I've woken up in a really weird mood today. I'm feeling unsettled.

I know why, of course. I'm going to hospital this afternoon to get the results of my various tests and scans. And while I don't have any reason to think I'll be getting more bad news, there's always the nagging fear that I might.

For the most part, I've been quite practical and 'matter of fact' as my friends have put it. But today, I've had a little wobble. I'll be honest - I'm scared ...


  1. i realise there is no point saying don't be scared, but maybe plan to do something nicer afterwards then at least you have something to look forward to. I always plan a little treat, even if its just a bag of M&M, after treatment (non-cancer)and it seems to take the edge off.

  2. Although we may not be physically with you this afternoon, we will be holding your hand virtually. Xx

  3. Good luck Kate! I hope the news doesn't get any worse and that some dates in the calendar will make you feel a bit more in control.

  4. Poor you - it's such an anxious time. It's never too early to speak to Macmillan you know. They were a real help to my Dad (and the rest of us) from his earliest diagnosis. You can just give them a ring on 0808 808 0000.
    Keep your little chin up. We're all missing you and thinking of you.
    Love, Janice x
