First things first. You may remember back in September, Simon had to have some biopsies done. 50, in total; this was actually his second time of having biopsies, as last year too, his PSA (the prostrate test) was higher than they liked. Back then, they didn't find anything, but didn't sign his off from the hospital as they wanted to keep an eye on him. Well, his test this year came back higher so they decided to do a lot more ... well the FABULOUS news was that he was all clear, and they've signed him off, telling him they don't want to see him again. The consultant said sometimes these things do go higher but he is no where near the danger zone, and shouldn't worry. I can't tell you how happy I was ... actually, I got emotional when the consultant told us and cried. Shows you how much I was bottling it all up. Still ... we celebrated with having a Starbucks Red cup. I can't tell you how relieved we both were.
Next up; we went to see the poppies at the Tower of London. I'm so glad we did, I've been meaning to go for some time now - but last Friday, Simon took the day off and we went. It is truly humbling and breathtaking.
Jo for the idea xxx
