Miracles can happen ....

Morning all

Just have to share this amazing event.... to say we are happy is an understatement...

My brother in law has improved miraculously, while we all prepared for the worst, and his wife and son stayed with him all night every day, fearing the inevitable, he proved everyone wrong !!!  To say everyone was confused is an understatement!  We were all aware that cancer sufferers have their peaks and troughs, so while we were over the moon he was awake, he had no idea where he was or the fact he had cancer, the doctor said he could come home and he is having physio, eating and is out of bed all dressed, cant believe the difference from a week ago...

I have to say even when he was very ill with this septic chest infection he never lost his sense of humour.  He said he thought he would just lie down and go to sleep and never wake up, but it wasn't his time, he has another grandchild due to be born soon and i'm sure he wants to stay around for his birth, there are a lot of special birthdays this year too, and as he is a party animal, he couldn't possibly leave us just yet..  :)

 We know he still has cancer and that the inevitable will happen, but not like this ... I know i'm waffling on but just so happy...

MIA

Afternoon, sorry i've been MIA my brother in law is in Palliative care unit as he has cancer and brain tumour so we have been spending most of our days with him at the hospital.  Everything is on hold for the moment xxxx

My sister in law wrote him a beautiful poem and asked if there was anything I could do with it....

I made a basket of flowers (designed by Tina Finch) in Black and White as he is a Newcastle United fan, I then made a little book in the shape of a heart and put the poem in the book.  I made it so the book can easily be detached and she can place it with her husband when the times comes and that way he is always holding her heart.
