Hi,
It has been a month since I last posted. I had my operation and am slowly improving.
I don't think I would like to go through that again and hopefully I never will.
I see the Urologist on the 26th and will know more then. The cancer had spread outside the kidney but as far as I know they got it all.
This month is breast cancer awareness month. As a survivor of breast cancer I urge you all to have mamograms. It will save your life.

The card I have put on today is one that I made for my friend Patti Jo's birthday. The first one I have made for ages. I coloured her with distress inks. Hope you like it.

Welcome back, Maz, It's nice to hear from you. I've been checking here every now and again to see how you are going. I'm glad you are improving day by day.
I wish I had this done before I was diagnosed,(which was about a year ago) as I knew about thermal imagaing a few years ago. It's non invasive, but is suppose to pick things up earlier. It is expensive but well worth it I think. http://www.stimaging.com.au/
Take care
