Home safe and sound

Hey all,

Just a quick note to say that Jay returned home safe and sound this afternoon, driven by his parents and my sister (I had to go back to work this week).  We are so grateful for their support and for everyone who buoyed us up during these past 10 days (friends, family, nurses, doctors, parking garage attendants, randomly kind strangers, etc.).

Stay tuned for a post from the man himself.  I won’t spoil the surprise, but there is good news!  Spring is on the way.

Love and gratitude,



  1. Hi,
    Glad to hear Jay is ok. My partner and I came across this blog as he is also in Dr. Feldman’s TIP vs. BEP trial for a nonseminoma in his chest and just finished his 3rd cycle of TIP. We love the positivity that this blog sends and want to wish both of you good luck!

    So happy that you are home and able to recover in your own space.

    Thought you would be intrigued by a piece in today’s Mail online, required reading for those addicted to relatively harmless guilty pleasures, about some goings on at Colet Court. It seems that the choirmaster, no less, was a bit of a bad lad. This was some time ago, it seems. In my day we had Mr Alexander in that role. I was quite the choirboy then and as a result benefited from Mr A’s annual treat for his chosen ones. This consisted of dinner at Chez Ciccio in Kensington Church Street followed by the Royal Albert Hall to see the Vienna Boys Choir. I do not remember him ever laying an in appropriate hand on me or anyone else. I was a guest twice. My parents, I imagine, were terrified, but said nothing.

    And you? I must say I think it was a great schol when I was there. We would get on the tube at Park Royal and get off at Baron’s Court and walk, at the age of 8 or 9, unimaginable.

    Hope we see you soon and that your good news continues unabated.

    All the best John Sent from my iPad

    Hey KR,

    Many thanks for the news, which is so good to know. We just got back last night from the left coast and hope to see you both soon. Betty’s email has a glitch which allows her to read your AITC postings but not respond, thus my appointment as correspondent in residence. Love to you and your man from both of us.
