Got up this morning & everything was smelling of roses......

Then disaster struck.........They say it always happens in 3's......

1st) Lost major building contract today due to political company issues losing me personally best part of 35k

2nd) Got a phone call from a very close member of my family & after having one of their kidneys removed last year due to cancer has been just been told its back!! Now at stage 3 & no treatment available........

Even makes my eyes tear up now as I'm typing.....

3rd) After scrapping myself up off the floor my wife convinces me to go out for some fresh air with her. So we take the Scenic into town & have a wonder round trying to chill out from my news......

Gets back to the car & the car will not detect the keycard....... Renault Garage is closed after 5.30pm & I've virtually lost it!!!

All I can say is "What a day........"

I think these things are sent to try us hun, you just gotta keep plugging away sometimes and get on with things as best you can :eek:

I hope your family member is not in too much pain and is receiving the best possible care.

I'm not really a religous person, but i do believe in fate - everything does happen for a reason :eek:

Hi james,

sorry to hear youve had such a rough day. Having lost a member of my family to cancer a few years ago i can really relate to how your feeling. Let me tell you though you may feel now that fate is against you but bad things happen sometimes and for every bad thing that happens to you something good will come along. Hopefully that something good will come for you soon. :)

I've had bad days, but that's pretty much put them in perspective. There's no way any of them could compete with that, and I'm glad of it.

I hope that the parts that can get better do, and wish you the strength to get through the parts that can't.

Thankfully we're a very strong close family so supporting each other helps.........

If I have to beg steal or borrow to help him get through this then so be it............

After loads & loads of tests it would seem that the cancer has spread to the prostate......

Now I'm told that this can be treated but will not stop the cancer spreading......
