Good News

After a lovely three weeks away I'm finally home! It took a while to get through the mail yesterday which included about 40 birthday cards for me! My MRI scan results finally arrived too and this was good news - no evidence of residual or recurrent meningioma  reported. This means that the base of the tumour which had to be left when they operated has disappeared over the last year so I'm one happy, relieved bunny now :)

The lads are still progressing well and had arrived in Almaty, Kazakhstan yesterday where they treated themselves to a night out! They now need to head north back into Russia before crossing into Mongolia. The first team appears to have reached the finish on Tuesday but they took a very short route as presumably they were working to a strict time schedule. Two other teams (that I know of) have been involved in crashes and their vehicles written off but luckily no serious injuries. One lad has been mugged in Hungary and lost his passport and another team had all their paperwork etc in one envelope and managed to lose it! So all told ours are doing okay having only paid the odd bribe and fine! 

I'd also like to say a big hello and thank you to all my new followers. I hope to catch up with everyone over the next few days as I get back into the swing of things.
