My parents are not having a very nice time of it lately. :(
My Aunt (my Mum's sister) is dying of cancer and may not make Xmas She lives in Sydney (about 11 hours drive away) , and my Mum has been doing her best to spend as much time as she can with her.
My Dad has to have an operation on his hand on Monday to have a benign cyst removed, and now a skin cancer on my Mum's face is proving difficult to treat and she is going to need radiation treatment for the next 6 weeks!
Mum is just feeling overwhelmed at the moment, the treatment will make her feel worse, and she is trying so hard to be there for her sister and my Dad and everyone else (typical, hey!)
I think some pixie dust may help!
