The world works in annoying cycles of good and bad. Some folk have it really bad and wonder when that side of things will ever just bugger right off. So, forgive me if you’ve been stuck in a continual cycle of shit and my upcoming crowing sounds insensitive, but it’s been a great week.
First there was the funding and premises for Egos At The Door and now something to top it all.
Some of you may know that a valued and much loved family member, Auntie Joan died recently, with heroic grace, of cancer, followed oh too swiftly by my dad’s diagnosis.
After watching Auntie J deal with her illness and swift decline with such humbling humility, I decided that I would stay positive and insist my Pop did the same.
He’s had his dark days, as anyone would, though I can tell you all, with the biggest smile on my face, that he’s been given the news that he will only have to endure two more sessions of chemo. The specialist has told him that the cancer has gone!!
Obviously, he still has to have another operation and is trying not to get too excited, but I am!
I’m very proud of his will to fight and thankful to York hospital for all their great work!!
Peace to all going through a tunnel that seems never to fill with light. I hope it soon does.
