Izzy, you're not alone.

Last year, my MIL died from cancer.

This year, my FIL has just about survived cancer of the larynx after undergoing a painful course of chemotherapy & radiotherapy.

Last week, my father called to tell me that he has cancer of the bladder and doesn't expect to survive for more than a year or so.

I'm going to wrap my mother in cotton wool and hide her in a wardrobe.

Seriously, I'm truly sorry and wish you and yours all the best.

Congratulations though on the additions.

Wow. Truly sorry, Izzie.

Congratulations on the little step-grandsons. You can always tell them when they are older that your folks left this world to make room for them. Your parents were so special to have made that sacrifice for them, and your step-grandsons were so special that it was worth it. I have no idea if that is any comfort or help, but I meant it to be.

You'll all be mine, in the end.

Sympathies on the loss of your parents. :( It's been five years almost to the day since my grandfather passed away of a brain tumor. Hard to believe it's been that long already.

Congrats on the babies. Hopefully you'll get to see them soon, even though they are some distance away. :)
