Today hasn't been a good day....
I received news about 2 of my closest friends, whom I also work with.

First there is the lovely Lolly, a nickname I gave her 5 yrs ago and shes now known as nothing else, in the past few months she has had quite alot of time off work with headaches and as she calls them the wobbles where she would lose her balance, quite frightening really and the doctors could not find what was wrong.

She saw ENT and various specialists and was told only 2 weeks ago that she would probably have to live with it!!.....but she was recalled last week to the hospital and had more tests and told me that her brain was too low causing her imbalance and the surgeons were meeting on Friday to discuss treatment which would probabaly be the cutting out of 4cms square of her skull to allow the flow of fluid and then there is the

Gorgeous Marie who I have known for over 25 yrs and a more genuine kind funny lady you could not meet we just cry with laughter almost everyday she is such dear dear friend.

She had the all clear from Breast Cancer a while back and recently went for her routine mammogram, well she was recalled to the hospital today where they have taken tests and will know the results on Wednesday.

Hearing this news about 2 of my favourite people is devastating though now I have got over the initial shock I am trying to put a positive spin on things ....and as I have said elsewhere writing it all down does actually help, though I don't know why......

I will be praying for you 2 very special people God bless and protect you both xxx
