Well, after a very long wait, getting on for 3 months, I finally received a phone call last week about my blood test results. The good news is.... drum roll please.......THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH MY GENES!!!!
Whoop Whoop!!! I am so very relieved. This has been a very heavy weight on my shoulders, more so as the weeks dragged by and I was left waiting way too long to hear the results. They had to do run the tests twice, because a part of it wasn't working properly, I have no idea why, but the most important thing is, being told there are no problems with my BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.
So fantastic news! as now with no impending operations or further treatment, I can finally get on with the rest of my life. And on that note, I've already found our forever friend - a black Labrador puppy, whom we shall be bringing home to join us in early October!
So please visit again for more puppy news and photos. Plus my 2 other "projects" - training for a 10k run (yikes) which is happening in Brighton on 17th November and going on "The Fast Diet" because I need to lose to my fat tummy and am bowled over by the other health benefits this way of life offers - if you haven't read the book, you really should.
The kids are back to school on Thursday, so I will have more time for all the above, and blogging, of course. Bye for now. X
Hold onto your hats, it's going to be a bumpy ride! Thank you for stopping by and joining me for a while. I've recently been juggling (as all mums do) more balls than I am comfy with, and just when I felt like a professional juggler - BAM!! I get hit with this - BREAST CANCER!! I'm hoping that writing this blog will serve as some sort of therapy for me, to get me through this 'rough patch' ahead.... if it's interesting, entertaining, thought provoking or helpful to anyone else out there then that's an added bonus.
