Today's appointment with my consultant went well: my blood counts are apparently "perfect" and the marrow samples show nothing under microscope. (They are still waiting for the specialist unit in London that does the DNA test to return results.) My next appointment with her will be in four months, a little upgrade from the three-monthly pattern we've followed since I finished treatment.

I cycled to hospital and then on to work, and I stopped at the M&S in the hospital to buy nice things to share with my colleagues, as tweeted:

I still get overheated when exercising and am finding it actively unpleasant when the temperature rises above 25°C (I used to like the heat once, when I was a lot less fat). I've taken to carrying wipes so I can literally mop my brow when I finish walking or cycling. But at least these are problems of being active and mobile!

Very good!

I also end up a soggy mess in hot weather, and find a small highly-absorbent travel towel to be very useful for wiping away sweat, similar to this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lifeventure-Fibre-Travel-Towel-Pocket/dp/B000PBVSYQ/

Oooh, thank you for the recommendation.

YAY for not having leukaemia!

I found a cold damp stretchy-headband was the BEST THING EVER for being hot while doing stuff.

Thank you for the reminder - I did this last year but had forgotten: https://mobile.twitter.com/rmc28/status/616336842506543104
