Update on England and Hubby

Hi everyone I thought I would give you an update from England, when we got here we were told it was not possible to remove the tumour and all they could do was remove the blockage that Brian had, after his operation the surgeon phoned to say he had removed the tumour also, he said it was hit or miss and so he went for it, he also had to remove most of his intestine as well, I nearly lost him twice on the operating table but they manage to get him back thank god.

He has been in and out of hospital since we got here with complications and has lost a vast amount of weight but he still keeps cheery, bless him.

Unfortunately we were told 2 weeks ago that the cancer still remains in his bowel and liver so we have been down to Surry to the Royal Marsden hospital as Brian had a special scan, the scan involves injecting him with a radioactive tracer before the scan, this will show how far advanced the cancer is plus other things that are a bit too tenical for me to explain, then we go back to the Royal Marsden in London to see the specialist for the results, sometime this week,

If we had not seen this surgeon Brian would not be with me now as the surgeon said he was very ill and he was lucky to still be with us, he was admitted to hospital straight away, and they had to get him well and fit before they could operate.

It has been a hard and worrying 3 months for all of us and we still have a long way to go before Brian is well again, we have good and bad days.
We been staying with friends near London and we could not have done this without their support and friendship, we are so very lucky to have friends like this and thank god for them.

Thank you to my blog friends too who have been a great support to me through emails, cards and your special thoughts.

I hope to go on a little blog hop this week and it will be great to visit you all again, as you might of guessed I have had no time to card make at all and this is the first day I have missed it, as Brian is back at home now and resting a lot till we get the next appointment I might just start a card.

Got to go now keep well all.
