    Ok, this is a bit surreal, long story short: Both Dad and fiance Tgirl already post blogs on here so I dont need to go into any detail about whats happening to who and where and why and when...

Writing as any therapist will tell you is cathartic, some write poetry, some write songs, some write letters to people just to tear them up.......

    Hi all, We have heard that there are a lot of 'alternative' types of therapy out there. My wife has now completed 8 sets of FEC chemo and we would like to see if we could find something to complement the treatment she has already had.

    We have lots of plans to slot in over the next couple of weeks. Next week we are following up the pre op assessment (oh isn't it amazing how quickly you adjust to a life when you spend a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms?! I always have a novel, change for coffee, antibacterial hand wipes and a fixed grin in my handbag wherever I go now - just in case!) with a trip to London to see Les Mis (Andrew's favourite show of all time which I have never seen). Although it is only an hour's...
