One Week Post Op 
Oh look, for goodness sake, STOP ASKING!!! You cannot come to the Ritz with me okay. Kylie has phoned and asked if she could join me cause she is suffering a little with low profile. Obviously being seen with me at such a prestigous establishment will do wonders for her reputation.....I agreed of course, although I was quick to add that if I received a call from Lizzie (HRH) I may have to take a raincheck.

Anyway, I agree the entertainment could be excellent with Mr Bush on Grand and Maree sprawled casually over the top - of the piano, not Mr Bush - but just mime please Maree, I've heard you sing....The pole dancing routines might not be 'tea material' though, so we may have to rehearse something a little more......sedate.

And now for Almost Anon....still haven't got it. But just to clarify everyone, they weren't laughing at MY dancing, just the jolly old occasion. My dancing was 'Pussycat Dolls Perfection', was it not?

I won't add much more other than to say that exactly one week ago I was lying in recovery after a long op. Today I went for a walk in the woods and it was lovely. Each day better and stronger. I may have some more info later about when I can expect the pathology/histiology reports. I had some poignant moments today with some people and, although nothing is very clear yet, some patterns are emerging:
*strong, HAPPY people around me make the days better.....
*there is no end to the astounding kindness and love of my network of friends,
*chocolate is better than paracetamol.
And as for my fantastic idea....well Tracy, you'll have to wait till tomorrow. Let's just say it could involve a party, a global fundraiser and some 'giving back'......and possibly Mr Bush on piano, Maree on pole and Kylie on vocals.....

Drains Out Today 
Today I feel low.....lower than a pair of low rise hipsters on a Sumo wrestler.....Been spending too many late nights reading discussion forums on cancer websites (reputable ones) about secondary cancer and chemo etc. Not great bedtime reading......

One good thing today; district nurse came to take drains out so I am no longer tethered to drains and tubes. I was very nervous about the procedure so SMSd Wendy for hand-holding (yes I know I am a chicken) but in actual fact it was not painful really.

Angela, I know you will have looked this up but for those who don't know, as I had mastectomy and axillary clearance (which means several lymph nodes were removed) two drains are kept in place to drain the fluid - one of the functions of the lymphatic system - to prevent build up of fluid and swelling. When I get the results one of the important issues will be whether or not the cancer has spread to the lymphatic system. If it has there is obviously a much greater risk of the cancer spreading or having spread already. If the lymph nodes are negative for cancer my overall prognosis will be much better. Just one of the answers I can't wait to be told.....

See you in the soup x

You Won't Believe This! 
It is now 1.15am and of course I can't sleep....but you are not gonna believe this! I heard Jakey moaning in his sleep so went to check on him. He was lying in the middle of the floor with his little head using Big Tigger as a pillow. With much of a struggle my one good arm pulled him back into bed. Checked on Ali. She is lying upside down in her bed with no covers on. Had to wake her to get her back. Tess and Jono are sleeping downstairs in the loungeroom because Tess has been vomiting since 10pm....and still is judging by the sounds of things. And my mum is snoring so loudly the whole house is reverberating!!!! Wendy will hear and come over in a minute. Can you believe that? I should have stayed in hospital. Oh, you gotta laugh really.....
Will try some lavender oil now i think......xxx

PS Note to myself to tell you about my fab new idea....tomorrow.
