I haven't blogged for a while, have I?
Yes, I'm sure you all did a big sigh of relief, but I'm back now.
The reason is because I have been so busy what with christmas coming up and every weekend I've actually been out and about.
No-where in particular just visiting family.
Anyway, today we went to a dog sanctuary, and picked up a cat.
Yes thats right.
Now I'm not particulary a cat person, as I much prefer dogs. But I admit that this one is a beautiful cat, it's a tortoise shell colour with white patches.
Her name is "Snowdrop."
Lovely name isn't it?
Since losing our beloved Becky five years ago, we just haven't been able to see a dog that will fit in with our life. We keep looking for becky again. That is so wrong for any new dog we would have had. So now we have a cat!!
Just a line about Laura, as I said thankyou for you're lovely comments, it made me feel so much better.
Laura has had two courses of chemotherapy, the second one today actually. She has to have 6 courses (one every 3 weeks) and then she will have her breast removed probably in January.
She is looking a little haggard and stressed but not as bad as we all thought she would.
I expect she is still in shock as it happened so quickly.
She has just started to loose her hair which surprised us all, we didn't think it would happen that quickly.
She has bought herself two wigs (very expensive but worth it) as the N.H.S.wigs are not that good. I have seen other women wear those when they had chemotherapy for their cancer, and I must admit they don't always match your colour anyway.
Still, they do help but you still have to pay a little towards them.
She has a good atitiude about it, she keeps saying she must fight this and she is reading books from other women who have had it. Famous actresses etc.
Will update you as it goes.
