Hi everyone just needed to chat. We have been here in Victoria since Oct 7th. We was lucky enough that we got a rental and i got a job straight away. About 3 weeks ago my sister told me my dads got cancer and needs treatment, he knew about this before our farewell party but told people it was a stomache ulcer and kept it quiet (apart from my stepmum). He told my step mum you must not say anything because " i dont want to spoil there big adventure" im so proud of him for being so selfless or unselfish (english, not my strong point). Ive spoken to him twice early on then got all excited about setting up Skype with my sister, so boxing day ,the day ive seen my dad at xmas for the last 21 years i was all set. Then about midday Uk time i got atext saying dad cant see you on skype as chemo has shattered him and he cant get up, to say i was upset is an understatement i lost it and was all for a flight to uk. I didnt go home and still have not spoke to my dad as he is too poorly.But ive been assured he is ok just really poorly from chemo. 4 weeks ago im living the dream, then this happens, its a bloody shock. Cant afford to "just pop home" any way i am home, but this is the things that test you. Please dont say " if it was my parent id be straight on that plane, because its not that easy. Any way i just wanted to " tell someone" Pez.
