Not sure if any-one rembers me. I posted last year about my Mum and alcoholic step dad.
I have an incurable cancer amd my Dm was supposed to be coming to help look after me whilst I had a stem cell transplant. My Step Dad stopped her from coming by declaring he needed her as he had decided to get help for his alcoholism.
I was devastated but received so much support and wonderful advice from amazing people on here.
Update is my Dm has booked her flights amd arrives at the beginning of Feb for 7 weeks. I am so shocked but also incredibly happy and excited.
My step dad went to a few counselling sessions and declared it wasn't for him so is once again drinking full time. No surprises there!
Of course I remember your thread and I'm absolutely delighted for you, honey. That is marvellous news and I sincerely hope that the twat doesn't plague her with phone calls you all have a wonderful time.
How are you and, more to the point, how did the transplant go? Did you get the expected help from your ILs and manage to have a good Christmas despite your dm's absence?
Glad you remembered me, you really helped me through a rough time. Thank you.
I'm sure Sd will plague us with phone calls but hopefully we can keep them to a minimum ( unplug phone ).
I'm doing Ok. Had my transplant in November and it was hard going but I made it through and even got home 3 days before Christmas. It was truly wonderful. I find out how successful the transplant was on the 16th, rather anxious wait.
My in laws have been here since the beginning of Nov.. it has been interesting!
Hope you are well and putting your magical sprinkles to hood use x
I remember your previous post. I didn't comment as I was new to mn then and just lurking but I felt terrible for you, couldn't believe it. So I'm really happy to hear she's come after all shouldn't have been just because counselling didn't work out though ggrrr
I have just the one Dd aged 6. Poor girl has had an emotional few months. Having some-one other than me look after her has been difficult for her. She didn't get to see me for 3 weeks when I was unwell in hospital.
But now Im home we are trying to spend as much time together as possible. She is understandably clingy and wants to do everything for me ( brings me drinks and food, helping me upstairs). It is very sweet but also makes me feel a little sad.
I remember your thread and I'm so glad your DM has finally wriggled out of his emotionally blackmailing clutches and is doing the right thing. I hope your treatment is a success and that you have a lovely time together.
