A Post Christmas Post...Good Tidings from The Palais!

Hello Dhaaarlings...

There is cause for celebration...

First thing this morning...
 Princess took the Empress to visit her GP to receive the verdict of pre Christmas scans and tests...

Well darlings... The news is spectacular!

The tumour identified is BENIGN!

There is no further evidence of a primary lesions (Cancer) anywhere throughout her system!

It is such a relief for all of us... Particularly the Empress...

Just a referral to an orthopaedic consultant for a second opinion and discussion of treatment options (if any) and future management...

We spent the past few days having a wonderful time with family and a succession of good friends calling in over the Christmas break. 
Fabulous food, Champagne, and much merriment was had by all...

The Empress and I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you wonderful bloggy friends...
For your kind words of support, love, thoughts and prayers over the past few days... your kindness has been a blessing to us both.

The Empress is a woman of very firm and unwavering faith and has not been phased  either way by the outcome. Her strength staggers me sometimes...

The GP commented today on how he was taken aback by her initial reaction to the news that she may have cancer... as her reaction was one of almost "No nonsense" relief at the time. 

"Well it's better to know what is happening... Just so I know what it is that I'm dealing with"....

And today's response to the Dr's comment...

"What were you expecting? I wasn't about to become a blithering idiot... I have better things to do than wail about in a doctors rooms on the news that I might or might not have cancer... Besides, I have God in my life and either way... He's got it sorted!

 I'm in a win/ win situation"

I can't say that I'm not relieved at the news nor can I say that I am surprised at the Empresses reaction...

She is and has always been.... a remarkable woman...

I hear corks popping as we speak darlings....

I'd best be lining up the glasses... Please.. Won't you join us?
