Painful leaps of Joy!


I feel like leaping for joy and popping champagne! I have just been to oncology and have received the wonderful news that I have NO CANCER! In the space of a few months I have received a CT, MRI and PET scan; the latter has shown that all my back problems are not related to cancer and can be treated. At the moment my son Sam is typing this for me as I am in a lot of pain but I feel hopeful now.

Please bear with me - I hope to be blogging in the not too distant future.

I don't mean it's brilliant that you're still in pain, but it is fantastic that you've shrugged off that cancer.
You just made my day!

What WONDERFUL news. I couldn't have read anything that made me any happier this evening!!
(I've been away from my blog for a while. As I've come back this evening to comment, I read this wonderful post from you.)
Oh, my dear friend, I really couldn't be happier. My prayers of thanksgiving go up tonight!!!
"Thank you, God for answering 'Yes' to our prayers regarding dear Maggie. I pray for continued blessing on her and her family."
Maggie..I also continue to pray for Harry. Give him my best.
Thank you to Sam for typing this blog post for you! :))
