What the heck. I’m having a red or two. Hello lovelies. Greetings to all. I’m cooking dinner whilst DH is out with DS2 at his basketball game. I’m feeling a little sad because FIL’s wife who has been residing in my B & B is leaving tomorrow to be with FIL in the aged care facility. She will have her own apartment. For those of you who don’t know, FIL has terminal brain cancer. They lived predominately in Canada (FIL’s wife has lived in Canada for about 45 years) and came to Australia for about 4 months of every year. Sadly last April, FIL was diagnosed with glioblastoma. We found out on Easter Saturday last year. Due to Covid 19, we didn’t think we’d ever see him again. Late last year, early this year, he was told by his oncologist that he had exhausted all treatment options and he has about 6 months left to live. They (FIL and his wife) decided to come home. Australia is home to FIL. All his family are here. So out they flew. They lived in my B & B since Feb until late March when FIL’s fall risk became too great. He went into care. Then FIL’s wife, let’s call her E had an unforseeable fall and broke her shoulder. She spent three weeks in hosptial. She can’t drive, cook etc. She will need a reverse shoulder reconstruction at some point but for the time she can delay that. She’s seeing the Dr in two weeks for a reassesment. So, in the meantime, she wants to be able to spend as much time with FIL as she can. The aged care facility has semi independant units on the premises. FIL is in the higher care area but they will be able to spend time together. He can spend time in her apartment and she can be with him. Plus there is a cafe on site. So many feelings going on. E’s kids are back in Canada and we are treating her like mum. No one knows how long FIL has left but according to the stats, the 14 month mark is coming. So far, he is well other than the tumor. :/ I had shut down my business for them and I’m in no hurry to re open it. I also work in a beautiful massive health food store. Eventually she will go back to Canada, after FIL dies. Probably not the most uplifting bar conversation going.
