Virtual colonoscopy


Thursday 1st August


A very early start

To Exeter hospital

Up before the dawn

Anxious? Just a little


Virtual colonoscopy

Along with a CT scan

Quite uncomfortable

Be as quick as you can!


Starving since Tuesday

No solid food on Wednesday

A noisy, rumbling tum

Keep hunger pangs at bay


Glad when it’s all over

The anxiousness declines

Heartbeat slowing down

Back to normal times


Two weeks to wait

Scanxiety strikes again

Radiographer’s report

But I’m not one to complain


A clinical drugs trial

I’m looked after so well

Malignant melanoma

The fears I try to dispel


Doing something positive

Seems a good idea to me

Looking after my body

Cancer can do one, you see


Thinking of you sweetie

Missing you every day

Wishing you were here

With angels you play



Driving to Exeter, just after 6:00am

A mellow, warm sky

      • I am so grateful that the cancer was caught in time to put the whole thing in remission. Modern medicine has had so many wonderful advance in this last decade in the area of cancer treatment. God bless you! What a joy to read, “All is good at present.”

      • Thank you for visiting JanBeek’s latest posts and leaving your “likes” as calling cards. I love your beach scenes and the beautiful photos of flowers. My heart goes out to you and you remember your son and mourn his loss. May you find comfort in the memories of happier days together. ❤ ❤

  1. Coucou toi, mon Amie
    Je viens déposer
    Le soleil dans ton coeur
    Ma douceur dans ton âme
    Un ciel étoilé dans ton regard
    Lorsque ton coeur
    Parlera à mon coeur
    Nos âmes brûleront ,d’une douce chaleur
    Lorsque je viens te rendre visite
    Il me semble que je prends ta main
    Afin d’être unis d’une grande amitié Céleste
    Agréable journée ou soirée belle semaine
    Gros bisous Bernard
