Heading Home

As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and so does my short adventure in New York. I'm dropping out of school and heading back to Singapore as my mother has breast cancer. The bright spot is that it hasn't spread to other parts and hopefully, she can make a full recovery after treatment. I'll still try to keep the blog going (definitely need the distraction sometimes!) unless things get really overwhelming. My sincere thanks to everyone for your support so far!

Iris,

So sorry to hear about your mum. But it may not be as bad. Let's hope that it's still at the least dangerous stage.

You're such a good daughter! I know not everyone can give up their plans for their parents.

I hope your mom will get well soon! Since you said it hasn't spread yet so it must be in the earlier stages of cancer. No worries. There's a high chance that it can be cured through either removal/chemo and radiation. Take care girl!!!

Iris dear
I will keep you and your mum in my prayers. Wish all will be well for her. I had recently undergone surgery to remove some breast tissues for biopsy and was blessed with good lab results. So i do know the apprehension when one is in that unfavourable situation. Pls take care & God be with you and all your loved ones at home. *hugz*

hi haru, sorry to hear about your mum's condition but i'm pretty sure the chances of recovery will be gd. Drug discoveries for breast cancer in the early stages are quite advanced now and in the meantime, do take care ya *big big hugs*

Iris! *hugs* having just gone through a cancer scare myself (whereby I had to have a full laparotomy so that the surgeon could take a cyst that was sitting on top of my left ovary, along with that ovary and then do a biopsy on it), please know that my thoughts are with you and your mum.

Maybe we can catch up in Singapore? I'll be there during Christmas time :)

Oh, Iris! I am so sorry. Thoughts and psychic hugs are coming to you and your Mum from the UK. You're being the very finest kind of daughter by putting your plans on hold for your Mum. I hope she has a quick recovery - I'm sure your presence at home will help her a great deal.
