Throwback Thursday!

Hello friends

Throwback's all over Facebook, Twitter and more.
Urban dictionary tells me it is:
"When you put a picture from a "while" ago on your social media sites"
so I thought I would have a "crafty" Throwback Thursday!

I posted this scrapbook page on Thursday 4 June last year
when it appeared in Scrapbook Magazine.
A geometrical layout with a handy tag for journalling inserted at the side.
The dies featured are FluttersSprigs and Blooms Four - all in stock!
Oh and the photo of Elliott - wow he has changed! 

Yesterday we were back at the Royal Marsden and firstly...good news - 
Elliott's CT scan came back clear, no changes to his tumour - such a relief.

Secondly...I think we still have a battle on our hands regarding the open sided
MRI scanner.  No decision has been made and we should hear within
the next few days but they seem adamant to go down the route of more
psychological counselling because they feel this is best in the long run...

There is so much I could say, it was a long meeting and we barely got a word in(!)
 but I will wait and see. 

As always, thanks for your kind words and wishes and mostly for listening.

Take care friends and please stop by tomorrow for FDD :)

Lesley Thomas said...

Great news on Elliott's scan, but it's sad that you barely got a word in, because that means 'they' were barely listening to you. What a shame.

Hello Christine
So glad the CT Scan was clear!
Sorry they were so up themselves, and not let you get a word in! sometimes these people forget they are talking to human beings!
I am 71 and get spoken to like I am a child, and have no intelligence at all.
I have to stop, and tell them to start again without the condescending attitude! Sure makes 'em sit up and listen!
Fingers crossed with the MRI scanner Christine!
Take care
Love Marg

Hi Christine, I am so pleased for Elloitts good news. It's very difficult to be in the position Elloitt is in, needing the scans, yet not wanting to go through the trauma of the earlier ones. Plus now he has "come of age" and not a child anymore. On their side, I am pretty sure they don't want to leave him with very negative trauma left and not over come this dread of the machine. I will hold him and you his mum in my prayers until this is a distant memory. X Ros

Great news about the CT scan. I hope you can get the MRI business sorted out

Maureen Killen said...

Hello Christine,
What good news for Elliott and you. Psychological counselling my bum. You are his mother and you know your son better than they do, so continue fighting for what you believe will be in his best interest, and in the meantime I'll pray - a little extra help never comes in wrong.
Love Maureen xxx

Hello Christine
Brilliant news about the tumour, not so great news about the scan. I hope it gets resolved quickly for both your sakes.
I love the scrapbook page, boy Elliott has changed.
Enjoy your day. Not much fun at work I know but a necessary evil.

Hi Christine,
Such good news about the CT scan results! I am thrilled, you and Elliott must be so relieved !
Where has that that young lad gone,?! He looks so different , it's not until you look back that you realise just how much he has grown, it's just unbelievable, but amazing at the same time!
Love and hugs all round,
