Quick update from Stoke Mandeville Hospital

Rebecca here with a quick update from Mum, who is still in Stoke Mandeville Hospital. I am writing it for her as she tells me what to write.

She is getting stronger everyday. If this continues, mum may be allowed home if medically possible.

I’m sure when mum is home and settled she will continue with her much loved blog and connection to you all.
Mum knows you are all thinking of her, but she still needs some space for a few more days. She appreciates the messages from you all.

Married to Steve, I have two children - Rebecca and Richard. Steve has two children, Lauren and Chris. Rebecca lives with us (nurse Rebecca) and my mom Judy also has become nurse and housekeeper but lives in the West Midlands. My son is in the Army and comes home when he can. I am 47, born in 1967 and I was told I had bowel cancer on 22nd Feb 2015 and this blog is my journey through it. I hope it helps you as you were the reason I started it.

  8. Thanks so much for the update, Rebecca. We’ve been thinking of you all and sending our prayers for the whole family. There’s no such thing as one member of a family suffering from a serious illness, the whole family suffers in their own ways. Lots of love to you all and I’m glad she’s not discharged herself this time though it sounds as if she’s recovering if she’s bossing you around to do this blog! Love to every one of you. Xxxxxx

  11. Thank you for the update. I’ve only recently discovered this blog and have spent a good while reading it through from the beginning. You are an amazing family (I sort-of knew that already, actually!) and you are all very much in my thoughts. My “Bustin Bums” calendar is proudly hanging on the wall in my kitchen. I hope very much that Wendy can be spared from pain and that she will very soon return home to be with her loving family and friends.
