First, a big thank you to Becky. The reminder I needed to keep on track!
A lot has happened since February ...
So I guess Ill start at the beginning ...
My brother was diagnosed with mealignant melanoma on his ankle. the mole was removed a few weeks ago under general & a skin graft taken from his thigh onto his ankle. The mole was 10mm x 15mm and 3.5mm thick. They removed a couple of lymph nodes from his upper thigh as well which maraculously turned out to be non-cancerous!!! Hes just trying to recover from the great big hole in his ankle now. Still on crutches and will be for a few more weeks I think.
I found a new boyfriend. Everything is aweseom with him ... but ... I had an ectopic pregnancy 3 weeks ago, which has set me back quite a bit. Still with him, after everything :)
But now I have good news nd things are looking up again!
My brother is cancer-free. My other brother from England has confirmed he is visiting (for the first time in 5 years) for 6 weeks at Christmas!
So despite still running around and driving my brother everywhere (he cant drive at the moment ... let alone walk ... ) I am finally able to focus on me again. I got quite ill for a while there, and thats the last thing my family needs right now!
Im back to my 2 Optifast & a meal a day. Working on getting up on the exercise again. Though its hard with the pain in my knees & ankles - any ideas for exercise that doesnt involve stripping down into my swimsuit ?????
