update #2

Great news! Mum is home from hospital in her own bed.

She returned home yesterday with a truckload of gumph, meds, oxygen and goodness knows what else.

The message is that she is very comfortable, glad to be home with Dad/JP and to gather strength for the days ahead.

Because Moannies blog is not up to date I can tell you that we are waiting for biopsy results and all the appropriate consultants etc to have their conflabs and then sometime next week, hopefully in the early part of the week we will have some picture of what lies ahead.

Milou is happy and Dad/JP is happy, but probably frazzled, to have Mum home for a while.

NOAOSon is running around like a blue arsed fly, cos he has to and cos he wants and needs to.

Lita Mona, NOASon and I are working with, around and behind the scenes to simplify, organise, gather information and generally help however, whenever we can.

Everyone's priority is Mum and she thanks you all for your messages and emails. This weird wonderland that is blogging is bringing her great support and love and she is very, very grateful. I'm sure you all know that.

(this info will be more up to date than Moannie blog as I am receiving her posts retrospectively. Also I am no longer posting on my former blog FFF fabfeistyandfabulous so all updates will be here)


  1. So happy to hear about these good news, Alice!
    I keep Moannie and you all in my thoughts.
    Warm hugs,

  2. Good news that she is home.. no matter what the tests show, she will do better at home in her own bed, in her own PJs than in hospital .. now, dont you forget to get some rest!!

  3. Good to be home surely....

    Best regards to all of you and don't forget about yourselves in this, easy to be too selfish and increase the family's burden

  4. Glad to hear your Mum is home. :)

  5. Good to have here home, I'm sure... Building hers and your strength to meet the future is so important at this stressful, frightening time.

    Thinking of you - If you need to vent, rant, shout, you know where you can find me? xxx

  6. thanks everyone!
    Fhina am home again just now. xx

  7. Thank you so much for letting us know this good news. You are a gem to keep us so well-informed. Please give your Mum a big hug from me. And hugs to you.

  8. Wonderful news.
    Send my best wishes and love.

  9. so glad to hear she is home. so much easier to be comfortable and rest there. praying the biopsy results are good ones.

  10. I had no idea. Thinking of you both!

  11. Just keep the updates coming! Other postings can be put on hold for the time being in order to keep everyone up-to-date on what is the priority item here!

  12. First, let me tell you that I enjoyed coming here and finding you in with much of your muchness in order. Great news about your Mum!

  13. Still thinking of you and trusting that the new 'normal' way of life that the situation has thrust upon you all will be Ok for each of you.

  14. I had forgotten where you were on the 'net (silly me) so thanks for re-directing me here! As I said at your Mum's, prayers are my best to offer, so they are being said, for all concerned. Remember to keep yourself in good shape, too, because you can't help others if you run yourself down to a frazzle, OK?



Hey! thanks for joining me here,
as I gaze in awe and wonder and dwell in possibility...

I have tea, gin and wine and a very comfy armchair..
