Thank you Sarah for your kind words.
I sit and think, in these lonely hours about Maria and I worry about young people like you. The unwavering commitment people like you , my wife and many many more put into others, at the expense of their own health is just phenomenal.
Ive experienced it first hand & I read the stories on this screen and just marvel at the power of commitment.
Your husband and children are very lucky to have you Sarah. Stay healthy for them, but in particular for you. A community filled with Sarah’s and Maria’s , is a good one we all want to live in, especially me.
well wishes to you and your tribe.
Good morning Lampwork,
That is so lovely. Reading is brilliant, and you have reminded me to dig out some of my old books for them- thank you! We have been drawing, crafting, cooking- I am amazed at how stoic they are at the moment, they do miss their friends and teachers, but my eight year old is part of a pen pal system with her friends, and my seven year old twins have a regular Zoom playdate with their friends every couple of days- it's working well so far! They have been pretty good with the cancer stuff too, and I suppose that dealing with cancer AND COVID-19 all at once will give them a unique perspective! I honestly feel like the luckiest person on Earth to have the support team that I do;; my husband and I have done ok, I think. Now
Thank you so much for replying to me. You sound like a wonderful grandparent. I hope you're managing well and keeping safe. Today is a good day to stay in bed for longer with an extra cup of tea I reckon!
Oh crap @sch, so very sorry to hear that. I hope she doesn't have a bad run of it. And of course, that you or the kids don't get it either. Yell out if there's anything any of us can do 😘
@Sarah11 - I've got kids as well, one of whom is 8. They are pretty resilient creatures, give them all the hugs, and things like the washing and folding and everything else that comes with running a household can wait ❤️
Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes.
For personal reasons, we've decided to keep my wife at home for quarantine.
NSW health have provided us with face masks.
Some days she's better than others. Today wasn't a good day. She just lay in bed all day and slept and felt very sick and couldn't eat. She's in daily contact with medical staff who call to check on her in the afternoons.
Just incase you were curious, yes, it would be best to avoid catching this while receiving chemo!
