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It is a little bit out of date as the NHS doesn't tend to have a WiFi connection in hospital and I can only post when I get home and posts take a while to write.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

Day 2 of Potty Training

I am sitting here in tears as I type this.
I don't know what to do?

I know it doesn't matter when he wees on the floor, I know I shouldn't give in to competitive parenting.

Everyone elses child is potty trained why won't mine?

After our one success yesterday it appears to have been a fluke as he won't sit on the potty when asked and we had two more wees on the floor.

This morning, we have had 2 on the floor, one he stood up and walked away from the potty then weed on the floor.

He is articulate, intelligent, and knows when he is pooing.

He has had problems with constipation in the past, and this skin infection appears to be clearing up nicely. I need to go out tomorrow but I cannot deal with wees all over the floor at toddlers or in the car seats.

I am at a loss and will continue to bawl like a baby
