Good for you, you get your nails done, hair done, pedicure....full works for you! And friends are fabulous aren't they? When I had my scan results last Tuesday mine literally dropped everything. One even jumped on the train from Eastbourne (I'm in London).
I had a call from the Marsden yesterday, I will be there on Thursday for a chat with the consultant and biopsies need to be arranged, it appears Ripley is not behaving as she should either. The dots on my lungs/spleen/liver don't appear to be the same and they are thinking I have a different cancer there, or they even mentioned TB! I thought that was a disease of yesteryear or the third world. However my daughter, who is a health visitor, said its rife in parts of London.
i have a 2 month old granddaughter, very long awaited and very much loved and I understand. For me, it's like I am in this bubble on an escalator and everyone around me is running to keep up and I'm bouncing along without stopping. So parts of me are optimistic thinking well if it's not spread and its TB then that's a result, and parts of me are thinking Holy Cow 2 different cancers?? How does that work?? But the nurse I spoke to yesterday was fab and made me feel very safe. If thats the right word. Whatever they decide to do, I am doing it. Drugs will be available, and we will both get through these horrid few weeks of uncertainty one day at a time. They will biopsy the liver and Ripley and compare the two, and then we know. But that won't be next week so I will make sure I have plenty to keep my mind going and stop me imagining Armageddon going on in there in the meantime!
Stay strong Cath...we both have a great deal to manage but a great deal of support and love around us we can draw on.
Add a facial to the list too
