I have a 2yr old DD and am 10 weeks pregnant. I work part time, 4 days a week (5-6hours). My mum babysits DD during this time. I had today off because my mum had a Dr appointment after one of those voluntary bowel screen kits. She was told today that she has bowel cancer! I don't know much else but they want to hurry her in for surgery in the next couple of weeks. Said she'll need 1-2 weeks in hospital and that it's major surgery so she'll need help when she gets home.
I don't know a lot about bowel cancer so am on shock now. Stressed out and have no idea what I'll do about work now either. Obviously my mum comes first, but I do have to figure out what I'll do. Potentially she'll be unable to look after her for 6 weeks which could be longer if she ends up needing chemo also. My chances of a last minute daycare spot are low and DD has such bad seperation anxiety that we've been told by a carer before that she can't take her on.
I'm confused, stressed...anyone been through similar?
