Good for you Inga....:)...I have a few flowering plants on my window myself and also on Saturday I got a gorgeous little ginger kitty(no name yet, suggestions ?) from the Welfare League to keep me company and to make me smile. He is the happiest, friendliest, most affectionate little boy and follows me everywhere and insists on cuddling up against me every night under the bedcovers. After a week of a crazy emotional rollercoaster, I made my way into work last night, praying that I would be emotionally strong enough to do it and not break down and have to leave. Well, it went wonderfully(with the help of a tiny dose of Valium ;)) and everybody at work was kind, smiling and supportive(as I believe in complete transparency about my cancer) and I woke up this morning for the first time and did not cry. I cannot tell you how much better I feel knowing that firstly that I have now gone into work and got through it and did not break down and feel a bit more confident financially. Also knowing that just as much as there are the crazy hard days, there are the days when I am dealing with it and feel great about the fact that maybe I can manage this and get through this. So here I am a week after being told I have cancer, 6 days of hell and one day of grace yesterday....so onwards and upwards with the help of my new mate Mr. Kitty Kat 🙂
