Returned home to the news that my father has been diagnosed with lung cancer.
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy to start this week.
The good news is that the specialists talk of 'cure' rather than 'palliative' objectives when discussing the effects of the treatment. It will be less than pleasant though, these things always are.
How do I feel about travelling while this is going on? Mixed feelings. Obviously I would like to be here but it is a six month treatment and what could I do? And it may make Dad feel worse if he feels that he is stopping my travelling.
Both he and Mum have said 'Go, go...'.
But I will be twitchy.
