It's been a while hasn't it! I hope all my fellow bloggers and readers are doing just fine.
So what have I been doing with my time since I last posted? I guess it is time for a catch up!
First and foremost, the reason I blogged, Richard. It is almost 12 months since he started his chemotherapy. Can you believe how fast the time has gone because I cant! When we first started on this journey through cancer the future seemed far away, a day without cancer being our first thought upon waking seemed far away but all of a sudden it is here!
Richard is doing well. He is more or less back to normal although he does get more tired than before but I guess that is only to be expected. He has remained positive throughout and his strength and determination has carried us through the past year.
The second subject of the blog, Richie jnr, my handsome boy!! He really is a little star, such a happy and easy going little boy who really does have a smile for everyone. He is gong to be one on Tuesday, the year has flown and I believe that his arrival has made the whole process easier as it gave us all a positive focus.
Which brings me on to me! I have made a lot of changes recently, I guess the most major one is a total career change! Watching Richard go through his treatment and observing the work of the nurses on the ward has inspired me to start the process of training to be a nurse. The final outcome of this will hopefully be midwifery but in the mean time I want to give something back, perhaps a round about way of saying thank you to the nurses and doctors who helped us through such a difficult time. I guess the easy way would be to send a card and some flowers but my friends will tell you I never do things the easy way.
So here I am a month into an Access to Health course with a shed load of assignments to do, so much still left to learn but I have fantastic new friends and i predict we will have a ball! So here we are, a new path to follow, a new journey in life and if you are up for it then i'd love you to come along with me for the ride. So there we are, a new chapter in the world of Cancer and baby equals chaos :0)
