Some of my readers have known for a while that my husband after several months of illness has been undergoing a lot of tests at hospital. This week the doctors confirmed our suspicions that Ned has Hodgkins Disease, which in plain terms is cancer of the lymphatic system. This was not a horrible shock to us, more of a relief as we had known for several weeks that this was the most likely diagnosis. Ned has been unwell for a long time, and to be able to move forward with treatment is great. Ironically one of the symptoms has been several large lumps in Ned’s throat.
Over the next six month we will be having chemotherapy once a fortnight. Obviously this will be a major upheaveal, as we will still be trying to be the best parents that we can, while working (Ned still wants too) and coping with the quite horrendous side effects of chemo.
One thing that I have really enjoyed over the last few months has been writing and researching my blog, and I in no way want to to give this up, I feel I have learned and gained a lot from the expereince and I still have more to do. However it will be more trying for me to find the time to dedicate to it which it really needs. This is where my readers come in. The guest blogs are a lot easier than writing whole pieces myself, I just need to organise and edit. So if you would like to help me out, and would like to write a guest post, please feel free to drop me a line with your ideas. email@example.com
