When life deals you an unexpected blow


Recommended Posts

I suppose we all have different ways of dealing with things, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't front up to this the way that you are Dave, enjoy Malta I'm pretty sure it is a different type of place than when I holidayed in Buggiba in 1981.

There's no right or wrong way to deal with it.

 

Before the final diagnosis I kept things very much to myself. I just alerted my ex about possible bad news to come for the kids and she's been really good about it. Opening up and sharing the news now is just my way of dealing with it.

 

Lung cancer's a funny one because it doesn't seem to get its fair share of research money. And because it's been a quick killer historically it's not got a series of celebrity survivors banging the drum for it.

 

There's also the "he smoked, it was his own fault" brigade. Well I didn't. And it isnt!

Very sad to hear about the crap hand you have been dealt O4U

 

Hoping though that you are able to spend as much time as possible surrounding yourself with the ones who love you.

 

I enjoyed reading your blog and maybe we can catch up at the cricket down under for a drink.

 

Carpe diem!

Glad you got to taste a Cisk in Malta too

 

I brought some home from Gozo last year, have got one left in the fridge, saving it for a special occasion

As I hurtle towards the 100 day mark there's a realisation that one in three lung cancer sufferers are dead within 90 days of diagnosis.
