Unfortunately… No going home today.

Most importantly, I can’t thank you all enough for your finger crossing, crossing of various limbs, thoughts, hopes, well wishes.

Unfortunately cancer/chemo wins this round and I can’t get home for our planned Christmas lunch /day of cheer tomorrow.

I was feeling a bit down about it. But we’ll go to the pub for lunch instead, I’m getting ma to bring in my Christmas dress, and hopefully I can go home tomorrow eve.

I’ll take mum and dad to the Christmas markets on Sunday too so that will be nice.

Chemo isn’t being held up on my account next week but due to the public holidays I don’t start again until Wednesday. So I will get an extra day with my parents before they leave, which is pretty great. I’ll be stuck in over the following weekend, definitely Saturday, hopefully not NYE, but hey… It’s not like I can really go out partying anyway! So I guess no great loss.

So… It’s not what I was hoping for, but it will be nice.

And we always make the most of what we’ve got!!!

And really, I’ve got a lot.

I’ll try to check back in over the weekend but in case I don’t, Merry Christmas everyone. You are all amazing and I can’t thank you enough for your love and support. You make me so happy! You give me life! Give all your loved ones a hug. A big hug.

I’ll leave you with a photo of one of the Christmas Trees in the Cotton Rooms:

    Sorry Jen, We tried. We’ll keep sending those positive ones though. Good to have an extra day with Mum and Dad, enjoy pub lunch with them.
    It is very hot here, I don’t think they would like the 43 it is supposed to be tomorrow. Fortunately Orange is a little cooler so we aren’t too bad.
