NERVOUS, ON TENDERHOOKS TODAY

WHY?
One of my dearest friends is getting the results of her biopsy today... she MIGHT be OK, or she MIGHT have bowel cancer.... but won't know till this morning some time.... I have my fingers crossed for her.

My Mum had bowel cancer in 2000, it was awful for her, but luckily she is in remission now.... they can never give you the 'You are Cured' speech, but after 8 years she's doing so well!

Not sure what else is on the agenda today.... but it is going to be nerve wracking till I get that phone call from my girlfriend! Till then... maybe some housework?

I wish it was this simple... cos I would opt for the safe option.... *sigh*.... till later....

While walking the kids to school this morning.. who should I see running down the street towards me .....

Lynise! (she's the tart with the hat on).... so we had a lovely chat on the side of the road..... it is so lovely to run into a friend! And it helped pass some time before I had to go home and nervously wait for the phone to ring! Poor Joel didn't think much of having to stand around while his Grandma yakked! He's taken himself off to bed now... poor little bugger is tired - must be the pox taking it out of him.

DAMN....IT IS BAD NEWS. She has cancer....operation is in early/mid December. I feel sick for her.... but hopeful that they can fix her just like my Mum.

Just got home from the Doctor's... I was concerned about Joel's pox.... some of them looked infected... AND THEY ARE... so now he's on antibiotics to help him get better. Glad I took him.

The lovely Lynise called in this afternoon for a coffee, which was so nice.

I am feeling very sad and 'flat' this afternoon though.. I'm sure because I am so worried about my girlfriend and what she must be going through/feeling right now. I wish I was with her, if only to give her a hug.

End of Day: has been.... sad, but I am choosing to be positive. nite nite.

  8. I also hope your friend is OK and her results come back negative to bowl cancer.

    I understand how she is feeling right now. I have a few more days to wait till I get my biopsy results back and also wish that they are negative...

  14. oh thats terrible news, I think the one blessing (when going through difficult times) is to have good friends.

    I hate to think how tough life would be if we couldn't share our tough times with those who care about us, so thankfully even though the news is awful, just having your friendship (as she battles to get better) will be a help.

    Have you got time for a coffee around 2pm ish. I have looked up CP on the net and an fairly certain I must have had them as I have had shingles which I've learned is something 20% of people get at some stage in their life AFTER chicken pox. (its a similar virus)

    So I should be all A, O. K.

  15. actually, make that 1.30pm so we have time for a coffee and chat before you need to head off to school and me back to Tga.

    I still owe you a lovely lunch out somewhere, but know you have Joel and this is flying visit up and home again, but I will be back early Dec so we will DEFINITELY do lunch then.

  31. I agree with the others that one of the most important things for your friend is the support and love from her friends.

    During her recovery she need them for strength - both physically and mantally.
