Wow its been a while since my fingers have tapped out a post. To say I haven’t jotted down anything would not be true. However, everything I have written recently has been very personal and Im not quite ready to share these thoughts.
It’s the beginning of July the last post was published in March. Quite a lot has gone on in my life in the last 4 months. The puppies have all grown, and gone to new homes. They have left a footprint on my heart – they were jolly hard work but oh so lovely to have. We kept one from the litter. A stunning young lady. We named her Bess. And yes she is turning out to be just we hoped; a great combination of mum, Bella and dad, buddy. Bess is already taking note to sit and wait when nurse Evelyn is attending to me. She is intrigued in all the help that a grown up Labrador parent can be.
We had the honour of attending and celebrating Sophie’s first Holy Communion in May. What a wonderful day that was. Alexandra and Grace were ever so happy to get into their dresses and drive through to Glasgow. What a day to remember. So happy, full of laughter and love. Quite a memory.

I felt far from my best in the last few months. Seen my consultant, dietician, several hospital visits. My wonderful nurses come to the house and cater to my needs. I’ve lost weight which is a bit of a bummer. My gastrostomy tube snapped which was slightly annoying- lovely staff from the hospital came out straight away with a new part. Now that’s what I call service. There has been a fault with the batch – there has been a run on broken tubes 😂
On the 10th of each month I get the chance to meet up with net cancer patients. Through the charity The Ann Edgar Charitable Trust. We have a great time blethering away, sharing stories. 10th June my sister hazel drove me to haddington to meet up with the others for a coffee on a Saturday afternoon. July 10th Steve and I went in style on steves BMW motorcycle to the evening meeting. The meetings help me a great deal. They give an opportunity to talk, share experience and most important be YOU. Looking forward to the next one.
