and on, and on!! In case you are all wondering ‘what on earth is she going on about’ I am talking about my life with cancer. I haven’t mentioned it up here since I went to see the Thyroid clinic where I learned that I not only have the fallopian (ovarian) cancer but they now suspect I have thyroid cancer as well. They are basing this on the results of the PET scan I had in Wellington a few weeks ago which showed lesions on both the thyroid and the rib. I won’t go into all the details but I had another scan last week, I’ve got a blood test this week then an Oncology appointment next week. In the meantime I am waiting for an appointment to see the thyroid surgeon. This doesn’t solve the problem of where in the abdominal region the ovarian cancer has returned as my CA125 levels 3 weeks ago were nearly 200.
I cannot believe that I can be so unlucky as to have two different types of cancer at once. Keep hoping it’s all one big mistake.
Anyway I am keeping busy making cards, reading books – in fact, anything that keeps my mind occupied and not thinking about “the other”.
First off is a card I made for my daughter to give friends of hers who have just had a wee little baby girl. I have kept it very pink and feminine.
I made this using the round stamp from the Just Believe set. The colours are Marina Mist and Cajun Craze – first time I have used these new colours but they go beautifully together.
Love my embossing folders too – you will be seeing a lot more of these in the future.
I just made this one today for one of my blogging sisters in England who sadly has just lost her father.
Don’t like making sympathy cards – I am never quite sure whether what I am making is appropriate and of course, would much rather be making for a happier occasion.
Hope this weather improves soon, it is so depressing! Happy stamping all and take care.
