Babe update.....

Haven't written much for the last couple of weeks....but no news is good news! Karena continues to make progress - slowly but surely - it's now 3 weeks since her operation. She's still getting some pain from her wound, but aside from trying some hoovering the other day (why would she do that?), she's generally being quite sensible and resting up (at least some of the time) !
She had her check up at the hospital this afternoon - and they are very pleased with her progress.
Plans for the next phase of her treatment are :

  • kidney function test next week,
  • see oncologist on 1st June
  • 1st post-op chemo on 5th June
  • another CT scan (which may be either before or after next chemo).

Things Karena says she's grateful for :-

  • "The breath in my body"
  • "Hope"
  • "Great doctors and fantastic nursing staff"

The road is a long one...still 3-6 chemo's left to go through. Appreciating your prayers once again for the next phase.....


  1. Take it steady Karena - the work will wait!
    Lots of love to you all
    M & D xxxxx

  2. Great to hear the ongoing good news...
    Put that vacuum down girl!!!...
    Love and prayers continuing your way guys

  3. Craig, Karena got the hoover out as she saw it needed doing - thats what us girlies do. You simply must try harder with the cleaning whilst holding down a full time job, looking after the kids, church stuff, cooking, walking the dog, washing the car etc etc,
    Love to all

  4. Prayers coming your way for the next phase.
    In the meantime, hoovering? Isn't that what kids are for?? Anyway, if that doesn't appeal, why not do a puzzle instead - equally as boring but less effort ;-). And have a lovely half term. Enjoy yourselves! xx
