Re: Meeting the landmarks in life

My son is 25 would love to see him married and settled but seems a while off! I'm 5 years out from stage 4 diagnosis from the start, did very well for 4 years now got liver, lung and bones mets and currently on first ever chemo!
I would love many more years but i am blowed if the government are going to do me out of my state pension! Having moved the goalposts twice I now won't get it until I'm 63.25! So a year in Nov! I'm determined to get that!!

Re: Meeting the landmarks in life

Lovely news Ellie. I'm currently keeping going for my younger son's Masters degree graduation (extra pleased as he was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia in the 2nd year of his bachelor's degree). All these landmarks help us psychologically a lot.

I hope they like the new school/college.

Ah that's lovely ellie. 🙂 Oh big school next, they always look too big for primary but not quite ready for the big school. Or is that just me? 🙂 May you have many more landmarks. X

Meeting the landmarks in life

Over the past few weeks I have celebrated my sixteen year old leaving high school and today I watched my eleven year old finish primary school. So in September I have one son starting college to do his A levels and another son going onto high school. To some people these are just small landmarks in life but to me they are something I never thought I would see 2 1/2 years ago (when dx with double whammey liver mets). But I have seen my boys move on and I am still here, feeling well and presently NED. So I do believe I will be here for many more landmarks.
