Katie had chemo late this afternoon and this evening we came home together through the snow and ice. She is exhausted but so relieved to be back home. Hopefully all those cancer cells will now be shrinking and dying off. I know it's a bit of a bloggers cliche but all of you - THINK SHRINK!!!

Dear Katie....I have been away in Australia for a month and have only just caught up with your blog. You have certainly been through the mill !!!But you have come through it again..Attagirl!!
Great that you had your chemo yesterday.Shrink...Disappear and Recovery.....all that I wish for you. If anyone can do it you can.
I have got to an age where I cant remember good jokes... but i can recommend a good free ecard website... which kept me amused...care2.com/ecards... Its really good and you can email animated cards for all occasions to all and sundry. They had a great Biker Santa card which would have suited Dan to a tee.
LOts of Love MariexxxJames too!!

Dear Katie, so pleased that you have had the treatment and are back at home with the family.

A few jokes courtesy of Tommy Cooper.

One kangaroo said to the other, "I hope it doesn't rain. I hate it when the kids have to play inside!"

Do you know, I went window shopping today. I bought four windows. Then I went to the pet shop and said "I'd like to buy a wasp please" and he said "We don't sell wasps." So I said, "Well, you've got one in the window."

I went to the Doctor and said "But seriously Doctor, I have broken my arm in several places." He said "Well you shouldn't go to those places."

You've heard of the Lone Ranger? I'm his brother, Hydrangea!

Lots of love Katie
