    I'll certainly pass this on to the person who found out this information for us.

    Good to hear that hopefully things are on the up, so glad poppies has been able to have a holiday with her family.

    When a friend had breast cancer she mentioned how 'post-treatment' she really felt the cold, so I expect poppies enjoyed the heat. :)

    Ahh ! :) ( Went to Turkey over 30 years ago - I suppose a bit pre tourist destination ? - no air con and had to wrap myself in a cold wet towel to try to sleep :eek::eek:)

    Been a while since anyone updated here.

    I have had my own breast cancer scare :eek:- now resolved (phew!) and no cause for concern at the moment. :D

    I do hope that poppies is doing well and all others recovering from treatment.

    Cancer is different to everyone, so do what you want, how you want.

    I work with two incredible ladies who have beaten cancer and still love teaching.


    And if at any point work / home / being out / anything becomes stressful/upsetting don't do it.

    My mutual friend of ilovepoppies has been in contact and says she's doing well and taking her time recovering slowly. I'm presuming that means 'reconstructive work' doesn't count as an emergency and takes a time to complete?

    Oh Lara, I am so sorry.

    Good news that it has all been resolved.

    My best wishes to you, your husband, ilovepoppies and GLsghost.

    Thank you @digoryvenn
    It was an anxious time for a while and I will be monitored as I do have 'a mass' which is probably a result of an injury, which could cause problems in the future.

    It must have been so very worrying for you. It is good that you are being monitored now.

    As though you haven't had enough on your plate this last year!:(
    Hopefully the result is the start of a more positive year.

    Glad to hear that there is positive news of ilovepoppies. Also glad that your scare was no more than that, Lara. It’s good they will monitor you to be doubly sure.

    Don't really feel 'selfless' and believe me I've had my fair share of feeling resentful. However I felt I 'was raised to 'do my duty' and being only children there wasn't any other option.

    Re Mr lara, he's doing well, though we still haven't had the yearly appointment to have the 'all clear' yet.
