Currently in hospital since last night with DS who is 3. Scans show masses on his brain. Drs believe them to be tumours, likely to have come from his abdomen.

Waiting for more scans/tests etc. staff are being overly nice to us which is worrying me more (though they did refer us to social services last night as they thought DH or I had fractured DS' skull.

Feel incredibly sick. He is 3 years old. Please hold my hand.

Sending (((hugs))). My DD developed leukaemia at the same age. l second the recommendation of the Children With Cancer support thread when you are ready. Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery for your DS.

Don't worry about crying in front of them. They may see that as a sign that they too, can be open with their own emotions rather than trying to hold it all in. Right now you need to support each other and if that support means just hugging and crying each other then that's what you need to do.

It's lunchtime now so do make sure that you eat and drink something even if you don't feel like it. You will need all your strength for your ds and your dd. Your ds is being looked after now, so make sure you look after yourself.

The outcome may not be as bad as you fear. Children are incredibly resilient and they will be doing all they can to help him.

Please know that we are all here thinking of you and I have a candle burning right now for your little boy.

How utterly awful for you. Just know that whatever happens from now there are many people thinking of you. x

Oh bless you. I know just how you are feeling.

My thoughts are with you and my only advice is to take it one minute at a time. Try really hard not to let your brain run away with you because it becomes utterly overwhelming.

Trazzle I am so sorry to hear about your DS.

I cannot imagine what you are going through at the moment.

How is your son dealing with being in hospital so far, is there a room where he can play?

I keep everything crossed for you and your DS.

I am so sorry. I hope the news you are waiting for isn't as bad as it seems at the moment.
