It has been a hard couple of weeks... for us. A harder year for Sylvia, Andrew's mother.
Andrew's dad (John) has been unwell for quite some time. It began with a kidney issue, and the need to go on dialysis (which he didn't).
Two weeks ago he was diagnosed with secondary bone cancer. He was admitted to hospital yesterday, for a whole heap of tests and pain management. John has decided not to undergo any chemo etc. I can understand that.
It is hard at home because the kids don't understand how sick Grandfather is, and how that may effect Andrew.
Andrew still has to function at his job. And then come home to us - a rabble of noise and daily duties!
In a way, there is no time for us. Really. And I understand that.
Mmmmm. That is life.
I know that God has it under control, and that is life. We just need to weather the storm.
