We told my mum yesterday. She has been through the diagnosis situation herself so offered a lot of amazing advice from both sides. She said as haed as it is, and knowing dh as well as she does, it may be better if I am not there- the way he thinks and deals with things it will only make it harder on him. So im not pushing it anymore. I would still like to be teleconferenced in so if need be I can ask any questions I may have.
She told us it may be time to move home (we are anyway but it may be better for us to do it sooner), and if we cant she will move the family to us. Made me giggle but I know she meant it. My step dad even called and said not to worry about anything financially especially if dh is unable to work for a while, they will take care of things. Thats a hige thing for him so it meant a lot.
We are waiting until we know exactly what we are dealing with before we tell anyone else. Mum said that will be the hardest part- telling the people we love whats going on. How do you even start that conversation. Its something we will work out when the time comes I guess.
Feeling a lot clearer and calmer about everything. Just taking it a day at a time. Its all we can do.
