Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart

I wanted to join in with this weeks Reasons To Be Cheerful, while I’m stuck in hospital isolation and missing my girls and my husband, because I think its important to realise there are many people worse off than me. With only a dodgy mobile connection and an old phone, I can just about get this blog to work!

Reasons to be cheerful:

1. I can officially say I’m a danger to society and I can make radioactive farts! (Well it amused me anyway!)

2. Some kind former patient left me a creme egg! Cheers!

3. I am now a FINALIST in the BiB Awards (Brilliance in Blogging) in the Inspire category. Thankyou hugely to everyone who both nominated and voted for me! It’s a huge honour.

4. I am going to be LIVE ON AIR FROM ISOLATION on BBC Radio Gloucestershire (1:15pm today) talking about my radiotherapy and the #S2S2D blog hop. Sarah from Mum of Three World will also be on air talking about it, after recording her interview with them yesterday!

5. I have a wealth of emotional support from bloggers and tweeters, as well as friends and family.

6. There is a FREE TO USE phone in isolation! And I have a weak, dodgy unreliable and slow mobile internet connection on my old phone… So I can read some of my tweets!

7. Just before coming into hospital, I found out the payment plans were complete on two of my long standing store card debts… Meaning they are paid in full and a weight off my mind!

8. I can now eat all the things I love again! No more miserable low iodine diet until my scan in 6months. Dairy, eggs, bread… I missed you! The party is in my mouth!

9. I’ve raised almost £400 so far in Race For Life sponsorship, for Cancer Research UK.

10. Things might be tough right now, I miss my girls like crazy, but I am KICKING CANCERS ASS! There are people further down the hall, less fortunate than me, I’m one of the lucky ones.

    Fantastic Emma! I am in awe of you every time I read….you are so strong and way stronger than the cancer. Absolutely thrilled that you made it through to the BiBs finals – you so deserve to be there 🙂 x

  3. Anne Wallwin says:

    well done for such a lovely positive post at such a difficult time. you can’t help but be moved by your situation. when you’re fit and healthly again you need to get your cancer blogs published, as they would inspire anyone. Then maybe you’ll get rich and can retire!

  4. Mummy Glitzer says:

    I am so sad for you that you are going through this but you’re positivity is AMAZING and such an inspiration. Certainly every time I get down about my worsening health and worsening housing situation, I think of you and remind myself of what YOU are going through. I can honestly say hand on heart that I draw so much inspiration and energy from you. xx

    Love this! You more than deserve your Bibs nomination. You are an inspiration. Glad you’re managing to see the upsides of your time in isolation. The thought of being away from my girls is agony, so I really really feel for you. But you’re right. You’re there to kick this bloody thing’s arse and get back to your girls healthy and strong. And you will do just that. Stay strong, and we’ll stand here beside you x

    So, so cool that you’re first post is being thankful – that is so powerful, breaking the power of negativity and fear. So wonderful. Doesn’t make it any less tough i’m sure. Hopefully you’re getting loads of time to read, reflect and think about blog posts! Your OH was a hero and wrote a fab little blog post on your blog. All power to him. And I love that phrase ‘the party is in my mouth’…. Sx PS Can you send us link to the radio interview?

    You’ve been an inspiration to many Emma. This post is just awesome and you sounded so sprightly in your radio interview. You must be exhausted. So chuffed you’re back home now, at least it means you can count down the days until you can hug your girls xxx
