As ever, thank you All for your thoughtfulness & compassion. The results of Jane's tests were the best we could have had, under the circumstances. The tumours are still no larger & the cancer has not spread any further than the previous scans revealed. She is on a plane to Dubai as I type this, returning to the UK mid-May to continue with her Maintenance Programme. The Royal Marsden Hospital really are taking such good care of her. Jane & all of us have to live with the thought that the cancer could 'flare up' at any time, but, for the moment at least, we are all doing our level best to live our lives as normally as possible. Ann has a landmark birthday coming up soon which we will be celebrating in Dubai with all the Family...I know they're planning something special, but even I'm not privy to the details!
                                    Much Love to You All,
                                                                     Nigel & Ann

Jane has the results of some more scans this week. If everything is ok & her Oncologist is happy, she will go to Dubai for about a month, after which, she will return to the UK for further monitoring. As & when I have news, I'll post immediately, but with these calmer waters, the sails set & the barometer rising, we have an opportunity to sit back & enjoy the view & savour the air,

About that dinner: I once declined the opportunity to dine, at extra cost, at a celebrity chef's restaurant on a cruise ship. Many people in my tour group saw it as a once-in-a lifetime opportunity. I said I was very much enjoying the included meals in the regular dining room and didn't think the extra cost could possibly be justified. Or, as I put it, "Just how much better can the celebrity chef make a steak, lobster, or any other food taste?"

Nigel and Ann, I think you are wise to step back even though that must be hard to do. Jane must know that you love her and will be there whenever she needs you. And I'm sure the Mudcat community will be here for you whenever you need us. Continuing prayers.

You all will continue in my thoughts.

Got a tree full of grackles, sparrows, starlings, a pigeon, three mourning doves (which have got to be the most laid-back birds I ever saw), chickadees, downy and hairy woodpeckers, nuthatch but no partridge, 'cause it ain't a pear tree. Both Canadian and snow geese are back, and the blue jay. The cardinals have disappeared--about six weeks back, sun's shining, river's flowing and the wind ain't doing much to speak of.

Learning to live with (Jane's) cancer is similar in some respects to learning how to 'let go' as your Children work their way through school, go to college/uni & eventually 'fly the nest' to marry, seek work or just experience independence...stand on their own two feet.
         With the spread of Jane's cancer curtailed for the present, Ann & I have decided to 'take a step backwards' thereby giving Jane & her Family the independence to live their lives as they choose...we've been so closely involved (at times, probably too close) since January. Now is as good a time as any to 'take a back seat', whilst always waiting in the wings, so that we can respond quickly if anything 'unexpected' happens. We have discussed this with Jane & she feels too that it is the right course of action for all concerned. 'Lessons in Life'...you just never stop learning.

Pete, Surrey is the countryside through which we drove...plenty to see & do.

Hello Sandra...Jane really has 'grasped the nettle'. Her PMA has touched us all in a positive way...brave girl.

ChanteyLass, aspects of the meal were delicious, but overall, I was somewhat underwhelmed! The restaurant is owned by a VERY well known celebrity chef. A case of 'Talking the talk', but not quite 'Walking the walk!' However, nine of us crammed round a table intended for eight made up for any food shortcomings!

Welcome back Bruce...I trust You & your Good Lady are fit 'n' fine. Jane is doing remarkably well, all things considered. She is allowed to drive, so she can get out & about a bit. Over the Easter weekend, we were all able to take a short walk in the countryside...weather was good & the views were great. Ann & I are off into Central London today to see one of Jane's friends who is taking a break from Dubai. A nice lunch together in Covent Garden.

Janie, I agree, 'Now' is where everything happens. I would want to add to that: "Reflect on the past, it's a treasure trove of experience. Be prepared for a future, on the assumption that there will be one, even if it's only tomorrow"

ChanteyLass, pace yourself...get done what needs to be done & make sure there's always some time remaining, just for yourself (in or out of the shower!)

I am reading your posts every day but my life is going to be more hectic than usual for several weeks as it does at least twice a year with some good stuff, so I have less time to write.

We set sail on January 12th...it's now 3rd april & we've crested 400 posts. Truly amazing. Truly amazing too, that Ann & I have been allowed to garner so many loyal & compassionate Friends. I'm feeling somewhat over-emotional as I type...had one of my own doctor's appointments this morning (muscle stuff that is annoying/irritating, but NOT life-threatening). Jane's situation came into the conversation & I broke down in the consulting room. My Doctor allowed me to sit there & take all the time I needed to settle myself. She sat there, calm & steady, not saying much, but what she did say was absolutely appropriate...kind, gentle words that calmed me. We over ran the allotted time considerably, but at no time did I get the feeling that my Doctor wanted me out. I could leave when I felt ok to do so. It's been quite a morning!

Ann has been staying with Jane these past two weeks. By all accounts, they have enjoyed every moment spent together. Jane is allowed to drive, so apart from shopping, they have also been able to explore some of the lovely Surrey countryside. We all met for lunch yesterday (Sunday). We chatted non-stop & there was plenty of laughter. It's good to see & hear Jane laughing...laughter & Jane are synonymous. When she received her initial diagnosis in January, there was precious little to laugh at. Things are not so desperate at the moment, our Ship has entered calmer waters, but stay close...check in when you can...post the occasional "Hi, I'm still here" type of thing...it all contributes to the overall support you have provided so generously & selflessly,
