A Sad Update

 I have been missing in action once again.  This time I have been lost in medical jargon.  Long story very short I have not been at my best of late, not feeling myself.   After a visit to the GP, a few tests, scan and finally we heard the dreaded words..."you have cancer".  Another scan revealed I have lung cancer which has spread to the liver, lymph nodes and pelvis.  What is crazy is there is a second cancer of the kidney, which it quite unusual I am led to believe.  There is no cure, I have been given just months to live.  I have already had a biopsy of the liver and go over to the mainland next week for a biopsy of the lung to determine some form of treatment plan.  It is palliative care.

I am living each day as it comes, trying to enjoy each moment.  Savouring each magical minute and spectacular view that I see. Enjoying the beauty that surrounds us and the everchanging landscapes. I am trying to remain as positive as I can and most of the time have an inner sense of peace. I have my moments and struggles but for now I am strong.

This blog has been a lifeline at times and I thank you for your company, friendship and love along the way.  I don't want it to end as a medical diary so will not be recording my journey.  However I am not ready to give up on it just yet.  I will pop in now and again and carry on recording my makes and little adventures.  

See you soon.
