To think being in hospital with a baby on chemo isn't a 'break'?

I'm in hospital with my baby who has cancer and is having chemotherapy.

The nurse we saw earlier asked if I had older children. When I said yes, she replied, 'Oh, so being in here is a bit of a break for you then.'

I replied, 'Er, no, it's not really a break having a baby on chemo and I also miss my older ones.'


(I'm sure she was just trying to make conversation and am not really annoyed but just had to share... But please be nice to me... You understand why.)

Thanks for asking ck. Up and down today. Terrible nappy change at 5am (the chemo drugs make the wee literally toxic) so awful screaming ending up in a puke... But she brightened up a bit later. Didn't eat a scrap though. Thank goodness for bf!

We're all still here thinking about you, Praying. Poor Beatrice. I hope she feels better soon.
