I have been overwhelmed with the support & offers of help I have received about my MIL - in the comments, privately and in person. THANK YOU!!!
She has her first consultation today with the radiation specialist. We think its just a consultation rather than an actual treatment, so once again everything is day by day until we find out more.
I'm coping ok - I'm good at compartmentalizing and distracting myself. It helps that we've been busy with Billy's school holiday activities.
So thank you!
