    I'll just off load my dreadful news

    My sister has lumps in her neck.
    Over a 3 month period starting with Drs, then hospital scan, biopsy, another scan booked for this Friday... no results...
    Yesterday she was called out of the blue into see Consultant - she has cancerous lymph glands.
    He is pretty certain it is secondary cancer.
    She has to go to Cardiff on Monday for a full body scan to see where (or hopefully not) the primary cancer is ..
    Going forward is an op to remove glands, then chemo or radio therapy.
    It has been sinking in all day, Poor Mum & Dad are floundering... I know Dad has blood cancer but that seems in a different league to this.
    This is my little sister...

    I know others here have suffered & are suffering, and it is all new to us as a family, I hope you won't mind me asking stuff I don't understand?

    apologies xxx

    Yes Di. You can only claim the last three. Is your oldest APG small enough to abandon?

    Snap........ I don't know what to say but you are a strong family , be there for each other....... for me this was the hardest part, the waiting and the unknown as soon as they know what they are dealing with its all systems go and the support network is second to none. Ask away if you have any questions.

    Good morning Elite

    So life has changed, never to be the same again. My baby at the age of 27 has fledged. My stash has depleated the freezer looks slimmer and the Bank of M&D took a pounding

    I can't remember a week like it, I'm sure my other three fledged much easier than this but there again the Bank of M&D took poundings then too .

    So our weekend was quiet during the early hours of Saturday and Sunday, no drunken feet stumbled up the stairs we slept right through if I remember rightly

    Love the bank of M&D ours has been battered too. She left work on 23rd December and has just received her first weeks pay of maternity pay. Thanks to our fabulous friend FC I'm not replacing her name because She has been fantastic and deserves the praise.
    How funny life can be, it was this time last year that I organised that charity breakfast and a cheeky comment of, you could come you're only up the road has turned into a great friendship. She is my voice of reasoning, giving sound advice, I truly wouldn't be the person I am today in such good circumstances without her. crikey that's a bit heavy for a Thursday morning I should also add that I have other fabulous friends too BQ, ellie14 and sunflower, it saddens me that they don't post anymore butvi suppose nothing in life stays the same.

    Got to go to work again today it's a bit too repetitive for my liking

    Things certainly do change Di, but FC never will. She's the most honest and straight talking person I'm met in a lot of years. A wonderful lass indeed

    I might go back to bed for an hour as I misread my clock I thought it was 7.30am, an hour early I was

    Enjoy work Di, don't overdoit, oh that's right, you never do

    Just came on to say Snap-ant, I'm so so sorry to read your news. I shedded a tear myself as I read your post

    I know it's so easy to say, but be strong, research all you can about available treatments. Great advancements are being made all the time, and that's wherein my hope clings.
    Sending positive thoughts and prayers

    Good morning to all the lovely Elite peoples
    Hugs and positive thoughts to All, and special thoughts for those that Life has thrown challenges to
