Wish me luck please

Wish me luck please

Tomorrow morning I will be having my yearly (fourth) check-up at the Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske since having surgery at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth for lung cancer in 2009.

I am a really positive person so I'm sure that tomorrow everything will be fine and dandy and the lovely Mr Awan (the Surgeon) will tell me that I am still in remission.

If I manage to live six years after my surgery then I mess up the medical statistics!!!!!!!

I hope that none of you has lung cancer but, if you do, then I am proof that things can be OK.

Lots of love and hugs

  • The unicorns find you :) xx Yay ! Go Annec ! :) xx

  • That's OK then. Are they big enough to ward off my cats? McDuff (he's 14 years old) is out in the garden stalking a wren (little sod!!! I mean the cat's the little sod not the wren).

  • I scotched Kevin's evil plans for the bird population with two bells on his collar - take that evil cat ! The unicorns are too busy prancing around looking pretty to be effective LOL :) xx

  • HI again

    I love pretty!!!!

    I've tried the collar and bells - you try getting a collar with bells on my (huge) McDuff!!!! I haven't managed to get a collar on him and I'm not going to try again because I really need both of my hands (preferably not shredded).

    Love and hugs

    Annec

  • PS - Who is Kevin?

    xxxxx

  • KKK aka Kevin the Killer Kat :) xx He is one as my avatar - he was eight weeks old when that picture was taken and angelic and sweet. It lasted a day - he must be related to McDuff LOL :) x x

  • McDuff came from a rough bit of Cornwall - St Day (I'm going to be killed for saying that). My other cat, Sparky, came from Truro (posh bit of Cornwall).

    Sparky plays the 'cute card'. McDuff plays the 'If I have the chance I'll kill you card'.

    I love them both.

    lol

  • Good Luck Anne, fingers crossed all goes well

  • Hello Katie

    I have always been lucky in so many ways.

    I was lucky(!) when one of my good friends, Joanne, gave me 'flu (she reckons that she saved my life by giving me 'flu - I think she is right). Because I was so unwell and didn't recover I was sent to Treliske and from there to Derriford for the operation (no cancer ops down here in Cornwall).

    I'm sure that everything will be good.

    Thank you for your good wishes.

    Love and hugs

    As a treat, after my appointment, I'm going to pop into Sainsbury's to buy a couple of bottles of wine. (I think that I should really get a life. lol).

    Thanks again BC.

    Lots of love

    Thank you for your lovely message.

  • Hello Anne, well you are certainly making me feel hopeful and more positive as I have got a mass in my neck and they are querying cancer of the lung.I am having a thorax and abdomen scan on Saturday (I had Bronchoscopy the Tuesday before last), I will get results next Thursday.I will be totally with you tomorrow, willing you a big positive outcome.All the love in the world Genexxxx

  • Hello Gene

    I hope that things go well for you. I think that the word 'cancer' is such an emotive and scary word.

    Before I was diagnosed I thought that cancer equalled death. Not so! In the majority of cases the outcome is good. I'm not telling you fairy stories.

    My son, David, was diagnosed with bowel cancer last September (18th) and had an op at the end of September. He (David) has finished his six months of chemotherapy and is due to go back to BRI in August to have his bowel joined up again. The only problem with David's treatment was that he had to have a second op three days after the first one - the second op was to remove something that had been left inside him!!!! It was just an awful mistake and he is well on the mend now.

    Please do not worry until the medical profession tell you to worry. I wish you all the luck in the world and hope that the outcome is good for you and your family.

    Lots of love

  • Good news about son. Brian is having a happy week, but gets tired easily. 5th session at the Chemo club. xx

  • Hi Annie

    Sometimes it seems that we never get to the end of the chemo - we do though and it is so good when the end is in sight.

    I know that it is Brian who is having the chemo but you are having to cope with it too.

    Lots of love and hugs lovely lady.

  • Nae probs you're very welcome

    Liz x

  • Best of luck Annec xxxx

  • Thank you Koala

    I'm finding it difficult to believe that so many people are so kind. I think I'll have to have a whisky (I've just opened a bottle of Laphroaig (spelling ?) and had a huge helping in my coffee. My true love will kill me if he finds out - he thinks I should stick to blended whisky for my coffee.

    Love and hugs

    Annec

    xxxxx

  • Sh*t!!!!!!! I've just Googled 'Laphroaig' and he paid £57 plus for the bottle he bought. How dare he spend so much money on a bottle of whisky that tastes of peat!

    He will kill me!!! He hasn't noticed that I got rid of his 'Glenfiddich'. Some of you may remember when I opened that bottle.

    Anyway, I hope you all, including you Koala, are well and enjoying this beautiful evening.

    Lots of love and hugs

  • Haha! That is certainly quite expensive but some people really love their whisky :-) I love brandy in hot chocolate, yummy.

    Thanks for your good wishes! I am feeling stressed out but in fairly good health. It was lovely to see the sun yesterday, I hope it knows it's welcome anytime it wants to make an appearance.

    Hugs

  • Bobby!!!!

    I wondered where you were (loll).

    I really do appreciate your kindness - even though it is under cover sometimes.

    If I can, I will bugger up the statistics. (Are we allowed to say 'bugger'?)

    Thank you for the love and the cuddles - I could do with cuddles now and again (my true love is not into cuddles).

    Thank you again Bobby.

  • It takes a very special person to c....... up the statistics and you are just the one to do it. So good luck for tomorrow and I think I'd hide, you're not even supposed to put ice in Laphroaig!

    love Tina x :)

  • Tina

    I have three weeks (my other half is away for three weeks after tomorrow) to think up a good reason for drinking his Laphroaig. To my way of thinking, anyone who spends over £50 on a bottle of whisky is sixpence short of a shilling!!!

    I think of you often and hope that things will take a turn for the better. If anyone deserves better then it is you.

    Look after yourself darling

    Lots of love and hugs

  • Good luck Pepsi we are all thinking of you x

  • Thank you Muckster

    I really appreciate that you and all these other people are thinking of me.

    I'll be fine - I'm sure of that.

    Tomorrow, my other half is taking me to my hospital appointment and then to Sainsbury's for some plonk. He will then drive me home and go off for his holiday.

    In the evening, my gorgeous son will be coming down for the weekend (although I don't suppose I'll see much of him - he usually gos off down to The Lizard to see his friends).

    I am really lucky with my husband and my son.

    Thank you again for thinking of me.

    Love and hugs
