it's been a while since I checked in here and a lot has happened. Hubby lost his job in September then was diagnosed with bowel cancer 6 weeks later. He had almost all of his colon removed and they got all the cancer so they don't need him to have chemo or radiation. At the same time he was in hospital my period came back after almost 10 months after finishing zoladex and tamoxifen.
I broke the radius bone at my wrist the day before Valentines and needed to have surgery to insert a plate and screws. Hubby got offered a new job with really good future prospects contracting to the government.
We also found out on the 28th Feb that I'm pregnant! I was putting my lack of period down to stress and the op but it turned out to be early pregnancy symptoms.
I'm almost 7 weeks and will be due late October. We were completely taken by surprise as we had both been feeling unwell for a while so we weren't actively trying too hard this month and only tried once. Hubby is very pleased with himself about that.
We were worried about the effect all the drugs etc I was taking for the pain for my arm would have (morphine and ketamine in emergency, a general for the op and a week of regular panadien and ibuprofen) but the doctor I saw reassured us that there was minimal risk.
We're still in a bit of disbelief over it all but very happy.
