staying positive!!!

Thank you! thank you! thank you!
from the bottom of my heart for all your wonderful comments and messages of love and support, 
I've been blown away by it all and it really helps me to stay positive and give me the ammunition to get through this tough time.

It's two weeks today since my op,
and my virtual boob is in place!
 I've amazed myself how quickly I've recovered, the human body is a truly amazing thing!
Don't get me wrong it's not been easy, there's been lots of tears and snotty tissues along the way but
I managed to do the race for life on Sunday with fab friends which meant so much to me.

 I had to walk as I'm not allowed to run which was very frustrating as there's nothing wrong with my legs!! Sky walked round with me which was lovely, and Lil ran it with my running group in a tutu and did 5k in 29 mins!! Go Lily! (let me just point out, that Lil gets all her athletic abilities from her mother)

It felt great completing the course, I was so proud of everyone, such a lovely atmosphere and sense of achievement and doing some good!

We're now onto stage 2 of battle,
the good news is it's only grade 2 cancer (4 being the most aggressive) and they know it's hormone fed so we know what we're dealing with,
The not so good news is the cancer has started to spread into my nodes so I have to go in for another op on Tuesday for my lymph nodes removing, 
then we'll take it from there.

 we're staying positive!
and even 'laffing' about some of this.
There's not a day goes by when I don't realise how lucky I am to have such an amazing family and friends around me who have totally been my rock, 
from chicken dinners to slippers, chocolate and flowers to head massages, time and hugs and much much more. XX

We took the kids out of school the day before my op and went to Runswick Bay for a family day out which was magical,

and a great tonic for all of us,

like I said, phase 2 of battle,
we're gonna kick some cancer butt and stick two fingers up to it! 
and get on with this next stage with a sense of humour and heaps of positivity!

and thanks again, xx
