I’m very sorry to say that it’s time to restart this blog. Was given the unexpected devastating news after a chest x-ray today that they’ve found something in my lungs. Have also had a CT scan and will get the results when we go back next Thursday. Think I went into shock after I was told and now I feel quite spaced out! I’ve been so healthy and had the best time lately. Just two days ago I managed a 10k run – for the first time ever! Poo, poo, poo! (Rudest word I’m prepared to use in front of children!)
Have to try harder to stop myself from thinking about the future – just keep on living and loving every day…….x

We're all with you together, supporting you, fighting with you and loving you.

It's all so confusing at the moment.

I'm coming to give you a hug as soon as I can.

All my love.

We will give you and Giles all the support we can.

Mum will be able to put our thoughts into words far better than I can. Just to say that you know how much we love you. So many other friends and relations feel the same. If the love and thoughts and prayers of everyone is pooled together then with your strength and determination the future will be better.
We will be with you all the way....with all my love....Dad.

Darling Katie,
We have had such lovely times recently, especially as we shared our 40th Wedding Anniversary with all our family.
You know how much loved you all are and it is with all the love a mother can give her oldest child and elder daughter that I say, 'please don't give up yet!'

You have been an inspiration to us all in your resilience to this dreadful disease and you have been so happy. You have always shown dignity and courage and I know you can still fight.

Again I say that we shall be with you every step of the journey and you know that we think of you every moment of every day.

Our undying love,
Mumxxx and Dadxxx

Oh Katie, this is so not what you need, especially after the previous year! Keep strong, you have done so incredibly well already and will do so again.

lots of love from Marianne, Matthew and Jonathan

Katie, I'm so sorry to hear.

I'm in New Zealand, and I know it's better to say something than nothing.

I do think of you often, I don't say much though. I'm really proud of my family over in Cuffley, and especially the children.

I'm especially proud of you.

Hi Katie
If the comments posted on your blog over the last year or so are anything to go by, then you have all the love and support you need to give you the strength to fight this once more.
All my love Amanda xx

Tom said...

I love you so much Katie. I will do anything to help you, Giles and the 3 wonderful children that you have.

I wanted to cry when I saw you on
Friday and give you a hug, but the kids were there and I thought it better to play some football with Sam instead!

At least I re-arranged the Top Gear Cool-Wall on your fridge putting Giles' car as 'seriously uncool' and mine as 'sub-zero'!

Here for you always.

Tom
