And breathe...

Hi folks...a huge thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday...it really means so much to me that you took time to leave such positive messages for my adorable Furry Boy. I've just been going through the motions for the last few weeks...getting by on automatic pilot really and if the truth be told I did try on several occasions to share the news that rocked my world with you all but seeing it in print was just too overwhelming. None of us know what the future holds or what fate has in store for us...statistics show that 3 out 5 people in the UK will be affected by cancer at some time in their lives but you never think it will come knocking at your door. A special thank you to my colleagues at Fiskars for their concern and support and I will always be grateful to the very special buddies who lifted my spirits and got me through what was the worst weekend of my life. And now I can breathe a huge sigh of relief...my superstar "took it all in his stride" bundle of golden deliciousness is on the mend...the skin cancer was removed successfully with good clear margins and although pessimism is not a word in my vocabulary...I have to face the fact there's a risk it could recur...vigilance and early detection are key so the cubbyhole crew are putting on our happy smiley optimistic faces...thinking positive...taking each day as it comes and will be good and ready to kick it's ass again if it does.
And life goes on so I'm trying to get back to the daily routine...in the world of the cubbyhole there's always a pile of crafty stuff waiting for the conveyor belt crew to jump into action but with my first weekend at home for what seems ages...we took advantage of the glorious sunny weather and enjoyed some chill out feet up and lazing around time before we head back today to the worky stuff and finish off the projects for this month's Kath's Klub classes at The Papeterie...


and it's all about Christmas now and probably will be for the foreseeable future...Autumn is definitely just around the corner...the leaves are starting to change colour...all that gorgeous red and gold foliage to look forward to...won't be long before we're packing away the Summer Skimpies and unearthing the hats...gloves...scarves and winter woolies ready for the chilly days.
and a special thank you to our lovely buddy Polly for your good wishes and gorgeous card...
See you all tomorrow
and thanks again from me and the "milking it for all it's worth" Furry Boy
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh Kath you and Buddy really have been through it - I totally understand what you've been through - I found a lump on Tilly's paw - having said that her lump turned out to be benign... but it's such a worry waiting for results... You will be extra viligent I know - like you've said early detection is key. Sending you and the big furry boy lots of big hugs and a big lick from Tilly. Xxxx xxxx

Thankfully goodness Buddy is on the mend Kath, I can understand what you've been going through and I feel for you. Our gorgeous yellow lab, Gemma suffered this awful "C" many years ago and we went through years of worry with her, vets were brilliant as yours appears to be Kath. Keep positive and big cuddles to your gorgeous boy, take care ........ Sue x

Good Morning Kath and Buddy good to see that there were good margins around the area that must be such a relief to both of you! I am sure you will be vigilant now with Buddy for any further signs. Your sneaky peeks are very titillating! Susan x

Hi Kath, like so many pets, Buddy deserved a bit of limelight yesterday, he has handled the whole distressing event impeccably - and so have you... Here's to happy days in the future.

Love the sneak peak and the card you received is beautiful.

Buddy is so Lucky to have a such a loving and careing Mum. So glad Buddy is on the mend, and that things can get back to normal. Give him a big hug from Me.

And a big hug for you too Kath.

Hi Kath - I've just been catching up with some blogging and I was so sorry to read about the trauma you all went through last week.... it must have been difficult to put on your 'smiley face' and exuberant persona whilst coming to terms with it all. Hope all goes well.
Your sneak peeks look so good - look forward to seeing the reveals.
Take care.
Hugs
Heather

Great news that the Budster is on the mend!. Likin' the sneaky peeks. I too took advantage of the fine weather today and had a chilled out afternoon with my feet up. (Had to after the morning from hell!).
Take care Valxxx

The tree looks intriguing Kath...I love the colour and sparkle.

I am sure your world came crashing down with Buddy's diagnosis but like you say they have removed it and you know what to look for. Hugs to you all
