Cuddled at 3am like Scrat from Ice Age and his nut…….

I woke up at 3am this morning. Not sure why, I fell asleep at 8pm and had to be woken up to watch the last episode of Lewis. Unfortunately me waking up also wakes Pete up and as he had so much on his mind he didn’t go back to sleep either. Oops. We are going to hanging by this evening.


There is an upside to being awake so early- I get the most amounts of cuddles. In fact over the last few years the cuddles have gotten more intense! So much so I imagine we look much like Scrat the squirrel from the animated movie Ice Age. I am the nut he constantly chases and holds really tight! I almost think Pete’s eyes are bulging too! Ha ha!

Pete caved after a while and decided he would get up and start work.. That’s the way the head goes sometimes I guess. I simply cannot stop thinking about making wish bracelets.. bizarre. (I have made a further batch today and the printing of the cards they will attach to, have gone to print today. So it’s coming together.)

Pete says whilst he is laying in the dark he simply wishes for me to be better and so that I don’t have to go through all this. He thinks wishing is almost like worrying and is a pointless exercise. Still he can’t help but do it.

It’s funny because I make wishes a every opportunity.. an eyelash on the face.. quick make a wish and blow it away. What do I wish for? Well normally that the treatment that I am having is working and that the canSer will go into remission and I can live my life in peace with a bright future. In fact the term I use is to be canSer free. But maybe I should wish for something more positive such as peace, love, happiness, joy, self acceptance and the one that really gets me; peace of mind. That’s what I want to have .. Peace of mind and to let life flow without fear.

There has been something interesting bits in the media today particularly about a young lad called Jack Andraka. Jack is a scientist and innovator.  And his work on creating a simple test for the identification of pancreatic, lung and ovarian cancer is simply amazing.

Here are some of his facts:

-His test is 168 times faster than what is currently available

-It’s 26,000 times less expensive.  That’s not a typo.
-And it’s potentially almost 100% accurate.

Amazing and he is only 15 years old.

Here’s the full article;

I love news like this.. So exciting… there has to be cure for every single canSer… there just has to be… but as it seems it isn’t going to one thing. It will be combination of things. Someone needs to look at it differently and realise there will never a drug or treatment that will cure everyone with the same canSer because we are all different. Unique. Plus having the will to live. That’s a biggy.

So today is Pancake Day and I am so looking forward to my tea! I’m having gluten and wheat free pancakes using buckwheat flour with nut milk, and dressed with lemon, cinnamon and maybe a little agave. Mmmmm.

Today is my last day of chemo for another week-Woohoo!

I hope the Bear hurries home!
