Day 2 of staying positive about things, and getting to grips with the challenges that lay ahead. So an update so far.
Today I heard from my solicitor regarding my case with my employer, to discuss figures, and get some further information to get the whole matter tied up and dealt with once and for all. Fingers crossed with the latest information, the whole matter will be closed and finished by the summer.
In other news....
I have today decided its time to rebuild bridges, and make new paths to follow, so have been reaching out in all directions to try and make amends for anything I know needs addressing. Debts, broken friendships, and other ignored or forgotten matters that really require some attention.
Part of the whole dealing with life thing I guess.
I have also started looking into funeral arrangements too. A little premature I know, but I want to make sure that all mums wishes are taken care of when the day arrives.
On a stranger note, just as a tag for the day, to remind me what was going on today. In world news a big story was that Shamu (one of the orca's at Seaworld) killed a trainer last night. 3rd person.
Right thats me for now, might be back later with a round-up of how the day ended.
Not entirely sure where to start but let's give it a go.
Let's get up to speed first shall we... This could take a while.
So 2 years ago, almost to the day, mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to her opinion of treatment for it the outlook was bleak. After a lot of pressure from me she decided to give chemo and radiotherapy a go. In fairness she went to hell and back with side effects from it, and I would not ask her to do that again.
Somewhere between then and no I dropped the ball a bit. Maybe it was stopping blogging? All the while I blogged I stayed on top of what I needed to be doing and kept it in mind what was happening, but for a while I seemed to have forgotton she was terminally ill.
Sadly in recent days she has admitted that the lumps are back and causing her pain. In typical fashion she left it almost 2 months before telling me about it, almost it try and let it take hold first.
So here we are today. Today I have spent the day speaking with the housing people on mums behalf to ensure I have somewhere to live when the day comes, on her request as its worrying her. So hopefully that is all sorted out now.
I have some other bleak things to do too, like planning for after she passes etc, but one step at a time. Dealing with this today was enough for now.
Right, I think that's enough for now, phew!
If you have not read a blog by me, here is my old blog and what to expect from this space.
My my, its been a while since I last wrote any form of blog, and time has flown by. But as usual at times of great need, if in doubt......SHOUT.
So here I am.Its been a pretty smooth journey for the last year, a few surgeries, time off work, and the usual trials and tribulations of life, but nothing too drastic.Unfortunatly the whole cancer thing has taken hold again with mum, and I guess this will be the main focus of my blogging, so I apologise in advance if the entries are a little depressing to say the least.
I will try and keep things upbeat too.Right, thats me for the time being, just got to get this thing all set up now, and running from my Blackberry, and then I will be a happy man.
Thanks for reading, come back soon.
