Nell: So, when do you think you’ll be back from the hospital?
Me: I’m not sure, Nell.
Nell: Are you certain you don’t need me to come with you?
Me: No. Kev’s back now so he can take me and I prefer knowing you’re keeping an eye on everyone.
Nell: Who are you seeing this time?
Me: It’s my cancer check up with Sophie. She’s going to check the scar is healing and look for any other suspicious moles or marks.
Nell: How are you feeling?
Me: Very nervous, if I’m honest. There are a couple of moles I wouldn’t have thought twice about in the past but now I’m worried they might be cancerous.
Nell: It’s completely normal to worry. Anyone would, especially with your history. Your friends in the cancer group all feel the same way.
Me: Yes. I shall just have to unleash that inner warrior again.
Nell: Exactly. You need to see this check up as a positive thing. They are keeping an eye on you and making sure you are safe and well.
Me: You’re right. Thank goodness for the NHS. It’s always better to know rather than imagine.
Nell: It is. You may have nothing to worry about.
Me: I hope so but I’m preparing myself that they might decide to remove some of them to be on the safe side.
Nell: If they do then we will deal with it just like we did last time.
Me: It really helps knowing you have my back.
Nell: Always, we all do.
Me: Thank you.
Nell: Now, should you be passing a Barks and Spencer we wouldn’t say no to a few treats. Their sandwiches are particularly delicious.
Me: Don’t tell Poppy that.
Nell: Poppy’s choice is smoked salmon and cream cheese.
Me: Right. Sorry.
