D day

Diagnosis Day

It was yesterday, our greatest fears were confirmed. My soul mate has got kidney cancer.

I dithered about starting this blog. It's all anonymous still ( apart from those who know of me and my other little nonsense blog ) and I think I want to document what is happening. Also I've been searching for blogs to read and maybe there's another like me out there who one day might search and get some help from here.

I plan on telling it like it is. No point in being squeamish. There'll probably be some tumour humour in there. A tactic I used with my best friend and her recent dealings with her late Mum's brain tumour.

Just not today. It's still not sunk in. It's all a bit surreal. I catch myself daydreaming and then think...did we really go sit in that little room, look at the fascinating CT scan images and be told the news that no one ever wants to hear?

On my other little blog I usually do a little sign off. I won't here.
I suppose this is Day 1 of it all
So Day 1 - done.


  1. Hope it is OK to post comments here. Not that I know what to say because, let's be honest, there isn't much one can say really, is there. Life comes along and swipes you a great big blow round the head and all you can do is roll with it, get up and carry on climbing along the suddenly much steeper road.
    But sending all my love to you all.

    1. Joy, it means a lot that you took the time x I really appreciate it. It's fine to post comments on here. I just didn't want to come across as sympathy seekers Big which is why I will be keeping it separate for now. X

  2. Sending my love and hugs to you both.

  3. Well that wasn't in the plan! Will be sending positive thoughts to you and your beloved. You'll be my cup of tea people. Every time the kettle goes on I'll be thinking of you and sending love and saying a quick prayer! PennyLxxx

  4. Oh,Rach...I'm here! You're so brave to put it in print xx thinking of you X

  5. Oh bummocks, strewth and bluddy hell. I came to see you after ROFL at your comments to Suzanne about her caravan and being a nosey sod I clicked the link to this on your profile page. I'm starting at your beginning, so I don't know what has happened recently, but I'm thinking of you. J. xxx
