Challenging news

I know it's been a long time and I'm sorry for that not sure if any of my family or friends read this blog any more but just thought I'd update you all with our news. To any penpals I'm so sorry for not writing, not sure where the time has gone we had some worrying health issues with Mum earlier in the year but she has now perked up and still living by herself with carers coming in 3 days a week.

David and I now some very challenging times to come, as David starts treatment for cancer and will require chemo and then radiotherapy/chemo any day now. It is going to be a very difficult time but with our family and friends we will get through it and the cancer is treatable - Nasopharyngeal Cancer (cancer at the back of the nose) - we are praying all goes well. The hospital where David will be treated is about a 50 minute drive away but it's a wonderful hospital with latest technology.

We did manage a few days away to Yorkshire last week but David went with a cold and I came back with a cold, so we didn't stay as long as we'd hoped. I have put some photos on my Facebook page if anyone is interested in seeing them (you do have to be my Facebook friend to see them though).

Will try and keep you updated, love Valerie x

Hi Valerie,
So sorry to read about David's illness - good luck to him. We send our best wishes and love.
If you get the chance please give us a ring - haven't spoken to you, or heard from you, for a long time. My parents are popping over to Wroxham 12 - 16 September, staying in a Guest House. They did ask me for your phone no. as they hoped maybe to see you and David - but I don't have it, only your email, and this blog saved as a bookmark.
Best wishes.
