We went to the MHF Global at Hatton at Warwick and had a fab time.
It was my birthday on the Friday and I had so many cards and best wishes it was great.
The weather could have been better but there was so much warmth from my friends it just didn’t matter and we were able to sit around and chat away.
Really having a good time
I had a friend talk to me about the fact she was born and lived on a Blue Asbestos Mine in South Africa and her Father died of Meso and her Mother died of Lung Cancer (that just has to be meso) and she was so worried after what has happened to me that she went to the Doctors to ask for a Scan.
The Doctor has said that as she is showing no Symptoms she will not allow it as its not necessary and that she will go and study the subject as she know little about the condition.
How can that be the right answer –with a history like that– of coarse she is worried.
I have told her to have a private MRI Scan as the money that will cost must be an advantage to put her mind at rest.
She is going to do that.
Another friend has a Cousin who has just been diagnosed so I was able to tell him all I have been through and told him to get his Cousin to read my blog where I hope I can help him with all the info I have collected over this year and a half since I was diagnosed.
Well back to my weekend.
Saturday we walked in a Pumpkin field that was at Hatton Animal Park where they are growing huge Pumpkins for Halloween where the children will carve them out and put candles in.
We had a dog show in the afternoon and Louis was entered which we hoped he would behave.
Behave he did as we walked past the line of dogs and he stood so very quiet as the judges looked the line of dogs over.
he didn’t win but he was a winner to us and we gave him a treat when he went back to the M/Home.
That evening we had an open air concert by an Elvis impersonator and Kenny J who looks like Freddy Star–he is just as hilarious.
We danced the night away and had a really goodnight.
Sunday was a walk by the canal and then back for a walk through the fields with Louis of lead and chasing the ball.
The evening was a quiz night and then more entertainment from Kenny J and dancing just a great time.
Monday we walked Louis with Gerald’s dog Tess and Mo’s dogs so Louis has had a special time with his friends.
He really wasn’t a problem anymore which he really proved when the 2 Jack’s jumped out of the M/Home window and chased him all over the campsite.
Well Tuesday saw us having to say goodbye to everyone as we all returned home to the washing and getting the M/Home ready for this weekend as we are off to Canterbury.
I really have a new lease of life–another chance to enjoy life to the full for a little while longer than I first thought.
