I suddenly got the urge to check in here and see what was happening.
I have just spent the last few days designing invitations for my mother's 80TH BIRTHDAY PARTY in May.
Aged 75 she was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue and genuinely didn't think she would see 76. She is one true hero.
I can't pretend its easy, she has lost all her teeth as a result of the radiation and she struggles to eat - but she is living her life and maintaining her (albeit reduced) weight.
She still goes sequence dancing twice a week and has invited all her dancing buddies to her party.
Dad has also been a hero, looking after her every inch of the way - he's 83 !!
