Weekend and Wendy update.

Hey all, Rebecca here.

I am the postie today (if you call it that) as Steve has the man flu.

On the Saturday Steve headed to the Isle of Wight’s BHS with the Beating Bowel Cancer calendars. They made Steve feel very welcome and managed to sell loads in raising money for the charity.


Here are some photos of the day:

While this was going on our family friend Nicky Jones came over to help my nan with the patient haha (I was in London). Thankyou very much Nicky it was really appreciated!

So the update on my mum (Wendy), she is still recovering from the chest infection and has been taking the amoxycillin to help this. Today she has started to drink a protein drink called Ensure Plus chocolate and strawberry flavours yum yum! It’s great that she likes them and we can finally see her getting the needed vitamins.
At the moment she just needs to relax and rest as much as she can so she can fight the chest infection. The nurses are due tomorrow to do the blood tests and a general health check.

Last night, a reader of the blog a lady named Sue dropped by our house to deliver some food for my mum which was really generous of her, so thankyou Sue very thoughtful of you! 🙂

Also, a BIG BIG BIG THANKYOU to everyone who has continued to read the blog. It’s lovely to know there are a lot of people supporting the family and my mum in their own ways. I know it’s been a bit slow recently but hopefully things will get back to normal and I’m sure mum can’t wait to start it up again!
A big thankyou to those who have also brought our calenders, all the money given goes to raising money for Beating Bowel Cancer is amazing! We have raised £6,689.00 that is amazing!! It’s all down to your generousity and support!

  15. I always read the blog in bed but last night I was struggling to keep my eyes open (don’t worry Rebecca it wasn’t that your postie wasn’t exciting enough, I was just running on empty) so I just wanted to say I think the amount of money you have raised is incredible. A lot of people are going to benefit from that and I think what you all do for others is wonderful. xxx

  16. thanks so much for the update Rebecca – your mum’s blogging skills have rubbed off on you! 🙂

    The photos look fantastic and it was so brilliant of Steve to make the trip. Your mum is in my thoughts daily, it’s incredible what she and Steve (and you!) have achieved so thank you. It really means a lot x

  17. Hi Rebecca

    I am helping Beating Bowel Cancer tomorrow selling the brilliant calendars at the High Wycombe BHS. I have just done some research on your amazing mum and I’m sorry to hear that she is back in SM. I spent 4 months in there nearly 5 years ago with a recurrence of bowel cancer; the staff, as you already know, are fabulous but home is much nicer, so I hope she is out again very soon. Please could you pass on my best wishes to her and tell her that I will do my best to sell as many calendars as possible and to raise awareness of this illness. Thankyou – Lu 🙂
