Fidget ((hugs))

Maybe bootcamp is an idea - what about a few days 'assessment' in a residential home - you could call it respite for your mum.

Our Hefty stopped coming to the terrace for food at the beginning of November.  Think he's under the heap of runner bean haulms and hay that are stacked in a sheltered corner.

Hello folks - we're back home (via calling in at Nut's for coffee yesterday morning).  Broad beans and peas growing well - pigeons have kept away from the broccoli and cabbage - and my new clematis has just burst into flower!!!

I've had a quick read back to check on you all - ((hugs)) to everyone, but specially to Matty ((Matty hugs))

Matty ((hugs)) positive thoughts on their way to you.

If it's any help, my daughter's godmother had it in her right breast and had the mastectomy just after my daugher was born and made a great recovery. Sod's law meant that she had a totally unrelated tumour in her left breast ten years later.  That was nearly 30 years ago and she 's still hale and hearty.  

I really really hope that your treatment is just as successful and don't let the b****** get you down.  Do feel that you can come on here and offload whenever you want to, if it helps ((hugs)).
