Last year we were celebrating our anniversary with a nice lunch at a favourite restaurant.
This year I spent our anniversary in hospital having a breast cancer removed. Probably the best ever anniversary present for us both, all things considered.
I have immense gratitude and respect for our island’s health professionals and the administrative infrastructure, all work seamlessly together with professionalism, empathy, friendliness and in a reassuring manner.
Ok, I may have gone a bit gushy Oscar speech here but you get my drift, I’m thankful to the whole Guernsey medical machine.
So ladies, I hope I’m preaching to the converted when I say that sadly detection is key, making regular mammogram screenings vital which is how mine was picked up last month.
And let’s close today with a shout out to dear Andrea @livingoncloudnine9. When we discovered we were having different ops but a day apart we gave each other some good old chummy pre-op support, and her cheerfulness, positivity and compassion made these past few weeks a whole lot better. And we’re back Stronger and Better eh Andrea!🙏💕
