my nan gets her results today. Long story, but basically, about 5 months ago my nanna ended up with a bad chest infection and. Doctor came and took some blood for testing and long course of antibiotics. Then 4 more blood tests over the space of a month but nobody knows why. Eventually, her doctor rang to tell me my nan has got lymphoma. So she gets appointments to see various doctors and specialists. A few weeks ago she had a bone marrow biopsy and they say they have foubd 'something suspicious that needs further investigation' in it. Then last week she had a biospsy of her lymph nodes. Anyway, at last, she gets the results today. I don't know what I am going to do if the results are bad. I love her so much and can't stand the thought of her being ill or even worse sad My mother has gone down today to get the results with her. (another long story, but shes only doing it out of guilt!) Nans got to be there for 12 for another blood test and shes seeing a professor for her results at 1. I am getting myself in a right state today to be honest. Sorry, probably just a rant, but I haven't got anyone else to talk to really.

oh dear, try to keep strong. keep posting or maybe go for a little walk, or do some gardening if you need to keep by the phone.

It must be terrible waiting, just trying to think of something to keep you occupied.
