Will there be any follow up about the fact that youd been concerned about this rash for a while and been told it was nothing?

I just saw this, JRA - glad to read you're OK and so sorry you've had a scare.  I really respect your contributions on EB and it seems so unfair for this kind of thing to happen to such a lovely, decent person.  Hoping it all clears up and stays away for good.

Update: Saw breast surgeon again today, the multi disciplinary team have said that Radio therapy is recommended. It probably wont start until early Jan, but  will only know that when I see Radiotherapy specialist.

Just an update now I have dates. My "measurement" scan for the radio is the 2nd, and then I start on the 9th.  Pretty upset that it means we finish our holiday 2 weeks early, I am so not wanting to go back to town and reality.

I now I have my first work booked for the 5th of Feb (I don't work over the summer holidays anyway). And oddly although not looking forward to going back to town, having that booked gives me a feeling of reality, normality and stability. It is my fave course to give, so that also helps.

the only positive is that I have had SO MUCH time I have done heaps of cross stitch. I didn't need to take time off, but hard to disappear for doctors appointments when giving training. (The colours of the photo don't do the x-stitch justice)

That's beautiful JRA.

I am so happy for the positive outcome to surgery. I hope you have a happy, relaxing Christmas and New Year

Love the cross stitch. I had one big one I was in the middle of when I lost of hand dexterity and it got a lot less relaxing to do. I have a little bird one I tried not so long ago but it was just frustrating. I have a lap stand that I bought and never got to use if you are interested. It was reasonably expensive so I never got rid of it, just kept waiting to find it a good home. You are also welcome to all my old threads and hoops etc. :)

Which course will you teach?

Well I am four treatments down now, and eleven to go. It really has been a breeze so far, apparently the tiredness takes a while to hit.

But have had lots of time while up in town without the family to get on to my next x-stitch, which I need to show off!

That’s a nice update. Gosh you must have great eyesight and steady hands to do that cross-stitch.
