Got a call from Dad this morning to say that Mum came through her operation very well. At evening visiting she was sitting up and had enjoyed a sandwich and some of the wine gums (her favourite) that dad had brought her. I must say, I miss my family so much and the distance has never been felt so greatly as it is being felt now. However, I know that there are many many people looking after her both physically and emotionally and that brings me joy. We have a wonderful extended family (with some exceptions as i'm sure other families have) and Mum has a great circle of friends that I know have been rallying around her. She writes a journal which isn't the same as talking face to face, but it allows me to get a true sense of how she's feeling as she writes so openly.
Get well soon Mum, we love you so much. X
