Update

The last fortnight has been one I don't wish to repeat. Firstly he was in hospital and diagnosed with a blood clot in his lung and neutrophils. He got home for all of 2 and a half days when he became extremely breathless and confused so ambulance back to hospital. Exacerbation of his copd and infection. Got home again and very weak and tired. Had his chemotherapy today as his blood results much better.

Friends have been amazing though, supplying food and giving lifts whenever needed.

I'm exhausted though as my health isn't good anyway

My problem is I'm not in good health myself. A friend took me to church tonight but ended up crying throughout most of the service. M
