Long-overdue update!

Sorry for the lengthy lack of an update, though since my kidney transplant

I'm afraid I haven't done any quilting! I still have a Rainy Days theme quilt to finish so maybe I'll give that another go :)<\P> Some of you may know from Twitter and possibly Facebook posts that I've been been going through the mill a bit lately ...First week of July I fell down the stairs and the next thing I'm aware of it was September! I was in hospital and eventually diagnosed with a cancer related to my transplant (I think that sentence is only the second time I've used the C word lol ... I just feel in better health if I don't) ... anyway I've had 2 doses of chemotherapy and am now waiting for an MRI scan to see how the treatment is going. I think they expect to do another dose (possibly more) but you never know, the MRI may show things looking ok. Apart from feeling a bit exhausted at times I am feeling well though maybe a little at a loss as to what the future holds!<\P>

In some sad news, I had to say goodbye to my cat Bix last week. He was nearly 19 so lived a good long life, but he needed an anaesthetic to have a cyst removed, and he didn't recover from it well ... he came home but 2 days later we took him back to the vets and she didn't like the look of how he was. They kept him overnight but he died peacefully. I'll miss him greatly. There are a few photos on the pages of this blog so I won't struggle with getting Blogger to let me upload a new one!<\P>

So, sorry for only having miserable news to report at the moment, but hopefully things will be looking up by Christmas :) ... speeking for myself I could really fancy a short holiday somewhere soon :)<\P>
