Hi everyone, I'm just popping in to give you all an update on why I've been MIA lately. If you read the previous message posted by my daughter, Jo, you'll know that I've had surgery. Well, I'm home now, but unfortunately it's not good news I'm afraid. I went into hospital for a bowel obstruction which turned out to be bowel cancer......not something I was wanting to hear, especially after my Mum died of it just over 2 yrs ago! It's been something that I've been kind of expecting to happen, but not at age 54!
My family have been wonderful and supportive, although it's come as a huge shock to us all. I will be fighting it all the way and will be starting chemo, probably next month. I'm not a religious person, but I will take all the prayers, well wishes, positive vibes etc you can send my way. I hope to be well enough soon to be able to contribute some art to my blog, but please understand that it may be a bit sporadic.
Thanks to those who left comments and well wishes on Jo's post, I have over 600 emails sitting waiting to be read so it might be a while before I get around to answering those. If any of my fellow OSA members are reading this, please feel free to pass this info onto the group...it might be a while before I can join in again.
Sorry Sandie and Vicky, but I won't be able to do a catch up at the next Picture to Page show. Angela, if you're reading this, I did get my SU order the day before I went to hospital...thanks for that.
OK, I think that's it for now! Bye for now.
