Christmas thoughts

Well Christmas is almost upon us and another year looming. We have just been getting on with usual festive preparations. We have gone a bit OTT with decorations this year but what the heck! These are special times and the grandies will love it!.

I am not sure what the New Year holds for us – Mr Nasty is progressing this we know, so another regime of chemo is almost certain but I won’t think about that until it happens cos it scares the hell out of me. I have several hospital appointments and yet another scan in January – ho hum! So we live for today and give it everything we’ve got. I have a few targets to meet in 2013 – a wedding in April and a silver wedding party in June.

‘I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat.  I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!’
~Dr. Seuss

 I wish you all a very happy Christmas and special wishes to those spending Christmas alone - not through choice - and thank you for following the blog. I hope you will continue with me on my journey in 2013.
Special thoughts to Mesowarriors and their families everywhere - maybe 2013 will bring news of a breakthough in treatment so we can move from 'palliative' to 'curative'. God bless you all

  2. I'm so glad you have some new targets in place for the New Year Tess and I know you will keeping fighting Mr Nasty. I love the verse - I hope your 'bat' is good and heavy.
    Wishing you a very happy Christmas with all your loving family around you.

  3. Have a wonderful Christmas with your lovely family Tess.
    I hope that your bat is a huge one and you manage to give Mr. Nasty a pasting thus allowing you to meet all your targets.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as always

  4. I echo what the others have said Tess - you clobber Mr Nasty good and hard and make those targets and more.
    You're a hero - have a wonderful Christmas with your family.
