Hi all, as you know my Mum is now home but it's not been easy. She now has her bed downstairs as it's too much for her to use the stairs & she got really worried she would end up pulling my Dad down with her as the other day her leg gave out whilst coming downstairs. She had a bad day yesterday, needed her nebuliser as well as oxygen. She is on oxygen the whole time now, is this quite normal & will it change once she's starts to get stronger? I'm trying to cling to the hope this is temporary & she'll improve & that we'll get the chance to do things together again, go on holiday, enjoy watching the girls in the paddling pool in the summer, but she seems so ill. I'm scared this is it, I have no direct experience of cancer other than my Mum so I don't know what's normal but I have always thought she would have a good period at some point. Am I too impatient? I know she's just out of hospital but I am confused by her need for oxygen despite all the treatment. Another of my rants I'm afraid! It's my turn for a lie-in, Darran got up with the girls, but I can't sleep. Xx
