Cancer Sucks

Peritonitis


Wednesday 23 November 2016 saw Ryan's first check up with the GP nurse since being discharged after his emergency surgery, which is a whole other story that I will tell in a separate post titled Peritonitis


On the way to the surgery in the car Ryan begins a conversation and it goes something like this:

Cancer Sucks

Me: You need to write us a blog post Ryan about your cancer, can we do that?

Ry: Cancer sucks, don't get it!

Me: That's it? That's your advice for anyone reading our blog. I doubt anyone reading this is actually looking for ways to get cancer.

Ry: I had so many problems growing up, trying to cope with my autism and now this lymphoma thing. I haven't been a very good child have I?

Me: Don't ever say that. You are perfectly awesome. You have been dealt a poor hand of cards, I won't lie and you need to bluff your way through.

Ry: I know what you mean mum. I am going all in on a high card.



How amazing is this 15 year old boy? A survivor that is wise beyond his years. My hero 💜💚💜

  1. How can someone so young be so wise he puts so many adults to shame. Wisdom beyond his few years.

    1. Thank you for your lovely words. I am so sorry for my delay in replying. Anyone who know Ryan, is aware his sense of humour can be very dark sometimes, but then he says, nuggets like these.

  2. Sounds like he has a very similar attitude to the one I had! Very switched on for his age!

    1. Hi Jess, I think humour has helped us all through as a family. Also being open, honest and to the point about things too. Trying to keep it real, yet light. Thank you for joining our journey. x
