I'm on cloud 9
This morning I woke up at 5.30 and looked out of the window,
the whole valley was filled with cloud, I was peeping trough the sky light above the cloud,
which felt and looked great,
the photo's don't capture the real loveliness and how magic the cloud looked,
I was literally on cloud 9,
which is true!
I had the best news yesterday,
the results from my last op to remove my lymph nodes are all clear!!!
they couldn't find any more cancer, fan-blooomin-tastic!!!
I still may have to have chemo though as the 3 tumours I had total 6cm, which is considered quite large and that will be decided when I have a consultation with the chemo specialist on the 17th, so I may yet be joining the Yul Brynner appreciation society, ( who proves bald is beautiful!!)
but I feel soooo happy :)
I couldn't have got through this without the totally amazing support from my gorgeous family and friends who have been the best ever, kept me strong and positive,
and all your amazing comments and support have been totally fantastic,
I'm soooo very grateful,
huge thank you xx to lovely hannah for my gorgeous lavender bag,
and thoughtful Flora who made me this gorgeous glass 'right as rain' rain drop taken from one of my artworks,
thank you xx
whist recovering from my second op and waiting for the results we've been on gorgeous walks with fab friends and family, I've been invited out for meals, flown kites and had water fights, ate pizza and sipped Amaretto and loads more lovely times to help the waiting easier!
I'm very lucky.
I know I'm still only half way through this,
and there's still some more tough times to come,
but so many positives have come from my experience so far,
the main one being it's a total wake up call to live life to the full,
not just for me but everyone around me.
I know how extremely lucky I am, and not everyone gets the results they want to hear.
I think there's a lot to learn when life deals you a crappy card, and people who have to deal with the worst situations in life can only come out a stronger person with even closer friends and family.
best birthday pressie ever!
guess who's the BIG 4 - 0 tomorrow!
man alive, 40! life does literally begin at 40 for me!
I'm being whisked away up to Bonnie Scotland to the Isle of Skye for a beautiful week of family fun,
look at me!
butter wouldn't melt!! I think my mum had the twin tub on hot when she washed that lovely orange 'crimpalene' number!!
Massive thanks again,
I think you're all fab and a true inspiration,
good health always and happy days! xx
