Blue skies

 Good news this morning.

The MRI shows things haven’t got any worse in the last 6 months. The Little Bugger is still very little, is stable and – hurray! – I don’t need surgery, chemo or radiotherapy. Next MRI is in a year’s time unless I observe any changes.

I can’t tell you how much this has lightened my outlook 😀  I’ve been singing a whole new earworm ever since 10am.

I’m going to sleep very well tonight. Relief, the great sedative. Also, I want to look halfway decent tomorrow; the Husband and I are going out to a rather posh lunch to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary.  Apparently 8 years is bronze or pottery, linen or lace.

I wonder if that means I can wangle a trip to the fabric shop….?

    Hoorah!! I was thinking of you this morning when I went for the dreaded cervical screening exam. Too much information??
    Happy Wedding Anniversary – a double celebration this time so perhaps you could choose two 😉

  7. Yay!! Double congrats. xx

  8. Wonderful news. Enjoy your day tomorrow ♡

      I have high hopes for lunch, certainly. Not sure about the fabric shopping, I might postpone it till I’m off the crutches; Spotlight’s so cramped and crowded that they’d be a nightmare.

    Let me add my congratulations too! Glad the little bugger is still little and stable. And well done on your 8th anniversary. I hope the posh restaurant served up some good nosh! xxx

      The posh restaurant was ACE! A delicious Japanese steak ramen for me and Thai coconut chicken curry for the Husband. Memorable, and extremely grown-up food.

    The best news. Relief all round.You will sleep like a log tonight. Congratulations on your anniversary, enjoy the posh nosh.

    • katechiconi says:

      Yes, a very big relief. I’d held off booking anything until this afternoon as I didn’t know where or what I’d be doing. Now, our next trip in July is locked in, hurray!

  15. Sharon says:

    Oh happy day! So glad for the good news. We’ve just celebrated our 37th wedding anniversary (how did that happen?!). We’ve had a few moments of blue skies this morning too. Such a pleasant change from the rain and gray we’ve been having for what seems like days on end.

  21. great news and Happy Anniversary

  22. Bear says:

    why not buy bronze or pottery colored linen and lce, the you could cover all the bases. lol! Congrats and happy anniversary.

  23. Kate, this is great news! I’m so happy to hear you’ve had a successful and reassuring MRI. Congratulations on your 8th anniversary. Both successes should absolutely include a trip to the fabric store.

  24. Debbierose says:

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary. Lovely news amongst all the Covid Chaos. Being in QLD I believe this is your first round of full mask wearing? In Victoria, we are exempt again, and I wonder for how long? Hoping to make it to QLD for Christmas with the kids this year.

    • katechiconi says:

      Thanks for the good wishes. We’re far north enough that the masking requirement doesn’t apply here… yet. I hope things have settled enough by Christmas that you manage that visit.

  25. Marty K says:

    Woo Hoo! 🌈🎉 And Happy Anniversary! ❤️❤️ I’d say that a fabric shop meandering (or 2 or 5) is definitely in the cards!

  26. cedar51 says:

    Kate – that’s great news on all fronts. Blue Skies indeed…

    As you can see I’ve got behind on reading posts again – so in regards to storms, I’m not keen on them either but I just go to bed and snuggle up – curtains closed. Do tell us next time there is a storm, how the new doggie mat goes…looks very comfortable but maybe it will just get scrunched up as Mouse tries to get comfy…

    • katechiconi says:

      I’m not so fussed about the mat staying tidy as stopping the rattle of the bony elbows on the porcelain, poor thing. I’ll try to remember to report on its performance after the next one, though!

  27. More big hugs and congratulations. I hope the celebration was a bobby dazzler!

  28. So happy and relieved for you!

    • katechiconi says:

      It feels strange to know it’s there but to do nothing and be OK with that. Maybe because it’s the second time around, and I know my enemy. There’s time…

  29. Conor Bofin says:

    Lovely to read this Kate.

  30. kathyreeves says:

    Great news Kate, very happy for you!

  31. Cas says:

    Great news Kate! And many happy returns for your anniversary. ❤

    • katechiconi says:

      Thanks, Cas, the evil day is put off for another year… And the anniversary was very quiet, but also very fun! Hope you’re making good progress yourself. I’m not on FB so I can’t follow the news that way…

  32. Kirsten says:

    That is excellent news and definitely warrants a trip to the fabric shop! 😁
