She came home early evening yesterday, struggling to eat or drink. Just glad to have her back.

That's good news about her coming home.

Hopefully now she's in her own space things will improve for her and maybe take a bit of pressure off you.

spoil her rotten!.

Look after yourselves Stig and VD. 

Thanks mate, I just hope that you haven't got things lost in translation and that I'm not VD's missus. I know the stiletto bit might assume that.

A mate has lost his daughter on Thursday to cancer, she was 38. He's a big red,he's nicknamed grobbelaar because in the 80s he looked like Bruce. Very sad.

 

On a brighter note my mate did a fundraiser for meningitis reserarch in memory of his sister. This was a charity close to her. Ran 4 miles every 4 hours for 36 hours ( including during the night) raised £1500 quid and finished this morning.

My aunty recently got the all clear, I was worried she wouldn't get her op due to Covid as hers was discovered around February, but they've got it all and she's doing well. Her daughter had it a few years back when she was only 35 and she's better now too. 

 

There's a lot of tragedy out there, it's heartbreaking, but it's good that so many people do recover now. I personally know at least a dozen or so people of all ages, ranging from early 20s to late 60s, who've had it and only one has sadly lost the battle after a few years, the rest all fully recovered. 

 

I think outcomes have improved a lot in recent decades. I remember in the 80s nobody we knew who got cancer seemed to get better, I used to hate the word 'Clatterbridge' because people seemed to go there and not come back.

Just checked it was 48 hours not 36, that's a fair challenge to pick

Who’s up for a virtual Macmillan fundraising Coffee Morning on Friday 25 September?
 

I’m sure most of you are aware of the work of Macmillan nurses who support people with cancer in their own homes and this annual fundraising event. Having received an email today about this year’s event got me thinking if there might be any interest in doing something on here and whether this might be a way of showing support for Stig, VD and his wife, mattyq and others whose story we don’t know.

I’m just thinking aloud here but if there’s any interest I’m happy to co-ordinate. What do you say?

Update re my partner. She is doing well and eating for Liverpool. They found a cancerous lump on her breast a few weeks ago and she is taking tablets to shrink it and then it will be removed. She is awaiting a procedure to assess her bladder damage in the Spire in November, then an op hopefully soon after. She has gone through the ringer. Told her about all the well wishers on here and she was made-up. Your support means the world to me.

Aah ok. Wasn’t sure if she might have been on something steroid based. My mums appetite was unreal when she was on them. She’d never had a bit appetite all her life but she was non stop eating on them.

She sounds like she's having a real tough time. At least the docs seem to have it all under control. And eating is great as I'm sure the hozzie are saying, they just want you to pile those calories in. Made up for you both it seems more positive.

Sounds like she’s really been through the ringer VD. Difficult to watch anyone suffering like that, let alone someone you love. I bet the support you’re giving is priceless for her though. All the best mate, fingers crossed.
