Sorry, Clare. :hug:

I absolutely dread either of my grandparents going. They've never been anything other than bloody brilliant to me.

The news about Gary Speed has hit me like a hammer. He was a childhood hero of mine, and was doing such a fantastic job with the national team. Gutted. RIP :(

I respected the hell out of him as a player. It doesn't affect me that much, I never knew the bloke but it's a shock. :(

My sister's doctor called today and told us about the tests results from the recent samples they took from her - basically, it's bad. It's really f'ing bad. They gave mum a choice - either we put my sister in the hospital for 6 weeks where she'd be put on Intravenous therapy (a drip), and nothing else in terms of food.

OR, we were told, they'll put her on special "energy drinks" which contain vitamins, her medicines and everything she'll need. They're disgusting and horrible, and she hates them - she was on them when she was 8, and watching her be forced to drink it felt terrible. She won't be allowed any solid foods at all, only these drinks and the occassional broths and water. For 2 months.

I'm really gutted for her, and she doesn't even know all this yet - mum and dad are going to have a chat with her tonight to talk her through it - she's only 14, it's just not fair. She'll have to do it to let herself heal, because right now she's in pain every day, pretty much all the time.

I'm so sorry to hear that Lis :( whilst either option sounds horrible for her, I hope it gets her on the road to recovery. :hug:

Thanks guys - and yeah, we're all going to stay positive whilst around her atleast, and mum and dad will help her more than anything. We'll keep reminding her that things will get better in the end.

That's a lot to lay on somebody so young. I hope it works out OK for you all.
