As some of you know I have elderly sick Parents my mother with memory problems and my father with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma.Dad had is last course of chemo therapy just over a week ago and on Thursday he was admitted to hospital. He is in severe pain which the doctors are struggling to control even with Morphine.He is a very private man and the side effects of all the drugs are difficult for him to deal with. It is so unfair that it should come to this he has fought so hard to beat this cancer and although he went through this eight years ago age is against him. He has been put into a small side room in isolation as his white blood cell count is down and he has an infection which they are trying to control.
This photo was taken at their Diamond Wedding anniversary last September a week later Dad was told the cancer had returned. Also at this celebration was my Cousin who was Bridesmaid at their wedding 60 years earlier. Last week Susan had her own life turned upside down when her Son took his own life while in the next room.
So in a very short space of time the smiles have turned to tears and life is so very different.
