Hi followers,

I have seen my Urologist and I have my left kidney removed the first week of September. Not long to wait thank goodness. I have not been able to eat anything. I have lost 10 kilo's recently which is 22 pounds. Doug is buying me some iceblocks today so hopefully I can suck on one of those. I had a bone scan yesterday and thank goodness there were no nasties. Monday I have a liver ultrasound for the lesions found there so all I need is good news there.
I can't wait to do craft again. Once I get my energy back after the operation there will be no stopping me.
Al the symtoms that  I have been having like the loss of appitite, dizzy head, continual cough and fevers are all to do with the tumour so I will be a new person when this is over.
thank you so much for your support.

Hello Marion,
Its great that you don't have to wait too long for your operation, and its good news about the bone scan and I am sending loads of positive thoughts to you that the ultrasound on your liver will be the same.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog it was such a lovely surprise to see you and Patti Jo there on the same day.

Oh Marion!
How can two people go through so much ill health?
I am praying you will recover fully once you have your kidney removed and be right back to perfect.

You guys need a HUGE HUG.
