Mum Rachel has a form of leukaemia and tonight has gone to a local hospice for a few day's respite care. I am one of her carers as is older members of our family. Mum's prognosis is 50-60% good if she comes off remission. Presently she's on remission but we need a break from her, as she needs a mini holiday at this lovely peacful place. In the meantime she won't be here. I will be when needing a break from exam cramming.
