I want to thank all of you for your replies and good wishes .At the moment I would find it hard to reply to each one individually though I would much prefer to.. I can’t tell you how touched I was at all your loving support and advice. This group is very special!
Dee lives a two-hour drive away so physical contact isn’t all that easy .I am hoping to go up there when she feels a little bit stronger and stay nearby with one of her sons for a few days. She has three boys and a very supportive husband. I am lucky that my other three daughter live close by to me. My son lives in Cheshire so I don’t see him often..
We were all respecting Dee and her husband re their wishes that they didn’t want any phone calls or messages this weekend; they needed to process the news in their heads first. However Dee phoned me (video call) today and we had a lovely chat. She is so positive and strong and said that no way was she going to die in her 50s,she is going to fight this every step off the way!!. She is aiming to get as strong as she can to face the chemo etc. She also made me smile when she said that she had ordered a load of stuff from Amazon including a new phone, an organiser to plan what she wants to do these coming months and a mascara costing £26!!
That’s my girl! Onwards and Upwards!
PS This photo was taken at Dee’s birthday last year(Dee and my other three daughters and I, my son couldn’t be there) These are the important times that we need to appreciate and hold on to ?
