It,s been emotional

I,ve rarely posted on here since my mum was diagnosed with BC almost 5 years ago but I,ve been on here practically everyday and followed stories that have both inspired me as well as breaking my heart, Potmaid always sticks in my mind. Well today I was told that my mum has days maybe weeks left as the cancer has spread pretty much everywhere. Flo (my mum) has never ailed anything until she was diagnosed with BC at 89. I,m so proud of the way she has battled and handled her illness and more so today as she handled the news like the brave and courageous 94 year old lady that she is while I have been a quivering wreck. We are bringing her home on Tuesday to spend her final days where she is happy and feels secure. Don,t know why I,ve posted on here but I felt that I had to as a tribute to her bravery but also out of love as she is my world.

Dear Emperortooco,

Love and kisses to you.  There is nothing better than taking your Mum’s hand at the end of her life as she took your’s at the beginning of your life.  Full circle.

Sorry to hear your sad news. It’s never easy, no matter what age and even when you know it’s inevitable. Be comforted that she’s at peace now and you did all you could for her.


Take care.
