Teddy Bea 138

Back again folks with another Teddy Bea card....but first a bit of personal news to share with you. Tomorrow I have my last ever gynae oncology follow up appointment.  After five very difficult years I am hoping to get discharged and start a new journey in my life.  I am facing tomorrow with some trepidation as I fear that the safety net will be gone.  Because my Ovarian Cancer was only discovered when I attended A&E with another problem and someone thought to feel my abdomen and the 13cm mass was found. Fortunately for me the major surgery that I had freed me of any further treatment and I have been well ever since despite now having an incisional hernia that doesn't really give me any bother at the moment.  So, all being well, I will be tomorrow FREE FROM CANCER.  I feel a bottle or two of vino coming along.......

Below my card you will see a couple of pics that my gorgeous wee grandson coloured in today while I was crafting...ain't he a talented wee soul at 28 months of age?
