think positive...


it's been a tough couple of weeks for me,
but to cut a long story short,
yesterday I was told I have breast cancer, and I have  to have a mastectomy,
a bitter pill to swallow.
But us Dewsbury lasses are made of tough stuff  so I'm going to beat this!!

So I wont be blogging until all my treatment is finished,
but I'll still be reading all your wonderful blogs,
so until things are back to normal
think big positive thoughts for me,
and thanks as always for all your wonderful comments and support
xx

  33. Oh Lisa... what a shock! I had a gut feeling that I should visit your blog and am glad I now did to offer you some support and promise your in my prayers and I'm sending you lots of love and positive feeling across the oceans your way ♥ Can only imagine how you've been feeling... to have mortality so starkly thrown in our faces is a lot to bare. But then I truly believe lessons come to us in life to teach us things. After the initial shock and hurt has subsided I hope you're able to push forward and bring this lesson on with all gusto and enthusiasm like it's a new experience to embrace and bring positive things your way. My love to you and your family.
    I look at your picture you made me every single day and I love it so very very much! From now on...each time I see I'll think of you and send a little positive prayer your way. ♥♥♥ xx

  37. Hi Lisa,
    I'm so so sorry to read your crappy news.
    You are probably feeling overwhelmed with information and appointments but if you need to talk through anything please let me know. It's a bastard disease but keep positive and don't let it get to you. Keep your sense of humour it will help over the next few months.
    Sending you positive thoughts and a gentle healing hug

  44. I have read that a few seconds ago. I'll send you all my best wishes!

    Let me tell you a little story of my mum. She had breast cancer more than 7 years ago. They had cut off one breast and she deciced again a breast reconstruction (I do not know if it is correct).
    At this time I was pregnant with my son. She was very sad after this surgery but after my son was born, her soul began to cure.
    So every time you are i a bad mood concerning you illness, have a look to your children and see their laughter, their eyes and the love they will give to you!
