Hi friends. Just to say I haven't gone away, just had to take a break for a while.

My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer at the beginning of this year so we've been going through that tunnel. A small operation and twelve weeks of chemotherapy is where we're up to and I'm glad to say she's doing very well indeed. We now have ahead of us three weeks of daily radiotherapy, but things are very positive. We chose to have all her treatment at The Royal Marsden hospital in London which is the best place in the country, but that has meant a lot of regular travelling, etc. so it's been a bit tiring for both of us. But the main thing is that the outlook is excellent.

I've been working on a couple songs and will be posting in the near future.

John,

Your wife is in our prayers. Outcomes for BC are excellent these days - I know she'll come though fine.

John, good to know that the outlook is good. Fortunately, nowadays the BC treatment has gone a long ways towards a positive recovery. We'll be praying for you both and not worry about getting back to music; we all be here whenever. Take care of what matters now.

I know this is a very stressful time. My sister-in-law had a bad bout with breast cancer about 6-7 years ago, and I'm glad to say she's doing fine. Life is fragile but that is part of what makes it so sacred. Hoping all goes well. Really love your positive presence on the forum. Take care. Greg

We are so glad that things are on the up side now. Often for folks it's difficult to be strong when strength is most needed. It sounds like you two have both the strength and what I perceive as a fine relationship. That'll take you a long ways through these times. Best to you.
