It is a mixed time of year for us, isn't it? I am grateful that despite being 'terminal, life limited' on diagnosis I have survived to another Christmas. I am having chemotherapy for metasteses in the liver, the first ones were in the lungs. There is shrinkage so the chemo is working even if it is knocking me out. So congratulations to all of us who have a bit more mileage in us.
At the same time I grieve for all those that we hear about on here that will not make this Christmas. In this cancer lottery you just never know when it is your time, do you? My heart goes out to the family and friends who will have empty chairs at Christmas.
