All our dogs

Spending as much time as poss outside and finally got picture of all four doglets facing in the same direction! From left Spike,Luna,May and Skye. Knowing you are going to be stuck in a hospital ward for a week or so certainly makes you appreciate the blossom and lilacs. Kate x

Boo to bowel cancer

I have thought long and hard about whether I should write about this. Two weeks ago I was diagnosed with bowel cancer which was a surprise as I am a healthy 45 year old with no family history of any type of cancer. I am having an op on 1 May to remove the tumour and feel ready to share this now as a colonoscopy today revealed there is only one. I have also had a ct scan so we know there is no spread to lungs or liver. Weirdly I am not at all worried and am glad to just be losing the unwelcome guest!
Apart from being very tired I was sent for tests after several trips to doctor with anaemia. I just knew something did not feel right because of tiredness so if you have any concerns always go to your doc, do not put it off. Intuition is a gift! Will write more soon but just wanted to post for anyone else who is putting off the trip to docs because it is embarrassing. I feel fine and all of us here are doing great. Kate x

Auroras roof

Had very satisfying afternoon cleaning the roof of my 40 year old caravan so I can paint it next week. Why I waited for the hosepipe ban I dont know!
Really happy though with the difference and hoping to get her finished by 1 May when I have to go for an operation. She'll be great to convalesce in.
