Almost at the halfway point.

In 2 days time we will be half way through Dads treatment. We are all trying to help but it is really hard to help anyone going through such strong treatment that makes them feel so terrible. The radiotherapy is hurting him like hell already and the thought of a further week as an in-patient hooked up to the chemo bag is getting him very low. We are finding humour in the dumbest places, any smile or laugh is regarded as triumph. For any of us.
Obviously, mum is baring the brunt of it all and I am trying to make sure I’m there for her, even if it’s just hugging her whilst we both sob. Today, when they returned from hospital I took her out again and took her shopping. It was only to get curtains for a newly vacant cottage but it felt beautifully ‘normal’. She seemed to appreciate the normality too and looked much brighter than she has done for days.
This post started out to be about something altogether jollier but this just kind of poured out instead. Sorry about that x

    All the very best to you and your family especially your dear Dad.I will light a candle for him in Truro Cathedral,not because I am very religious but because I do believe in good vibrations . Love is so important and you are a great comfort for your Mum who has to keep her spirits up.

    I can't imagine. You sound pretty grounded, and I am sure you are a wonderful support.

  4. I'm so sorry, I only just read this post (and you mentioned this one yesterday). Stay strong, you. And for those days that you can't and it beats you down, and you need a shoulder outside of your amazing family, you know where to come. Love you loads. Thinking of you all x
