Nell: You didn’t very sleep well last night, did you? I heard you walking around upstairs.
Me: I’m afraid I got myself into a bit of a state after yesterday and ended up reading.
Nell: It’s perfectly understandable. You’re bound to get overwhelmed now and again.
Me: It was lovely to look out at the view this morning though.
Me: The early morning mist was absolutely magical rolling in across the fields. We’re so lucky to live where we do.
Nell: Yes, we are.
Me: I will never take it for granted.
Nell: I know. So, we should update everyone on your visit to the hospital yesterday.
Me: Yes. I saw the consultant who confirmed that it is malignant melanoma as far as she can tell.
Me: They couldn’t take it out there and then so I am booked in for surgery on Thursday morning.
Me: They will cut it out and send it away for testing.
Nell: You may need further surgery after that.
Me: Yes. It can take up to four weeks to get the results.
Nell: And we will just have to get through that.
Me: I’m finding the waiting so hard.
Nell: I know you are but there is nothing we can do.
Me: Kev is being wonderful but even he had a moment of fear in the car on our way home yesterday.
Nell: Of course he is frightened. He loves you. We all do.
Me: I need to say thank you again for all the kind messages of support. They really do mean so much to me. I read every one.
Me: I’m afraid I lost my inner warrior last night, Nell.
Nell: Only temporarily. She’s back now. We can do this. Together.
Me: Yes. Sorry.
