Getting ready for the Race!

Email to all:

Hello everyone,

Apologies for not contacting you in the last couple of weeks. Since my final chemo session a couple of weeks ago I have been feeling so much better, full of energy and ready to get back to normal life! I’ve had a very busy couple of weeks and by the looks of my diary it’s only going to get worse! :o) I love it!!!

The effects of the last chemo were minimal, praise God! I was up and about very quickly and was soon into the realm of “overdoing it!”. By now most of you know me well enough to know that I don’t rest well. :o) So, now I’m back at the school working hard on getting the last bits of IT sorted for them, I’m also busy preparing for my party next week. If you haven’t already had an invite, then please see attached! You are ALL welcome to come. We are celebrating many things, but mostly just celebrating life! It’s going to be great!  I have a lovely floor length dress to wear, so please come dressed up too! I don’t want to be the only one!

I am going to be running in the Race for Life today. I say running…. it’ll be more like a stroll really… Haha! If you would like to sponsor me, there is still time! I’m hoping the sun won’t shine too much today as I shouldn’t really be out in the sun too much due to the chemo. There are lots of girlies running with me and I have been blown away by the amount of sponsorship I’ve already had. Thank you to you all!! :o)

The next step for the cancer treatment will be radiotherapy. Unfortunately, the start date I was given originally, 19th July, is no longer happening, as Addenbrookes couldn’t fit me in. So, I will have to wait for another date and possibly from another radiology department at another hospital. It’s a shame I can’t start sooner and get it over and done with, but I will have to exercise some patience (another thing VERY hard for me!!) I will have to start the Tamoxifen drug at some point in the near future. I’m not really looking forward to that as it could very well throw me into early menopause. Joy. Well, we will see what happens.

I am so thankful to God that I have come out of this part of the treatment so well. He has been my rock and my shelter throughout this. I cannot imagine going through such seasons without Him. I have had so much encouragement from you all too. Thank you so much for all your support and love. I am so blessed by your friendship.

Right, best go get ready for the Race!

I will update you all soon once I know when the radiotherapy will start. Please pray that the start date is arranged soon and that it will be close to home!

Love you all!

I Raced for Life with my Mummy and some other great friends (Faith, Jenny, Robyn, Liz, Bairbre, Sacha and Juliet) and I raised £510 for Cancer Research UK. Fantastic day!!
