It's me again. Didn't want a gloomy thread title. Sounds a bit like a girls' boarding school story.

Please could someone link to previous thread?

Kids have been dropped at nursery with cards and treats they made for the staff - it is Joseph's last week before school and Esther's last week before moving to Toddlers. Feel a bit strange having them there when we are at home but it's only 2.5 days a week anyway.

Been up since 4am. Little girl came to join us at 5ish and dozed off again eventually after a lot of 'Hi Mummy! Hi Daddy! Cuddle Mummy! Up?'

In between all the crying yesterday I managed to get to J's new school and have a meeting with his teacher and the headmaster who were very supportive. And got myself to the docs and have been signed off for a month to start with.

And I have a lesson booked with a driving instructor on 9 Sept!

< sounding more upbeat than I feel >

I am with my parents currently and am so grateful to have them. Thinking of you and hoping you still have lots of support around you x

Sending positive thoughts x

Just echoing what everybody else has said - you've made thiese good friends. I am so glad you have their support and that you are allowing them to help. You know that is what they want (and need)to do smile.
I am hoping having a treatment plan/schedule in place will make you feel less in limbo.
Thinking of you daily x.

Hi Tunnocks lovely to hear you have so much real life support.
My DS had 5 and half weeks of twice daily radiotherapy. The Drs warned us it might make him terribly tired. He got most of the way through before fatigue hit him right at the end if the treatment. He was desperately tired for weeks, actually unable to get out of bed. Just to warn you that this is quite common. There was nothing we could do but just let him sleep it off.

Although radio and chemo are frightening they are positive steps to treating the cancer.

Wishing you much love.

What wonderful friends you have smile
