Note to my followers

Hi all!

Sorry for the lack of updates the last few weeks and the lack of comments on all your wonderful blogs.

The lump on my tummy that I previously mentioned in another post turned out to be a metastasis of a rare type of bone cancer called a chondrosarcoma. It has nothing to do with my previous breast cancer, it's an entirely different disease alltogether. Sarcomas of different kinds only affect about a 150 people in Norway every year. I've spent the last few weeks going through various consultations and tests, and now I'm waiting for the results of them. This type of cancer is only curable by surgery, chemo and radiation don't work on it. If it has spread too much, there's nothing they can do. I'll get the final conclusion by the end of this week.

I've been so tired that I simply have lacked the energy to update my blog, but I'll try and get around to it shortly.


  1. Oh no...not more cancer. I'm so sorry. Let us know if there is anything we can do States side. Couple thousand miles between us but know that we care and are here for you. We are family as the song goes!

  2. Hello. Gosh I was hoping that it was nothing to worry about - have been thinking of you. No wonder you have no time to blog. Not sure what to say - nothing much helps - other than, fingers crossed, look on the bright side, might all be OK and even if it's not...we'll all be here hoping the very best for you. If you get some energy - buy some new shoes - as if there are few things better in life than new shoes ;-) I sound flippant I know, I am disguising my worry... Take the best care, Lou x

  3. Oh no.

    I am so very sorry to hear this.

    I'll be praying for you.

  4. My dear - I am so sorry to hear this - I have been wondering and hoping since you last posted about the lumps on your tummy... And to think that you had to fight to get a second opinion and to get them to treat you seriously and quickly makes me feel so angry. I really hope that they will be able to operate. I am thinking of you and will be praying. Sarah x

  5. i am so sorry you are having to go through this...

    but.. you are most def in my thoughts and i'm not sure if you pray or not.. but if you do.. know you are in mine...

    keep us informed... wishing the VERY best for you...

  6. Thank you all so incredibly much for your kind comments, thoughts, mails and prayers.

    The specialist from the hospital called a couple of hours ago, and he said he thinks they can cure me. It has only spread to tissue and not to internal organs or the skeleton.

    I'm so relieved I can't stop crying. These past weeks and the wait for the results have been agonising!!!

    I'll have to go through surgeries at the end of July or the beginning of August at the latest, but he said it was totally ok for me to go on holiday with my friends first.

    So tomorrow I'm off to Croatia on the Mediterranean coast with a group of friends until July 13th. Hopefull I'll be back in good spirits with a lot of interesting photos!

    Hugs all around,
    :) :) :)

  7. Hope you have a fun and relaxing vacation! Take lots of pictures!

  8. Oh, this is such shocking and sad news! You might have gotten your results back already and I hope they are not too devastating. Wishing you courage and lots of support. xxx

  9. Thank goodness for that call! Hugs and good vibes my dear! Have a great time in Croatia!

  10. Thinking of you darling. Hope you're enjoying the time away xoxoxoxo

  11. Oh I am so pleased to hear that they will be able to operate... hope you are having a wonderful time in Croatia x

  12. I am so very sorry to hear that.. you rest up and know that we are thinking of you...

    Take care.

    Hope you feel better...SP

  14. Darling Sniff... it's taken me a while to catch up and couldn't believe it when I read this post. Obviously I was much happier to read your catch up comment that it can be cured - you must have been overjoyed. It really does put the niggling stupid everyday worries into perspective. I hope your holiday was wonderful and that you had a well earned break. Sending much love, hugs and all the positive vibes I can grab xxxx

  15. Så utrolig tung beskjed å få, jeg føler med deg! Håpet at du ikke skulle måtte få denne beskjeden. Men det vikitge er at det kan behandles, og du er en sterk person som har gått igennom tøffe tak før, så du vil klare dette! Jeg håper at du fortsetter å være så postiv som du er og fokuserer på mange andre ting som interesserer deg og som du kan holde styrke tankene dine med. Masse positive tanker sendes din retning!!!
