Day of Reckoning

Today is the day we find out if mum's cancer has progressed and what the next step is on this tough journey. All we can hope for is that the cancer hasn't spread/grown anymore than it had in January.

Mum seems to be preparing for her passing (although I don't think she realises that we know what she's doing). She has taught dad too use the washing machine (nobody has ever been allowed to use her washing machine other than her haha) she has also had him ironing which in 46 years of being together is another task he's never done. Thankfully he's already a really good cook.

During quiet times I have played over in my head the conversation I may have to have with my youngest sister and brother (neither of whom come to any of mums appointments as it upsets them too much). This, along with what I may have to tell my two children, makes my heart very heavy.

I hope I can tell you all good news later.
