Cancer Sucks!

Just when you think you are one step ahead of the monster it grabs you by the a$$ and drags you back!

Sadly further pathology tests on my dear friend Kathleen's lymph nodes showed that they were not clear after all. So that means more surgery on Monday and it also now means she will need extensive chemo followed by radiotherapy.

So if you could please keep her in your thoughts, I know that it would be much appreciated!

You are so right Jodene - Cancer sucks! The same thing happened to me after my initial surgery and it does put you in a spin when you think things are going ok. Let Kathleen know she's in my prayers and I made it. She can too! It's just another bump in the road to recovery. Let me know if you (or kathleen) need a chat. Big hugs. Lou x
