- 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..

Been snappy and grumpy...
Been in a crap mood for these last few days. Everything has irritated me or just made me feel like I want to shout at someone :-(
Unfortunately for Dj he's decided to pick this week to also be a little grump (probably feeding off my stress).
Today, for the first time in the last 4 days, I didn't end up yelling at him for being cheeky, annoying, back-chatting or just really being a typical 11 yr old.
Today I bit my tongue and told him he'll be losing his Xbox for weeks if he continues with the back-chat.
He snapped out 0f it within 5 minutes - Don't you just love the power of technology :-)
At this rate he'll be glad to see the back of me for a few weeks......
Hospital appointments department rang today to 'remind' me about my operation next week...almost said 'Really? I'd completely forgotten all about it' :-))
So the current plan is that the ward sister will contact me on Sunday to confirm they have a bed (sigh) and if so, confirm what time I should aim to get there by on Monday to start my prep.
I want to run away and hide somewhere where no-one can find me - but I can't, unfortunately...
