I'm aware that I haven't been around much or kept you guys updated. I'm sorry for this.
I'm exhausted. Here's why:
On Saturday I left to go to Sydney for my yearly holiday with my nana and a family friend [George]. Because of everything that has been going on with my dad, we were going to cancel but everything was already paid for. We agreed that if anything happened whilst I was away, I would come home as soon as I could.
We finally arrived in Sydney Monday night, since we drove. Tuesday was fun - we went exploring and got lost. Went to Madam Tussards and took a bunch of photos. I might upload some later if you guys want
Then Wednesday I went and climbed Sydney Harbour Bridge. It took almost 4 hours, but was amazing. I honestly recommend to climb it if you have the chance.
Went I got back down, my nana broke down and told me the bad news - dad was back in hospital and it wasn't looking good. We all knew that the next time dad went into hospital, he wouldn't be coming out. He even asked to go in, which just shows how bad he was. He is petrified of going into hospitals.
So we made the arrangements for me to fly back to Adelaide. I was exhausted - physically and emotionally. I didn't get home until something like 11:30pm and I just collapsed and fell asleep once I got home.
Since then I've been to the hospital multiple times a day. Yesterday dad looked great - smiling, laughing. We honestly thought he would come home.
Today was the complete opposite.
His lost feeling from his chest downwards, losing all control of his legs. He can just wiggle his big toe if he concetrates really hard.
The cancer is pressing on his spine. He can't breathe properly. His body seems to be shutting down.
TLDR, dad is worse, and probably not going to be with us much longer. All my things are in Sydney - laptop, ds, chargers, clothes , house keys - i mean EVERYTHING.
So yeah, sorry I've been absent. I haven't looked at the almost 200 devwatch messages, or the 10k deviation stacks.
