Wheres mum !!

G'day all,

You might have read in the comments that mum was having a colonoscopy on Friday 18th. For those that are not aware, mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer in April, 2004. After quite lengthy and numerous operations, and areas of the bowel removed, she has been under constant specialist care, having blood test every 3 months and colonoscopys every 6th mths. We have had a few little scares with other growths popping up and being removed, and yesterday they found another small growth, but was able to remove it during the procedure. Mum is doing fine and her recovery has been good. She doesnt handle anaethestic very well, but I have spoken to her a few times in the last 24hrs and all is well, her spirits are high - she just has a nagging headache. She has her very good and life long friends Ron & Irene staying with her for a week or so, and they promise me they are taking very good care of her, and all is well. I know she will be chaffing at the bit to get back to the blogging community, which I expect will be sooner rather than later.

In advance I would like to thank you all for your good wishes and words of encouragement

Caz

I'm sorry to hear of the finding again this time. Also am glad it could be removed without major surgery.
