The dreaded "C" word

blogged by me domestic goddess On 9/26/2008 08:44:00 AM
Statistics show that 1 in 4 of us will have cancer. Breast cancer is a common disease. One in nine women in the UK will develop it at some point in their lifetime, so it is not unusual to have one or two members of your family who have had breast cancer by chance.

Yesterday I had to see the "breast" doctor at the hospital with regard to a lump, and the dreaded "C" word was mentioned several times when referring to family history, etc. At the end of my examination, the conclusion was it is most likely to be a benign lump, but to be cautious, a biopsy has been suggested and an ultra scan. So I am off again within the fortnight to be prodded one more time before i have an operation to remove it!

There is a huge sense of relief, but I still feel a little apprehensive...............Like us all, we don't expect to have to deal with even the slightest thought that one of us may have cancer. I don't have "it", but for the best part of this week, I did wonder what if? Its a scary thought.....

So enough of my doom and gloom. When I got home from the hospital there was a message from my dearest friend up North, Karen. I rang her back, she was on her way back from work. She rang me a few minutes later to ask me to do a huge favour for her. Not a problem, what did she need em to so? Could I collect some goods from Peterborough for her on the 20th October. Checked my diary, i was free, so no problem. "Where do i need to go?", I asked. I had to go to the train then dawned on me......................."Are you coming to visit?" a fit of giggles on the other end of the phone. I cannot tell you I happy I am. Karen thinks I can keep a secret, er not likely! I was on the phone to peter within seconds of putting the phone down to tell him. The girls still don't know..............yet!

And finally, I have been busy this week looking after my poorly Lilly, who is well and at school now I am pleased to report, as well as playing with my Bad Girls kit. Look away now if you don't want to see any sneaky peeks!!

More to come over the weekend.....

We have a busy weekend ahead. Izzy wants to head of to Next to spend her birthday money, we have Brownie and Rainbow camp fire night on Saturday and Sunday I am teaching and cropping!Looking forward also to a bit of a lie in tomorrow.

Hugs all and thanks for stopping by

    lots of love hunny- tis indeed the scariest thing. I think now is a good time to mention the breakthrough generations research. Go to this link and sign up everyone.
    They do ask for blood, BUT you don't have to (it helps if you can) I did it, and posting off bottles of blood is very amusing! This research is HUGE, and can help us find a cure x
