Roses are red!
Today is world cancer day this picture was taken exactly 4 years ago to the day when his kidney was removed after they found a mass by accident when he had his transplant.  4 weeks later we got told it was cancer, 2 days after that he found a lump which was an unrelated cancer in his thyroid.  That was removed  a few weeks later along with his thyroid and then a residual thyroid cancer was found and removed and then he got skin cancer which was removed.  He’s in remission from the latter two cancers and we find out if the kidney cancer is in remission in 2 weeks.  In other news we had a call on Friday to reduce one of his anti rejection drugs which is always a good thing as they are nasty things that carry a high risk of cancer.  With his looong list of conditions the lower we can get the risks the better.  Always positive. Always happy.  #worldcancerday #kidneycancersurvivor #thyroidcancersurvivor #skincancersurvivor #crohnswarrior #anemiawarrior  #irondeficiencywarrior #afwarrior #transplantsurvivor
Such a pretty sky today for our lunchtime walk.
Life is too precious to waste, doing anything less that what makes us happy.
Get to be happy! 🧡
The aftermath and rubbish created after I’ve sorted P’s pills for the next couple of weeks.  Why can’t they sort out all this packaging, such a waste!
A little reminder to myself because Dads in hospital and it’s not great. .

A lovely walk in the woods this morning we took the chance to “be still” and watch the woodpeckers and tree creepers looking for food. .

My priority is us.  More accurately him and keeping him alive and as healthy as possible.  Easier said than done.  Fighting against us are the Crohns he’s had for 20 years, kidney failure he had for 15 years before his transplant in 2013,  severe anaemia, iron deficiency and permanent AF.  Then between 2014 & 2016 he had kidney cancer resulting in a radical nephrectomy followed 5 months later by thyroid cancer resulting in total thyroidectomy, a few months later skin cancer and then residual thyroid cancer just after that.  Not to mention the horrendous abdomen reconstruction he had in Sept.  He’s a walking miracle and the most positive and happy person you’ll ever meet.  Nothing stops us or slows us down!  5/365🙌 .

Hello!! I’m a day behind with “about me” which just about sums me up.  I put unimportant things off.  I procrastinate.  I doubt myself.  I’m a wife.  I’m a mother to 2 amazing men of 21 & 24 who are still at home.  I’m 47.  I don’t dye and I only ever wear mascara.  My makeup collection is pitiful. The balloon lady is not my choice it belonged to someone who it meant the world too and because of that I can’t put her away despite her being the ugliest thing ever 😂 in fact looking at it most of the things on that shelf are sentimental and inherited.  I’m prone to waffling.  4/365

My youngest made his bed before he went to work at silly o’clock !! He did it again today, he must be ill!! He says it’s to save me doing it as he knows I’ll do it if he doesn’t 😍 I don’t think he realises just how joy giving this small act is to me. 3/365
