Twelve months ago today Mum,John, my sister and I went to the hospital to get the results of mum’s recent CT scan. The specialist was such a lovely man even mum liked him! 😉 He gave us the sad news that mum had stage four cancer in various places and nothing could be done but to give pain relief. I think that he was shocked how we all took the news, I suppose he was used to people breaking down but we were just relieved that finally we had an answer to why mum was having so much back pain.
We left the hospital and went back to mums house all shaking our heads, the doctor had been giving her rubbing cream thinking it was arthritis when it was actually bone cancer. Mum had asked the specialist how much time she had left and he had replied, months! Mum actually lived seven weeks after that diagnosis.
I am a great preacher of the statement light always follows darkness because it’s true, life goes on because it’s meant to be that way. We are put on this earth to enjoy life, life can and often is painful but there is also so much joy to be had.
Please remember light always follows darkness.
