My beautiful 6 year old boy Ruairi was diagnosed with a very rare and aggressive type of leukaemia last week, we're keeping him at home and he's having gentle medication. As it's terminal and strong chemo would make him sick and don't want to put him through that for just a month or two more.
We are totally beside ourselves with grief right now.
He's having all the love and attention we can give him and lovely walks and his favourite food.
Cherishing he days with him and weeping in the night.

Oh Jane, it saddens me to hear this. Yes, enjoy each day and I wouldn't have chosen chemo either. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Kim

Very sad to hear about Ruairi and his illness. Enjoying his company and drowning  him in love is the best thing for both of you in the time that you have. Hugs for him and you from us.
