Wishing your mum good luck with the scan results. Thinking about you both. My daughter has been such a good support for me. I wouldn't have coped without her last year especially last year when I was really Ill. I'm sure you must be a great support to your mum too.
Lots of love Sheila. Xx
im so sorry about your mum. Its very hard for our loved ones to know what to say or do. I know that I was a serious mess when I found out I had cancer. My husband had to take all the crying and worry. I now have counselling which lightens the burden on him. I go to my counsellor and just let it all out. Also, has your mum thought of taking anti-depressants? i know a lot of people who dont want to take them but they can really help. also, sleeping tablets. I know it sound like a lot but if you sleep and have a level head it helps.
I go to the marsden. I live in essex and travel into london. it is a bit of a trek but worth it i think. My local hospital is just really bad and i couldnt stand it anymore so i transferred I also go privately which helps. My children both know. My son (16) knows more than my daughter but he realises this is serious stuff she doesnt really and shes a very optimistic 11 year old. She actually came with me to the marsden yesterday and sat all day . Nothing fazes her. im 46 so its tough. I just try to think that there is worse stuff going out there to much younger people than me. I would love to see my chikdren grow up. Thats what i hanging onto!
well thats enough ranting from me!
if you want to PM me i dont mind.

I haven't had taxol but did have taxotere last year which didn't help much. Have since had vinorelbine which worked well on my liver. Taxol could work really well for you but don't despair if it doesn't as there are plenty of treatments out there.
Wishing you well.
Love Sheila. Xx
