Meeting To Be Held At The ARC Tomorrow Regarding Dad
Mum only found out this the other day when she happened to ring up about Dad's chemo (or lack of it) and it is to be held tomorrow at 11pm.
Everyone connected with Dad's care will be there as it's important for them to clarify when he is to have some more chemotherapy. Dad has been telling Mum that he's supposed to be 'going to Preston to have a false leg fitted' and Mum is up in arms about this as it's giving Dad 'false hope.' The reason she says this is due to the fact Dad is becoming thinner by the day because he is having no chemotherapy attacking the cancer. Granted, it's not going to cure this particular type of cancer (or shrink it in any way) but Mum wants assurances that this prosthetic leg thing isn't getting in the way of what's more important right now and that's the chemotherapy. She is desperate to get the consultation regarding the chemo brought forward as 30th March is too far away, in her view.
Dad is becoming fixated on his leg, which is understandable as that's what he is in the ARC for, but to give him hope about a false leg being fitted when his cancer should be the priority now (especially since the stump has healed brilliantly) is unforgivable really and Mum wants answers.
So do I and I'm planning on being there on Thursday for another 2 weeks or so.
