Life upside down

One day you get a phonecall. Your life changes completely. Our daughter Carly was diagnosed with a brain tumour on December 3rd. 2015. She underwent a craniotomy on December 5th. Then a second surgery, and a third. And other “procedures”.

She is currently in ICU in hospital, waiting for her head trauma to settle down to allow further tests and procedures. Unable to leave the hospital, living in an antiseptic world.

Mo and I are living a bad dream. Wanting Carly to be ” normal” again. Hanging on each and every word the doctors give us. One day things are regular, the next they are upside down. And totally out of control.

I thank God that we live in an area with state of the art medicine. And with caring people working in the hospital, looking after Carly.

The last two months have been unbelievable. The next year will be a challenge for us all.
