Dear Cuties:

I just received these two towels from our dear Cute friend Chris Pennifold.

They are visiting my part of the world.

Unfortunately I am not able to meet them as I am going to my friends's daughter's 50th Birthday when Trev and Chris are back in Vancouer.

Thank you so much Chris, they are beautiful and of course my favourite animal, the Koala.

I didn't post anything, but thought I would let you all know that I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on my left side. I decided to have a double mastectomy. That was done on Feb 26th. I had no problems with the surgery, but did get an infection. I did not have to have Chemo or radiation, but decided to do 4 treatments of Chemo as an extra precaution. I just had round #3 and #4 will be in 3 weeks. I have not had many side effects and am feeling great.

I do visit Cute daily and look at all your wonderful projects and messages. I love to leave flowers to you all.

Wonderful gift from a wonderful lady. Wishing all the best and prayers sent your way-Where would we be without our Heavenly Father?? This is a great site to be able to go to and even ask for prayers and know all these ladies are actually praying. I am a breast cancer survivor since 1991--stage 2-3--had chemo and radiation. I prayed for a great understanding and intelligent Dr. from surgeon to hematologist and felt they truly gave me what I needed.

Jerri, I could have sworn that I had posted on this thread, but apparently I was wrong. I have been praying for you and your complete remission and speedy recovery.
Your towels from Chris are lovely. She is very thoughtful and I just know that the two of you are disappointed at not being able to meet up. That would have won the prize for the longest distance of Cuties coming together.
I hope that it is very soon that you are finished with your treatments and can continue with your life without interruptions. Love and hugs!

You really are a trooper Jerri. Hope you continue to get better. Sorry that you could not meet Chris and Trevor.

Jerri, I am so glad to hear you say how great you feel. I wish you good health and complete remission. Your towels are lovely and thoughtful too of Chris to remember what you like. She is always very generous and thoughtful.

Thank you Kim:
I really can't complain on the last 6 months. I have not had a lot of side effects, just a lot of appointments, but 1 more treatment and I can get my life back on track.

Good morning Jerri, Trev and I are in our motel room at Kamloops just filling in time till we go downstairs to catch the bus to the train station. We are so impressed with the organisation of The Rocky Mountaineer group.
So happy that you received the towels so fast. When I posted them on Monday they said you wouldn’t get them till today (Wednesday).
Have a wonderful time with your friends. Love Chris

Thank you again, Chris. I am so happy you are having a wonderful time, in my beautiful Province.
I was surprised to receive them so fast as well.
I am looking forward to getting away, even if it is only for a few days. I am getting anxious to be free of all the appointments and get back to living a normal life again.
