Stay Away From The Light

It’s another ‘Tommy plugs his bloody cancer book’ post!

I know you all love them.

I just wanted to tell you about one of the updates that wasn’t in the original blog – something I suddenly remembered while putting the book together.

Here’s the beginning of that chapter…

I’ve been thinking about my recent update – the one about being surrounded by darkness and hearing distant voices while I was unconscious in the resuscitation room at Blackburn Hospital.

I read through the post again and again, but something didn’t sit right with me.

Something felt wrong, but I couldn’t didn’t know what it was.

So, I closed my eyes, and ran through what little I could remember of that night.

Then it hit home. I realised what I was getting wrong.

And that realisation knocked the wind out of me.

It was the darkness I mentioned. You see, it wasn’t dark at all.

It was light.

Bright white light.

Holy crap!

I’d been heading for the light when the doctor’s voice broke through to me!

I remember beginning to die.
