The fact that I wasn't getting fluids or nourishment worried the doctors and on Friday they told me I would have to stay a few more days. They didn't specify how long. Then later that afternoon, while trying to take some medication, I coughed up some blood, which scared me, I can tell you. The doctor said not to panic, oesophogeal tumours do that from time to time. However, I was fitted with a canula in case I needed an emergency blood transfusion and a blood sample was taken. They also cancelled my radiotherapy that day. Fortunately, there hasn't been a recurrence.
