Last week Lynne had her 18th chemotherapy session at St James's University Hospital in Leeds. Her chemo treatment is every three weeks. It is now well over a year since her cancer diagnosis back in October 2016, just a few months after our return from Tibet. Despite quite a few hospital admissions over the last year, due to infections, she continues to be positive and up-beat. Her latest scan a couple of weeks ago showed everything was stable which was very good news. We are now looking forward to the Spring and the chance to get out and about.
So blogs and website up-dates to 'Beyond the Sacred Mountains' are just when I get the chance to work on them. It usually takes a few days to plan and write a blog, writing in short bursts. So as you can see from my archive that my last blog was back in November. This time I have decided to upload an entry from one of my Hong Kong journals. I wrote it in 1996 which was our penultimate year in the Far East.

I would love to hear from you. Please get in touch either by the secure email facility available in 'Contact' above or by a comment on this blog.
Just to add that as I post this blog this afternoon Lynne is back in hospital in Leeds with another infection. I am hoping she will be back home soon..
