I hope no-one minds me posting this as it's not very cheerful and this is meant to be the lighter side of the forum, but I'm feeling like I need to share and am hoping some of your magic Snowy-helping goodwill might help. Please tell me if I have managed to break any forum rules and I'll take it down.
I have just heard that my dad has a brain tumour. We don't know how bad it is yet as we are waiting for the MRI results; the neurologist seems to be pretty down and is making faces about it being aggressive, but the radiologist who saw the CT scan results doesn't think it is; we will know tomorrow morning. He has had some symptoms including falling over and hitting his head, but not as many as it seems you can have and he hasn't had any seizures. I am obviously not an expert and may be deluding myself but am hoping this is a good sign.
I'll be going to stay with my parents for a week from Friday (I have my next cons appt this Thursday so can't go before then). My dad doesn't actually know he has a tumour yet, they haven't told him though I guess they will have to at some point, probably tomorrow.
Anyway, sorry if this is a bit depressing! Thanks for reading if you got this far.
