About this Blog

This blog started as an online diary and place for me to rant about annoyances in my family.

However since July it has become a place for me to catalogue and express my views and opinions on the treatment I have recieved following the diagnosis of a potentially cancerous tumor in my bowel.

On 3rd August 2011 I was told that it was cancerous. In April 2012 I was given the all clear.

October 15th 2013 I was diagnosed with peritoneal disease and liver metastases. The cancer was back and this time it is inoperable.

It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.

It is NOT about individuals or the nursing profession. It is about some of the inadequacies in the system and the way the NHS is failing some people.

mothers day

Mothers day, as opposed to mothering Sunday, is commercial invention designed to make money. I have spent the day feeling more and more out of touch.

I have had 3 mothers days. 1 with just Isaac and 2 with both of them. I have never been spoilt, surprised or allowed 'me' time.

Hubby works nights so mothers day is just a normal Sunday. Do laundry, load dishwasher, cook tea. All those who brag about being spoilt should remember the origins. The day that children as young as 10th were able to return home, to their mother church. Not for you to be spoilt.
