Don't know if any of you have noticed my absence but last week was really tough. Last Sunday when my kids were at their dads my daughter woke with terrible back pain and was being very sick. Eventually she ended up in A&E and had to have an emergency op on a massive cyst on her ovary. She is only 16 so was a huge shock. I would have done anything to go in her place. The cyst burst when they started surgery so she was very lucky indeed. The good news is she is recovering really well and is having a few hours back at school today. On Thursday she received her AS level results and was pretty upset as she got C's in two of her exams but did get an A in maths. Because she hadn't been well she could only focus on the not so good results(she had been predicted B's in the ther two). Still the whole experience has been a huge learning curve in coping with challenging things happening and being able to cope. I also had to deal with her Dad who I haven't spoken to in three years but we put things aside for her sake. Then on Friday I took my beautiful Bambi to the dogs trust and had to say goodbye. What happened with my daughter showed me I can only cope with so much and my descision to rehome Bambi was the right one. We do miss her terribly though but now I don't have the stress of walking her every day is really helping. I've just been for a lovely walk in the sunshine with my older dog Skippy,she is a joy to walk,doesn't mind other dogs,walks to heel,it was bliss to be honest. I'm sure with a healthy strong owner Bambi will blossom,just been a very hard thing to do.
Ok I need a bit of a rest now,no more stress please!
