1. Sit her down with a nice brew and explain that during her cancer treatment you and your wife will be away for a bit having your own type of treatment
2. Sit down with her and tell her your wife has something to tell her
3. In the middle of her latest appointment to discuss her cancer treatment, when it would start and how it would go... ask the consultant about if your mum can be near your wife during IVF treatment if she’s having cancer treatment. And make sure it’s the first time your mum has ever heard anything about it!
Well; knowing and loving Mr Emu I can categorically tell you it was number three. Allegedly Mr Emu and his mum have the doctors and nurses in fits of giggles most of the time... you know like when she had a scan of her heart and he asked if that was to prove she had one... 😂
So, when he asked about IVF and cancer treatment there was a lot of laughter and Mr Emu’s mum exclaimed: “What a way to find out!” 😂
She was a rock to me during our last cycle so, even though she’s going through her own hell... I’m glad she knows. Mr Emu is relieved she knows. Relieved I’ll be able to be by her side too. And yes........we’ve agreed to eat cake together during the 2ww!
Thanks so much to the women on here who have been through IVF with a close family member suffering with illness; your wise words and hopeful outlook really helped us both. xx
