Hi @Mickbrit. I think this is definitely a question for your medical team and I wouldn’t do anything before checking it out with them :blush:

Today I spoke to my health care professionals on the haematology ward I attend for my treatment they have told me that there would be no problem using oxygen if I need it to help my walk. This isn’t just a normal everyday walk it is to scatter my sons ashes who died from lymphoma last October so, it is very important that I achieve this climb to the summit of his favourite hill in Derbyshire

Oh, @Mickbrit, I am so glad that you have talked to your health care professionals.
I am so sorry to hear that your son died of Lymphoma last October, it must have been made even more difficult for you in Covid times.
I can now understand that it is so important for you to scatter your sons ashes at the summit of his favourite hill in Derbyshire.
Please let us know how you get on and take lots of care of yourself.

So glad it went well and how lovely so many people turned up. He must’ve been very special. Good to know you had the oxygen there in case you needed it though .

Oh, @Mickbrit I am so, so glad that you did your walk and I hope the weather was kind to you.
How wonderful that such a nice group of people turned up to honour your son.
You actually did it without oxygen as well, fantastic.
Take lots of care it and raise a glass tonight to your son, it must be an emotionally and physically draining day for you.
