Life throws some stuff at you and as always we take it in the chin, do what we have to do and move on. Aleksi's type 1 Diabetes was a big smack in the face but we picked ourselves up and carried on with our good life. Now I have been hit straight between the eyes by a bloody great big wrecking ball and now I am in the process of getting back up onto my feet, slowly dusting off the chaos and trying to continue with our good life.
5 days before Christmas( typical bad timing!) I was told I have a tumour in my Right Hip - top of my thigh bone to be precise. Oh shit I said - Yes exactly said the doctor on the phone, as I hovered over the frozen peas. Yes I was in the middle of the supermarket - damn mobile phones, never ring at a convenient place or time!
So now I sit here waiting to find out if it is simply a pain in the backside(groin actually) tumour or one that is out to get me. I am gently glowing from all the x rays and CT scans and the hole in my hip is healing from where they took a bone sample.
Life however continues pretty much as normal - kids to feed, washing to be done, bags to pack for our trip to Lapland - no skiing for me, I will content myself with photographing and videoing the Kids and Olli on the slopes. Work will have to take a back seat for the moment, but I could do with a break after a busy December.
I will know more in a couple of weeks and I will of course keep you updated as things unfold, my dear blogger friends.
