Kate's Blog

Follow me if you will as I try to navigate through the ups and downs of my world.

I'm writing this blog to help me make sense of all that has happened - from my diagnosis with non-Hodgkins lymphoma while pregnant with my third child in May 2008
, through to my reflections on chaotic family life as I try to pick up the pieces of my life again.

The kids are so small, and I'm working hard to keep us all safe and to stay in remission.

Stay with me - it won't be all doom and gloom I promise!

Special Arm Movements

The baby and I have been dancing. She wobbled around the room nodding her head and doing her special dancing arm action. This action tells the world she's dancing in case they're not sure! She does her special arm movement when she hears a siren, music on the radio, chimes on the clock and even today in the lift as it ground between floors. So you have to imagine a much magnified arm movement when she is actually in a room full of dancing babies! When the music slowed and everyone lay down on pieces of material to be pulled around by their parents, she lay with such a beautiful expression on her face looking up at me as I tugged her along. I guess it was because I'd had such a tough week but I was transported for a moment back to looking at her tiny newborn body in the incubator - and I couldn't believe how far we'd come. Onwards... Onwards....
