I totally understand that. If we lived in the USA and DH had the same results, that would be what I wished he would decide to do. All the best to you going forward.

Re: Scanxiety - Good thoughts Please

Dear O Stoma Mia, I have been reading about ’possible biopsi and ablation/surgery’. Suddenly I remembered the feeling that I wished I had known about Cimetidine when DH had his surgeries (did not know/understand until after DH’s surgeries in 2016).

Re: O/T...Post Your Pics Here

Hi peanut, yes a lot of history in that old house. She does have her own kiln on premise and makes a lot of lovely ceramic. This ‘small room’, on the photo, we believe originally was an old big(!) bake oven. Thank you for well wishes <3

Hubby & I were invited to an event at our lovely French neighbors house this evening. Music, cheese and vine tasting. These clay-‘towers’ with candles in them, are made by our neighbor.
I think it looked gorgeous !! :-)
