Not wrote a blog for a while cause mum's been so well but unfortunately for the past 6 weeks she has made a dramatic decline. She's in terrible pain all the time and has started to lose weight again. We went to see the consultant on Thursday and he has told us the tumor has woken up and there's nothing more they can do except control her pain. They offered her more treatment (palliative only) but the side effects are pretty nasty so she has decided to live whats left of her life on just pain relief.
As a family we are finding this very hard to come to terms with especially my brother who feels she has given up but I explained to him that it's her choice and we should think of it as quality of life over quantity of life. My sister gets married in September and mum's goal is to be there and to be as healthy as possible so she can see the last of her four children married. She's a very stubborn lady and I dont doubt she'll be there in her mother of the bride outfit with the biggest smile on her face.
She has just had a new great grandaughter born too so that has put a huge smile on her face but she also shed some tears as she realises she wont have much time with her.
I will write as often as I can with updates.
Stay strong everyone this battle isnt over yet.
