Its my dads 60th birthday today so firstly I wanted to say a BIG Happy Birthday. I’ve obviously got him a present although I think he got the best present for his 59th birthday….
This time last year I was sat in a lovely room on the private ward at Broadgreen eagerly awaiting for my second and final operation to remove the last speck of sarcoma from my left lung. I was scheduled for an 11am operation but this was delayed to the afternoon so my dad spent his birthday at the hospital. Anxious. Stressing. Waiting. But it all paid off and I was wheeled out after a successful operation performed by the amazing Dr Shackcloth.
Honestly, I can’t believe I’ve had a year, yes a full year, treatment free since I was diagnosed in October 2012. That’s certainly cause for extra celebrations tonight at my dads birthday meal….well it would be but I’m never drinking again…. (Yep you’ve all heard it before!!)
