can have a good outcome. Saying my prayers.

Forgot to add I had a mylogram of the cervical and thoracic. Should get it the results next week. Not that I want them, I donít know what to do if anything is bad and indicative I need surgical intervention. Iím over surgery for ever!

Pam, I hope your brother's MRI results are nothing to be concerned about.

Also, I hope that your myelogram results turn out well.

I find 3 monthly MRIís to be unusual but My brother seems ok with it so Iím saying nothing.

I hope to get the mylogram results next week when my neurosurgeon returns from holiday.

PamelaJune -- I had a malignant tumor removed from my brain in 2005 and had to have MRIs every 3 months for a year, then they changed to every 6 months, (another surgery) then every 12 months. May 2018 the hospital finally changed it to every 24 months for the rest of my life. Whew.
It is to watch for any return of the tumor.
