My previously fit Mum was diagnosed yesterday with colon cancer. It appears to be quite advanced, and she is due to start chemo- and radio- therapy shortly. Then she will have surgery and a colostomy.
My Dad and I will be sharing the practical business of daily commutes to the hospital.
My main worry is for my parents, of course. If anyone has any tips for helping them through this process, I'd be grateful. But also, this is going to involve me with a level of activity that is way beyond anything I have managed in the past 18 months or so. Any thoughts on how to keep going with a succession of all-day round trips, enhancing stamina etc would also be welcome.
