Sometimes life can throw you into a spin.

mmmmm so those of you who know me know that I do sometimes keep things to myself. Well this is one of those things

Around the time we welcomed Adam into our lives we were also finding out that mum has Lung Cancer :(

It's at stage 4, it's treatable but not cureable, she has spent most of the past month in a hospital in Brisbane (about 7 hrs away from us), getting diagnosed, having an operation to try and stop the fluid building up on her lung and discussing treatment options. As of yet we still don't know what sort of treatment she will be able to do.

The cancer she has usually affects Smokers and that is one thing Mum isn't and never has been, she is just one of the very very very unlucky people that happens to have unfortunately got it.

Well all our lives have been spinning around this past month, you can just imagine where my brain is right now, trying to process that yes your mum is dying and that's the hard part, she is, there will be no miracle cure, and it all depends on how she copes with treatment and her attitude to everything on how long she will be here. Plus on top of that the supposedly happy time of a new baby has been shaken by this.

Anyway all off my chest. Blah.

This LO is a bit of what I've just said but I'm sure you can click it and get a bigger pic if you want to read the journalling.

Was also for a sketch challenge at Bons




Well that's it for the moment

I am so sorry to hear your news and I just wanted to let you know that I understand totally. My mum was diagnosed with lung cancer 6 years ago when I was pregnant with my youngest. She was diagnosed late so the treatment was only to try and help her with her pain. She passed away when my baby was 8 weeks old. I understand the difficulty of having to suffer the thoughts of life without your mum and the joy you should be feeling for the birth of your new baby. And also being there both physically and emotionally for all your children. Times will not be easy for you but try and find strength in your family and know that they are there for you and will wait for you. Make sure you spend the time with your mum and that your kids do too. They will want to remember everything they can about her. If there is anything I can do to help dont hesitate.

I cannot imagine how you must be spinning...I am so sad to hear the news about your mum try and look for the positives it makes Adams arrival, now even more blessed as your Mum is here to enjoy him for how ever long that may be. I admire you for sharing what still must be so hard to process. All my best to you, your mum and you precious family.

Hi Nic, you know I'm going thru the same with Daddy, here if you want to chat, so sorry to hear, it's not easy and there's no rights words to say except those that you have the opportunity of saying to your mum right now, go for it and don't hold back, God Bless you all, Tiff.

Leanne said...

my thoughts are with you all... i'm so glad you scrapped this and shared it with us all.. fingers crossed that all goes well...
i always find that the scrap therapy helps to get all those emotions and thoughts down.. not just in the journalling but refects in the whole page..

Leanne said...

Oh sweetie! What a time this has been for you. I hope that you will be able to deal with everything that gets thrown your way. Treasure this time with your new son and your Mum. {{{hugs}}}
