Default Saying goodbye for a few weeks

Hi Ladies
I haven't posted much on here about this but wanted to say goodbye before I vanished into thin air for a few weeks. In December I was diagnosed with a brain tumor (on Friday the 13th if you can handle it!) and they operated a week later to try and remove as much as they could. It was a scary time and all happened so quickly. In March when I went for my follow up MRI (to decide on radiation etc) they discovered that they hadn't managed to remove enough of the tumor and it is still pressing up on my brain stem. So, they are going to have to operate again. I am going in on Monday, the 12th May for a second op. The first op was 8 hours long and this one will probably be longer. There is a second specialist getting involved this time so that they can approach it from a different angle.

Anyway, I have two young kids aged 2 and 4 (as you may be aware from the countless pics I scrap of them ha ha!) and my parents are going to come and look after them. The hospital is an hour away from where we live.

So, I just wanted to say goodbye for a while until I am back on my feet and can slowly join in again here. I have so enjoyed being a part of everything on here and just love the friendly ladies that I have 'met' online. If you believe in the power of prayer then please keep us in your thoughts and my kiddies too.

I am trusting that all will be ok (again) but there are a number of complications that could arise due to the surgery so it is pretty scary.

Lots of love ***

Much love........

You have been in our thoughts & prayers, and you will continue to be in our thoughts & prayers especially this coming Monday. I pray they get it all this time, that the surgery goes smooth and that you cover quickly and fully.

It sounds like you have fantastic parents to support you and lend their help & love to your kiddo's. You focus on getting you healthy

God bless,

Thanks ladies. I hadn't posted on here before about it (except for a few random, cryptic bits of text on some of my pages for challenges), so you didn't miss anything previously. Last time I was fairly new to this site and didn't really have time to explain myself it was just such a shock.

Oh my dear, I am so sorry to hear about this. I'm sitting here typing this reply and feeling a great weight of sorrow for you and yours. You are such a talented lady, and so obviously in love with your two beautiful children. I pray your operation is a complete success and I wish you a full and complete recovery. As Toiny said, focus on getting you well and healthy, and come back to us as soon as you are able. Bless you.

You are so young to have something like this, it's just not right. My goodness, this breaks my heart. You are very inspirational and it shows in your fabulous layouts. My thoughts and prayers are with you and you know the WHOLE community is behind you. It's so nice your parents are there to help you with your children, that's a blessing and something you won't have to worry about. Godspeed and we'll see you back here when you're back up and yourself. All the best to you, we'll be praying all goes perfectly!
