Jnrs health - leave of absence from 606.

Hi all,

As some of you may know, and others would have felt, I'll not be partaking regularly on 606 due to my son's health.

He has been diagnosed with cancer which has reached his lymphs in the abdomen and lungs. It is treatable and hoping that while he was on the wrong end of the statistic to develop it, he will be on the right side of the statistic to beat it.

He goes into theatre on Thursday to remove the tumour and will then go through a treatment pathway that will involve them identifying exactly whay mutation is being faced and then chemotherapy to combat it efficiently.

This is immensely frightening and we trust the clinicians to do their utmost.
In the same way we must as well where it concerns his recovery for as long as it takes.

Thanks for keeping him in your thoughts, and if anyone has had some experience that you'd like to share regarding chemotherapy (adults or children) kindly do so.

I would also like to extend an apology to anyone I have offended whilst commenting on these boards.

I will revisit this thread and update as and when I can.

Thanks all, RITH.

Went to see jnrs ex team mate a couple of days ago. He has to have chemo till June, and won't have surgery to remove the tumour until february.

In his condition, due to it being just above the knee he cant put pressure on his knee it so he has to be in a wheelchair. Movement is really impaired and with it the life of everyone around him.

He is a big liverpool fan and hasnt been lucky enough yo go to Anfield in his life.
Jnr and I gonna be away, jnr wanted to be somewhere warm after he is cleared for travel.
Have given the lad and his dad our tickets for the Cup game v Everton.
Sorting the disabled ticket for him, hope they can do something.

Giving any patient of a debilitating disease something to look forward to every week or ten days helps get them through it.

You all have a great Christmas too, spread some cheer, smile at someone, dont get too hung up on material stuff.
A bit of extra kindness goes a long way.

Peks, missed the line re heart op earlier - all the best for that, if you need anyone to chat with, no problem using this thread.

Don't sweat the small stuff.. look after yourself.
