Good and Bad

Good:
3 year old is doing well today after his surgery having had his ears done and his tonsils and adenoids out. Having the back of your nose cut up and bits of your throat cut out is a big deal when you're three.

Bad:
Dad's not doing so well. It responded to chemo for a while but looks to have taken an aggressive turn over the last few weeks. Transfusions, drugs, therapy: not your normal Christmas cocktail.

Oh Stephen, that's an awful lot to handle at one time...

I'm sure you're little man will recover well, kids are pretty resilliant.

So sorry about your father. Don't give up hope...

*Big hugs*

Sorry to hear about your dad Stephen, it's esp hard to get this kind of news now, and still have to keep up spirits for your little ones. Wishing your dad the best.

I have no idea what an adenoid is but I’m glad your little man is free of them.

Sorry to hear about your dad mate. I can’t imagine what that treatment must be like for him and what seeing your dad going through that must be like for you.

Hang in there Stephen.

You are a good father and will help your little man back ASAP.

You are a good son and your support will help your father in ways that you may not know.

Hang in there, mate.

Feeling for you with your Dad, Stephen. I know you will be there for him, and your 3 year old, and that's the most important thing.

I'm really sorry to hear about your father. That's got to be really rough. I hope things get better in time for Christmas. I'm sure he hopes they get better, too.

Steph said...

Wow, what a shitful time you're all having.

Thinking of you.

Thanks for all the love guys

bottom line is Adrian is fine and dad's holding steady, for now.

Two days of work left then going down to see him for a week or so.
