Yes I had a hysterectomy two and a half years ago, within a short time the cancer returned, a mass in my pelvic region and on the surface of my liver! Scared, of course, but with any problem the answer is to fight it and not give in.
I have a far greater knowledge of the meaning to live each day. None of us know when we are going to die and sometimes it's easy to waste the time we have.
For me I have been able to fulfill most of the things on my wish list. Visited Croatia, Italian Lakes, Norway, Giants Causeway in Northen Ireland. Drove to Scarborough and the Italian village in Wales. My next venture is to have a hot air balloon flight in August.
Think my greatest thing is to have seen my Grandaughter who was born in January, didn't think that would happen, now I want to survive to see her grow, even to see her first days at school.
My youngest son is Down Syndrome and he has bought pleasure to my life in many ways especially now that he is in a relationship with a lovely young lady who also has Downs. I would truly love to survive to see the two of them living together happily.
Oh, nearly forgot, joined U3A and participate in their ukulele group, such fun, totally recommend it, brings happiness when we sing and play as a group. Even supported a fund raising event for cancer research. Next is to learn bridge and join a humor group, I am told laughter is good for health so bring it on.
There is life after hearing bad news, just believe that today is to be lived.
