So the last time I posted on here was because cancer had taken a 4 year old boy at school. Now it's taken one of the longest serving teachers as well. When they went back to school after the Easter holidays she seemed fine: then she collapsed from what was thought to be a stroke but which turned out to be a terminal brain tumour. She was given up to 3 months, but didn't even last one of them.

I suppose tears in the playground are inevitable in school life: but they should never have to be shed for something like this.

[Mad] for the cancer
[Votive] for her family, friends, colleagues and pupils.

I took my eight-year old to a specialist's appointment a couple of days ago. An appointment I had to push our GP to request, and which we waited six months to get. I expected five minutes and a polite brush-off. What we got was three-quarters of an hour of examination and note-taking, consulting with colleagues, the ordering of many tests, and at some point the phrase 'possibly a tumour' was uttered. I am not thinking too straight right now.

Thankfully pneumonia got my Dad on June 6th before the cancer could.

He'd have been 87 today.

If your youngster has half the fight in him that Dad had even at his age, anoesis, he'll do just fine. Sending you Dad's share of my thoughts, now he no longer needs them I'm damned if I'm wasting them.

Thanks, guys. Though I do have a son, this is actually my daughter we're talking about here. Perspective is returning, with the passage of days. Nothing more to report, at the moment. It is good to have some support, I am keeping mum in RL until after tests as I see no point in stressing out extra people unnecessarily.

Balls, sorry, I even checked to see if you'd mentioned gender, and still got it wrong...

Good for you on pushing for the appointment anoesis. Even if you're not telling many people in your life, I hope you tell enough so you can have support.
