Today my doctor told me my white blood sells are low. Hopefully my next test in a couple of weeks will be better. I am so looking forward to xmas. The chemo is in tablet form now, my hair has not fallen out again and I feel mostly well. Tomorrow a group of us will be making cuddle bears for children that are taken to hospital by ambulance. hugs Heather

Good news you bring Heather, the chemo keeps the white cells down, making you susceptible to other things, but sounds as though the worst is over. You'll have a head full of curls before you know it. good to hear how you are doing/Lillian

great to see you here again, and you are feeling well most of the time.
I think making the teddies will be lovely, the children will have so much comfort by them. Hang in there, hugs/love gerry

Hi Heather, so glad to see you are on the improve and that your hair hasn't fallen out this time. What a wonderful gift you are making for those children. They will feel so comforted by having those little bears to cuddle when they are distressed. Christmas is always a wonderful season and I'm so happy that you are here to celebrate it with the girls and the rest of your family. Love Chris

Gosh I wish it was, it all fell out for a year at least. It now has curls and is quite short. It was hard losing my hair, but it is worth it to have a chance of life. Thankyou, it is my family and friends as yourself that are the special ones lots of cuddles and hugs Heather

Heather, I remember to say your name in my prayers. I'm so happy you are feeling better and what a trouper you are to keep on helping others when you are fighting your own battle. My hat is off to you, sweet friend.

It seems like half the town has had the flue this year, I also managed to catch it, even though I had the flue needle. I am over it now, the doctor said to have plenty of rest and I should be fine. Yes tomorrow will be fun, I have a simple design that should take about one hour for each bear. Then I will tie a bright ribbon around their necks. hugs Heather
