    Default Back hopefully

    Sadly not been around over the last 6 months after coming back on board as admin but hopefully that will change a wee bit over the coming weeks / months.

    Back in february my dad was going into hospital for a day appointment to have a biopsy following a year of feeling crap and some blood results. Unfortunately when he went under the knife they found he had bladder cancer. 80% of the bladder was affected and he had to stay in to have the bladder removed. Added to that the cancer had cut off the blood supply to one of the kidneys and he was in a pretty bad state. This involved me doing a 90 mile round trip every evening after work for 5 or 6 weeks to visit and take my mum.

    The op went well although a week after the whole of his wound opened up and he needed a 2nd op to fix it after been left with his stomach wrapped in clingfilm and packed for 18 hrs while they waited on a surgeon.

    Good news is the op was successful and from what they can tell all the cancer was removed and had not spread. He is still far from fit and could be a year before he is back to strength and being he was my mums main carer and cant lift anything or until last month drive i have been going from work to do shopping, housework etc and it has meant i just don't have much free time and what i do i've been knackered. Coupled with a busy spell of doing 14hr days at work last 3 weeks its not great.

    I did get a week off back in june where i managed to get away with karen and managed a last minute trip down to billing (just as it got canceled) but other than that is been all go.

    Over the last week or 2 after a few false starts dad seems to be on the mend a little. He has managed to get driving and get a newspaper, pint of milk etc so is not as stir crazy as he was and i am now only going every couple of days. Hopefully i will find more time to do more on here again although i am concerned me and this role may just not me meant for each other. We will see.

    I had been up to date with sticker orders but have fallen a week or 2 behind after breaking my laptop, but think i have found the printers driver disc so can get those sorted tomorrow.

    So hopefully i'll be able to be around a bit more again. Off to try and see whats been happening and what i've missed.

    Glad to hear your old man is on the mend. Sounds like a pretty stressful time you've had. Just make sure that your looking after yourself too.

    Hopefully thing will be a lot easier, and he is going to be ok. A bit of a stressful time for you over the last six months.

    Sorry to hear about your dad, glad things appear to be improving. At times like this the last thing you need is to work on a website. All the best and good to have you back.
