First Day Back To School 2019 | January âś¨

Riley went back to school yesterday!

I actually set my alarm early to get up and ready before waking Riley up so I was verrrrry organised this morning which is one of my new year resolutions!

I woke him up and told him it was time to go back to school and he burst into tears, saying he didn’t want to leave me. Actually made me abit upset tbh. He gets so used to been at home with me and coco when school breaks up for holidays.

Once we got to school and he saw his friends he was obviously fine.

He managed to have a good day and even did PE outside for a while.

As he was so good his Auntie Alice treated us to Pizza Hut for tea which is his favourite! Who’s favourite tea isn’t pizza!

With me doing slimming world I got a flat bread pizza with lots of salad and it was lovely! Counting my syns for the next two days with that. So I will see what the scales say to me on Friday…. wish me luck!

So its back to the school runs, back to making small talk with the mummies. Haha.

Even when Riley wasn’t eating and sleeping a lot, i didn’t think cancer.

When I was taking Riley to the doctors for 3 weeks in a row, i didn’t think cancer.

When me and my mum took him to the emergency doctors, i didn’t think cancer.

When Rileys eye was swollen, i didn’t think cancer.

When I was sitting in the A&E with my mum and Riley waiting to see the doctor, i didn’t think cancer.

When Riley spent 3 days in the hospital on antibiotics and fluids, i didn’t think cancer.

When Riley had a eye test and got sent to the hospital for a CT scan, i didn’t think cancer.

When I was sitting in a room with Riley on my knee been told that they had found a lump on the CT scan, I didn’t think cancer.

When Riley had test after test after test, I didn’t think cancer.

Until it was…

When we were sat in a room meeting the oncologist team and nurses, I didn’t want it to be cancer.

When Riley was having an anaesthetic for the first time, I didn’t want it to be cancer.

When Riley was having a Hickman line placed into his chest, I didn’t want it to be cancer.

When we were admitted onto the children’s oncology ward, I didn’t want it to be cancer.

When you notice all the bald children on the ward and wonder why your child is there, I didn’t want it to be cancer.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please educate yourself on the signs and symptoms of Childhood Cancer!

🎗Hello September. CCAM #ablogaday #day1

Today is the first of September. It’s also the first of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Childhood Cancer is something I never thought I would truly know so much about.

On the 28th of November 2014 I got the most devastating news. My beautiful blue eyed boy had Neuroblastoma. Stage4. High risk. It was so difficult to see Riley getting pumped with chemotherapy, having operations and having the most aggressive treatment they could give a child!

Would you believe that people get told Childhood Cancer is rare? It isn’t. 4000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. That’s 10 children everyday.

I’ll post the sign and the symptoms below so you are aware. Knowing the signs and the symptoms of childhood cancer doesn’t mean you are more likely to have a child get cancer. It just means you are informed!
