Terminal cancer patient Dame Deborah James says she’s doing things “one day at a time” as she enjoys an opera trip.

The 40-year-old, accompanied by husband Sebastien Bowen, went to one of her “favorite places” at Glyndebourne Opera House, East Sussex, to enjoy a performance of La Boheme.

Podcast host, Deborah, used her ‘Bowel Babe’ Instagram account on Saturday night to share some snaps of the day and includes snaps of herself in the same place for 5 years before – right after she found out she was battling the disease.

“Another day, another excuse to spend an exhausting half of my time getting dressed to go to one of my favorite places! @glyndebourne see #la Boheme “But totally worth it,” she declared.

“Thank you @glyndebourne to be lovely and welcoming tonight – doing all of this in a wheelchair is definitely a new challenge to learn! I can’t believe I was last here 5 years ago this week – scared, newly diagnosed, just trying to do the same thing I’m doing now – doing everything once a day!! (See story).

“Anyone who has followed me for many years knows that the English season is my favorite time of year, hence why all @inthestyle Costumes are named after the event! So I think my goal is just to try to fit a few while I’m still kicking around and maybe! ”

The mother-of-two admits she feels harder and more tired as time goes on, but her personality is completely intact as she jokes about ‘raising two fingers’ because of her illness .

Deborah continued: “But don’t be delusional! I’ve had the experience! I’ve found that it takes me more time to prepare and organize to go than it takes me to actually stretch anywhere! Getting dressed is exhausting, medical arrangements are exhausting, moving more, traveling, wondering where your mood is – it’s all real!

“But then that feeling of doing something you didn’t think was possible, putting on makeup, putting on new shoes (finally the right size for those massively swollen feet!), with a sunny smile – and that’s it! it’s worth it! It’s a two-finger “live while dying” cheeky way to the end! Have a nice weekend everyone xxxxx.”

Within four hours, Dame’s post had racked up more than 80,000 likes and 3,000 responses, with one user commenting: “You’re amazing. Keep up the big C and share these with two fingers. Your inspirational post as you are helping so many people. Love you and your family always.”
