It is hard to believe it has been two years since our last visit to Portugal. We went in the Spring, when the almond blossom is in bloom. How can you feel homesick for a place that is not your home? I felt I belonged, that I had come home the first time I visited there and that feeling only became stronger each time we went. On our last visit in 2007, I was so upset the day we left. I told my husband, I have a feeling that we will never be back here. It was so strong and stayed with me for weeks after we returned home. I often "re-visit" by way of my photographs and when I do the old longing returns.
In response to all the queries (THANK YOU..xxx) to PH's health and the latest results...it was not the news we had hoped for. The cancer was still there. It has not become invasive, and the Dr. suggests we take a watchful, waiting approach. No more treatment until PH returns for another procedure in three months. It is removed with each procedure, but despite BCG therapy between times it had returned. We are assured that the chances of it becoming invasive in the next 3 months are slim, so PH will return to work on Monday, and we will get on with our lives. He is in great spirits, and very positive about the situation, so how can I be anything else.
I hope to visit everyone in the next while, between the new baby and hospital appointments, the time flies.
Have a wonderful weekend ..!
