Would make you better

Standard

Saturday 3rd December
  

CBOP BEP cytotoxic chemotherapy.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

On this day, two years ago, you began the treatment that would ultimately take you from us.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

Radical, aggressive chemotherapy for poor prognosis germ cell tumours.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

You took everything in your stride; no moaning, whining or arguing.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

A week at a time in hospital, with dad and I sharing overnights to stay with you.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

Ninety nine days you endured.

We told you the treatment would make you better.

Why, why, why?

You should still be here.

Better.

Alive.

With us.

Planning for the holidays.

I miss you so very much.

Love you my darling Angel.

The Hickman line went in without problems

Dad feeding you grapes

Saline going in, prior to the chemotherapy. You would sit for hours, looking at the internet, reading about your favourite programmes and cartoons
