I'm sure most of you who read this blog do so because, when Derek is temporarily incapacitated in his fight with the cancer, I post information here. So it is with some degree of pleasure that I point you back to his blog (http://www.penmachine.com/), because Derek is blogging more regularly again. It is also good to know that more substantial food, and an occasional drink (http://www.penmachine.com/2007/08/know-your-limit), do go down well with him, even though he has to watch the interactions between drink and medication. He can use all the calories he can get.
When adversity strikes, you really learn for whom you care and what is important.
