Haven’t been on for a while so thought I’d update what’s been going on.
I’ve been back at work for a month now. I’m in a new job which is really good and keeping me busy. Everyone’s been great and it feels like I’ve never been away. My employers, my boss in particular, were fantastic in the support they provided when I was off, which made my return to work so much easier.
I went to a Sarcoma support group two weeks ago. It was good to see people who have or are experiencing the same illness. It makes you realise you are not alone and that someone does understand!
While I was off work my lovely colleague Liz held a ‘Cake Sale’ in order to raise funds for Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. Liz makes AMAZING cakes and managed to raise a whopping £405. Liz and I went to their fundraising office to take the money and they were so appreciative of it. After gift aid, the total raised from Liz’s cakes and Team McClozzer’s sober January exceeds £2500!!!! This is amazing and I want to say a huge thank you for your support.
I went to see Dr Alam yesterday. She wanted to check my leg after my treatment. It all looks good so don’t need to see her for six months now. My next ‘check up’ and lung xray is at the end of April. Whilst it is scary waiting for each one I am determined to ‘move on’ and live life to the fullest…..starting with a trip away in two weeks. Cheeky, especially as I went to Amsterdam 4 weeks ago 😉
We are celebrating tonight. Its my brothers engagement ‘do’ so he has traipsed down from Edinburgh with 7 Scottish people who are all so excited to party in the hotspot that is Warrington…!!
Have fun and will update again soon.
