Just Another Shitty Day In Paradise…!

February 25, 2010
OK…I just thought that I’d write a brief ‘update’ blog, being as I haven’t written anything for a while, and I haven’t commented much on anyone else’s either.
This is turning out to be one shitty week…!! 
There…’nuff said…I won’t bore you with the details.
First of all, I would just like to apologise to my dear friends who are probably wondering what’s happened to me…and second, I want to thank my very dear friends for their love and patience and concern and stuff.  You know what I mean.
Last weekend, my sister let me know that Mum was back in hospital again, so I went to visit her on Monday.  On Tuesday, my cold started to take hold, so I decided not to go and visit on Wednesday.
Due to my computer playing up, I did not get the timesheet in in time, as I had to fax it when I got to work, so we are all a week down in our wages…and for this I am to attend a disciplinarary later this week.
On Thursday, while I was at work, my sister let me know that Mum’s scan results showed that she has cancer, and it’s fairly advanced…so we were both very upset.  (How come this wasn’t discovered until now, with all the tests that they have been doing since last summer…?!!! ) On Saturday, Jan and I went up to visit Mum, we were both dreading it, but Mum was so happy to see us.
Things are going to be very difficult for us in the weeks ahead, so if I’m not around much you will understand why.  Thank you so much for all your good wishes and hugs, and love…I really do love you guys…you’re the best…XXXXXX
BTW…I still feel like crap…!

    Thank you so much for your thoughts and kind words. I\’m off up to visit Mum today, so I\’m hoping that there will be some news as to what is going on.Have been keeping mind busy, concentrating on costume stuff, and have started making a new bonnet…if I don\’t do anything, I think I\’ll go so far down in a spiral of negativity that I won\’t be of any use to anyone.Love and hugs to you all…and thanks…XXXX

Iknow with my first cancer i thought i was going to die during chemo but all i thought of was my loved ones being upset . and i just wanted to reassure them all the time .be positive with your mum and talk about happy thins ,this will help her more than tears .Hugs for you darling XXX

    I arrived at the hospital, yesterday, and my brother was already with Mum. They were waiting for the nurse to arrive to discharge Mum. She had had six litres of fluid drained from her abdomen, and until they get the test results back from that, which will be Friday, they cannot confirm that it actually is or isn\’t cancer. So there is no point Mum getting bored and fed up in hospital…she will be better off at home.It just means more waiting…and that is the worse bit! Where\’s the bonnet!!!!

    Crossed fingers for Friday being good news.. go get that bonnet.. or better still have a look at my last blog and see if you have any ideas how I can make it….. ;o)(((HUGS)))xXx

    There hasn\’t been much to report since last month. Mum went back into hospital for another drain, and when I phoned last, she said she was feeling better, as they had managed to get rid of more of the fluid, so she wasn\’t feeling so bloated…and she was able to eat a proper meal for the first time in months…AND she had a second helping! Anyway, she will be having six one hour sessions of chemo, so it\’s fingers, toes and everything else crossed!Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes…XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    The problem is, with the Early tests they weren\’t looking for cancer. Other diseases are usually ruled out first. I am appalled that you should be facing a disciplinary at this point in time. Is there no compassion for mitigating circumstances? That Woman really is a a cumudgeon. Remember if you need a chat, just ring and I will phone you straight back. xx

    Crumbs- I\’m sorry my own \’time out\’ missed this post. Re the work thing. I should imagine (and I have many of those) the bosses could not have ignored it with all the probable complaints made. So a \’hearing\’ (note not an actual decision) not only would be a right action (if done honestly) but prevent recurrence.I hope no-one else is shovelling the shit your way. Take this opportunity to be honest,open and evidential about it all.Shit happens- you did what you could- right? Afterwards you can shoot them all in a \’postal rage\’. (that\’s a joke- ok !) re Mum- I think most has already been said. Love- make the most of today, get good info- do memorably stupid/fun things. I\’ll send another complaint to the \’Big cheese\’ for you. I\’m still looking for a beggers picture circa jane austin- I\’m beggining to think there weren\’t any then ?
