- I'm Carole, living in London, happily married and mum to two amazing boys.I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Rectal Cancer in April 2010. Surgery took place in November 2010 and I now have a permanent colostomy...Spinal mets were then diagnosed in October 2011...In January 2012 I was told of further spread to the hip area (multiple lesions)..My life expectancy is now 6-9 months. Walk alongside me on the last part of my experience with this..

I have woken up full of a cold :-((
My throat is sore, my nose is completely blocked, I'm sneezing for England and I have a bloody temperature.....arrrgghhh!
Am now going to 'up' all my immune support stuff and keep my fingers crossed that I can shake this off in a couple of days or my op will be postponed and I really don't want to have to mentally prepare for this all over again. Going back to bed now to rest and repair myself.
Am fed up because apart from the possibility of having to postpone my op, I had planned a nice night out with Hazel and Christine from work this evening (last supper!).....Sorry girls - I was really looking forward to it but got to prioritise things at the moment.
Rab had this cold two weeks ago and it took him over a week to shift it, Dj went down with it over the weekend and it took him 4 days to get rid of it (he's got a fairly good immune system despite his lack of veggies and fruit) so I'm hoping that as my immune system has been functioning really well lately, 3 days maximum....(she says whilst sniffling into the tissues and sitting here with a stinking headache) :-(
Keep your fingers crossed for me
