And so today…5 yrs after end of chemo and surgery Mrs SILH had her final clinical check done by her consultant and all seems OK. GOOD NEWS indeed, though being a breast cancer nurse specialist my Mrs is very sensitive to aches and pains as to what they might mean. And so though she has now gone through the treatment framework with nothing turning up, she knows that that’s not the end of the story. But she knows she can‘t look ahead to what might be, because that way lies fear and ‘madness’.
So living one day at a time is the order of the day…which of course is all that we can actually do.
HID coming home from her first day in the new job and talking ten to the dozen like an excited kid coming home from the first day of school. She has had mental health issues and was never sure she was liked or her housekeeping role was valued at the school. The send off yesterday put that to bed and she seems a different woman and so engaged and happy.
