Cancer Update.



Late January my GP/Family Physcian was getting concerned with me, regarding my symptoms. The Royal Free Hospital, London, UK requested some additional tests including the most advanced scan for my cancer. I have personally been struggling at times, when I have a bad day, I rest and when I have a good day I make the most of it. My body was certainly telling me my cancer had advanced but I had to have medical procedures to confirm that. Today, I went to the RFH for the results and the news was not great.

There was more progression of cancer both in my abdomen and liver.  Was I shocked, no I wasn’t because I knew. What was my reaction, well I smiled because now there was data to represent my symptoms. Weird reaction, I know but I’ve been here at least 5 times before, it’s old hat.  What happens now, my Oncologist wants me to have additional scans to examine the growth in more detail on my abdomen and liver, which is supposed to be in the next 2-4 weeks. However my scan is in 4 weeks with additional blood work. That gives him 2 weeks to discuss my case with other Consultants before seeing him again. He has proposed 3 treatment options but I won’t go into that yet until a final decision has been made. In the meantime, guess what, I have more meds, let’s just add a few more to my rather big collection.

I’m going to continue life the best I can and with no boundaries. I will update you in July when I have more news. I would like to thank the people who continuously support both me & Mr ZebraKat  ❤️

Weekly Blog No 70 – My Unsung Hero

This weeks blog is about the unsung hero. My No 1 unsung hero (as I have a few) is Mr Zebrakat aka J my husband. I am very biased to be honest were J is concerned. I guess I’m his number 1 fan.

J is always at my appointments and this week without fail he was there again supporting me. I’m never nervous about scanning and testing periods, however J manages to make them fun by his constant wit. He really is a funny man. He never complains about anything and he’s there to hold my hand, my coat or whatever I need. I always make sure I thank him to show him my appreciation although I’m positive he would  appreciate an Audi more.

I always say to him, your life is consumed by me, whether it’s assisting in some aspect or taking me to appointments. His response is, you would do it for me. That is true but no one wants to put someone in that place. J has never made me feel a burden or an inconvenience in his life.

I’m quiet unique that I am strong but J makes me feel stronger because of his support. I don’t know where I would be without him to be honest. I do feel we all have an unsung hero and mine is my husband.

Thank you J for always be there for me and please believe me when I say, I do appreciate every morsel of you. ❤

Who’s your unsung hero?
