Ben and Belle,
Thank you for your kind words. I see the oncologist tomorrow and I did talk with a lady from the Cancer Society last night and received some great tips on what to ask at my first meeting with the Dr.
Ben, I will take all the Scottish hugs you have to give !
Belle, 'In this place, at this time' - Thank you for the new mantra, I like it very much and will be using it especially when I am trying to fall asleep and my mind wants to go astray into the land of "what if?" thinking.
Gentle hugs to all,
