Bad News

Post by Rosikus » 30 Aug 2012, 11:19

I haven't posted on here for far too long, as I'm sure most of you will know all too well life tends to take over.

I've come to share some bad news. Last Tuesday my dad (Pete) was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas and possible liver secondaries. His prognosis isn't good and life expectancy is weeks to months instead of years. Some of you will have met him, as grandpa to Toby and Boris doodles he came on lots of doodle meets over the years.
Obviously we're all devastated, and so far are living in limbo not really knowing how to take it in. There's lots of people to tell so everyone is finding out slowly. We have lots of support and will get through this as a family.

Love to all.

Rosie x

Oh Rosie :( :( :( . What a terrible thing for you all to deal with. Such a shock for you all. I will be thinking of you, and your Mum, Dad & sister. Keep hugging your boys - they will be the best help to you.

How awful for all of you - make the most of your time together and talk about all the things you want to know and say to each other and try to laugh more than you cry
My thoughts are with you

Rosie, I'm so sorry to read this (((hugs))). A couple of days ago I was wondering how you were getting on and thinking we hadn't seen you on here in a while.

Your family and dogs will be a huge comfort in supporting each other through this time, make the most of what you have while you can.

Oh Rosie, I am so very sorry for you all, especially your Dad, who must be devastated at the prospect of leaving his family so soon. :cry:

Life is so very unfair and sometimes you can only rage against it and scream at the world. Your lovely boys will be such a comfort to you all.

Know that we are all here to lend an ear when you need us. Send our love to all your family and take care of yourself to be strong for your lovely Mum.
