Not such a Good Day!

Hi Everyone,

I am writing this on behalf of Tvman who wanted to let you know he will be absent from the Forum for a bit.

Mrs T. Sent away the Bowl Screening Kit they send every two years. She got a phonecall to say further tests were necessary because blood was found in the sample. They arranged a Scope but it had to be cancelled because they all had Covid. It was rearranged for the other day and afterwards the doctor diagnosed bowel cancer.

As yet they have not mentioned what stage but there will be a meeting on Wednesday to discuss what comes next. Tvman will therefore be going to the usual initial appointments to support his wife, the way she has been supporting him, so his mind will be on his family rather than the Forum.

Of course it is devastating news for the family, I myself was shocked when I heard. I'm sure all our thoughts and best wishes are with them.


Take Care, love Annette xxx
