It may have been a wet and dismal bank holiday for most people, but it has been a joyful day for me as I was discharged from hospital. I'm returning again on Wednesday for another check-up and probably more tests but at least I'm home now. Armed with a bag full of new pills to go alongside my usual cocktail.

My first full day back at home has had to be a day of rest as I'm still short of breath and my energy levels are low.
I've started my new regime of anti-fungal drugs and so far they are going okay - the list of side-effects is astonishing but they do say they are for 'life-threatening conditions'. Wednesday, August 27
It's time to celebrate. A few months ago, my bone marrow biopsy showed I had 0.004 per cent leukaemia in my body.
My latest bone marrow test has come back as zero. Zilch. Nought.
For the first time in an unknown number of years, I am leukaemia free.I now just need to sort this breathing problem.
I have another CT scan and lung function tests on the horizon in the coming weeks.
