Hi everyone,

I am an oldy here but have not been on for a while... I just wanted to drop in and say hello to everyone... Just wanted to let you know what is going on in my life....
My name is Penny for those who do not know me... I have Lupus, RA. and non hodgkins lymphoma... among other things...
I am still undergoing chemo And Retuxan... I was in the hospital on thursday for treatments... I am doing ok...Still fighting and kicking...
I have a new reason to fight.. Our first grandchild was born a few weeks ago... Her name is Abigail Eva and she is beautiful...being a grandmother is everything and more than people have told me...
Our daughter Holly has just got engaged.... So this mom is very happy and has a purpose to even get better... not that I didn't before...With all my wonderful family and friends...
I have been keeping myself very busy with work and volunteer work at the church...
I miss you all and hope to catch up with you soon...
Take care everyone.... love to you all..

Love Penny

Hello Penny

I am glad to hear that your spirit remains indomitable despite all the trials you face. Congratulations on your granddaughter ! Such a blessing and joy I know.

You probably realise I have been back in the UK for a couple of years now and I sleep like a log so I am rarely in chat after 6/7 PM your time.

Bye for now !
Hugs
Clare

Hi Penny :wavesmile: It's good to hear from you again.

Congratulations and welcome to little Abigail! You must be so proud, no doubt she is lucky to have you both as grandparents.

Glad to hear you are still kicking and fighting your illnesses with the gusto you have always displayed. My nephew (26) was diagnosed late last year with NHL and is currently undergoing chemo :( but like you he is a very positive person and that counts for a lot.

Take care and don't be a stranger.

PS what's this about being an old lady :p

love
Lily

Hello and thank you for all the wonderful replies... I miss everyone so much... and it was so nice to hear from all of you...
I have been forced to slow down a bit this week... as I had to have my heel injected with cortisone and my elbow... I am not supposed to be using my hand but I just can't help myself... Just for a few minutes... I wanted to check things out here...

Take care everyone.

Love Penny
