Thank you to all you lovely people who replied to my original thread- which I cannot find.
DiL was operated on last week & although they found more tumours than they expected they are confident they have removed it all. She was in ITU for 3 days but now in another hospital & doing well. Obviously after a full Hysterectomy she will be resting up for a while before Chemo starts but so far so good.
I have to say that the way they had prepared their 3 young children was amazing & they took it all in their stride. I was looking after them on the day of op & some days afterwards too & they showed no distress at all- they knew Mummy was having an op. & they would not be able to see her for a few days. It is so important that young children are told as much of the truth as they can understand.
Thank you all for your words of comfort which I appreciated very much.
