A quick note

Just a quick note..... I have been remiss in keeping up with all the wonderful blogs that I follow, and have not felt able to blog myself. I have been undergoing tests for cervical cancer, and am now awaiting biopsy results. Basically I am having difficulties focussing on anything much at all.

Whatever happens, and I am trying hard to keep positive, I will return to reading everything  “my blogging friends” write, and being involved in your worlds again. Although I am reading most posts at the moment, commenting seems a step too far when my mind is mush !

Love and best wishes to everyone

  1. Hi Janice,

    What a shock and difficult time this must be for you and those who love you. I'm not good on prayers but I will be keeping everything crossed that the tests prove to be negative. If not, the treatments available work amazingly well.

    It's not surprising that your 'brain has turned to mush' but it is surely a positive step that you've been able to write this post. You will need support at this time and I'm sure you can count on your blogging friends.

    I'll be thinking about you and will be available via the blog or email if you need some support or a listening ear.
    Take care

  2. Oh Janice love, I'm so very sorry to hear this. Having been in the same awful situation twice myself (breast, not cervical) I know exactly what you're going through. Read away and try to distract yourself if you can and we'll look forward to seeing you back with us as soon as possible. I'm not sure I'm good at it, but I do pray and you will be very much in my prayers.

    If you need it, my email is in my profile. Pxx

  3. No, what a shock this is, Janice. I'm so very sorry you're going through this worrying time. As Gaynor says, let's really hope that your test results are clear and the fog lifts soon. I send you lots of love, please know I'm thinking of you.

  4. I'm thinking of you Janice - I know that brain mush feeling too.

  5. I have been thinking about you and assumed that you were travelling between France and England, little realising what you have been going through. Keep strong Janice, we are all thinking about you, take care♥

  6. I am so sorry...I'd thought you were en route from one place where you are happy to another and instead find you caught up in this worry.

    I do know something of it as I had a positive for cervical cancer years ago so and all you can think of while you wait for results is how you can't think straight.

    All your family and friends are with you and for you...don't be too independant to let them help if they can.

    e mail me if I can do anything: thinking of you and hoping for an all clear.
    Take care.

  7. Janice I am so sorry you are going through this. It doesn't matter what anyone says, you will worry until you know the results. It's perfectly understandable that you don't feel like blogging or commenting. Just know that apart from your lovely family, there are lots of us here thinking of you and hoping for the best. Lots of Love x

  8. Dear Janice - Thinking of you and sending positive thoughts your way. I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results.

  9. Dear Janice, I know it won't help, but, I do know what you are going through and how muddled the mind gets awaiting results and how difficult it can be to focus. I'm a praying sort of gal, and doing it for you right now.

  10. Dear Janice....I fully understand how you feel, you are on pins and needles with this black cloud over you till you receive the results.
    I've had Ovarian Cancer 19 years ago and 26 years ago Thyroid Cancer, my Mom had Cervical Cancer which is highly curable....and that was 32 years ago..... sending you lots of good wishes and special blessings. Modern medicine works miracles. XXOO

  11. Thinking of you

    Love Shards xxx

  12. Oh, that is very tough. The waiting for results at a time like this is awful, so I hope they are quick at getting back to you. And that they are negative! I don't do prayers but I am sending positive vibes your way.

  13. Janice, I often visit Villeneuve near Caunes and the village has a special atmosphere. The bar, the abbey, the sculptures and just the narrow streets themselves. Much enjoy your blog to remind me of that.
    Good luck with the tests and everything
    Best wishes


  14. Janice - been meaning to write for a while just to let you know that we are all thinking of you. Stay positive

    All our love

    Rick and Hannah
