The thing you never want to hear...

Usually this blog is filled with happy stories about our family but around 2:30pm today I received some news that has rocked our happy little boat. I’ve been told that I have cancer…I’m still waiting for the full diagnosis but have been told it’s either lymphoma or myeloma. No matter, they both sound awful.

I think I’m still in shock but have burst into tears a few times. I look at my two beautiful children and my lovely husband and am determined to beat this thing but I know it will be a long journey; one that will (in the Dr’s words) “turn our lives upside down”.

Not sure what to say Amy. We are feeling a long way away and wish we could just come round and give you hug. Love (lots of it) Andy, Tam, Amélie and Félix. xox

We're thinking of you all at this time, it must be a terrible shock, and just wish we could see you all. Your all in our prayers. Love Robin, Shany, Joe, Sam and Patrick
