Poems for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month: 1) Me

As my lovely mummy said in her post a few days ago, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. I have been woefully silent for a few months, but it is extra woeful (no idea if that makes sense?  Right now it is too late for words and meds are taking effect!!)  to be silent now we…read more

A Mum’s Eye View

On June 24th 2015, life changed as we knew it. That was our very own D day- diagnosis day. The day the world came crashing down, the day our lives changed, the day I changed. Beth’s sarcoma brought feelings and emotions into our lives that no family should have to endure. Watching your child, your…read more

Feeling Fabulous!

Over the past twelve weeks I have been going from strength to strength. I have not posted on this blog for a ridiculousy long time, and I am sorry for that. The good thing, however, is that whereas my absence is normally a sign of me being unwell and feeling super crappy, now it is…read more

Abscess All Areas

  Apart from this introduction, I actually wrote this blog entry quite a while ago, but could not get it up when I wanted to, when I was still in hospital. I’m so much stronger now and am finally getting back to doing things that seem normal, which is just the best feeling. It has,…read more

So we thought it was over…

This post is a repeat of what I posted on Facebook on Wednesday, for those of you who do not like the Tumour Has It Facebook page. Apologies for not posting it on here sooner…. I’ve been pretty silent since my last blog, despite promising to write more often. Unfortunately it is because things have…read more

Out from Hospital, Into the World

On Saturday I was discharged from UCLH, after spending a total of nearly six weeks in hospital. This was, without a doubt, the most traumatic admission of them all, in many ways equalling my three week stay in Stanmore when I had my spinal surgery.

Emergency Admission

I wrote this a few days ago, just after I was transferred to UCLH. This is the first post for a while, and it is likely to be the last for a while longer. As you may or may not be aware, I have been in hospital for the past two weeks after being admitted with…read more

Amy’s* Blog

This is a guest post written by a lovely lady called Amy*, about her experiences of having to deal with strangers’ intrusions in relation to her health difficulties.

Mental Health / Mental Hell

I’m aware that I haven’t posted for a long while, and a lot of you are probably in the dark about exactly where I am in my treatment now. Well, unfortunately this post isn’t going to go into much depth about my treatment and how it itself is going, because for me right now there…read more

Constipation For The Nation

Hallelujiah, thank the Lord, it is finally Thursday! The big day has arrived, the day I have been looking forward to for God knows how long. Why has this day been marked on the calendar for so long, I hear you ask? Well, why don’t you fathom a guess. Is it: I’m finally heading out,…read more

WTF CHEMO, WTF

I started this post a week after my first round of chemo, but didn’t get too far. In fact, the whole thing was comprised of only the words in the title of this post, and remained stuck like that for another week. WTF CHEMO, WTF

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Yesterday I shaved my head and I gotta say, I must be hair to the throne, ‘cause I’m feelin’ like a princess.

Unexplained Absence…

Hi everyone, I just want to say a massive apology for how I have disappeared recently without any explanation.

BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN

Hair loss is synonymous with cancer treatment and from experience, having a mum who has gone through chemotherapy, I have seen the effects it can have on a person.

How O vary Trying

This post was written on Sunday 21st February 2016, three days before my egg harvest. Well today’s review on yesterday’s entry is that I was probably a little over dramatic, courtesy of the hormones. It was not a good day; I nearly cried in IKEA because we didn’t get to look at the wallpaper for…read more

Egg Harvest!

Just a quick post to say that today I had the egg harvest and it all went well!

PICC of the day

A couple of days ago I had my PICC line at UCLH by two of the most fabulous nurses I have ever had the pleasure to meet and be treated by.

CHEMO: The Great Eggscape

Last Halloween, whilst my friends were out partying and kids in costume were stalking the streets, I lay in a hospital bed. The night before I had undergone an ovarian transposition, an operation that I talk about in the post that I wrote that night, which you can find here. I will be chatting a…read more
