Rob just had some horrible news. His father has prostate cancer. He doesn't know how serious it is yet, or whether it has spread to his bones, but it is a terrible shock. I'm not letting my parents go on holiday any more. Last time they went my dad had a stroke, this time Rob's dad finds out he has cancer.
Rob has taken it really well, or is in shock, or just deals with it practically, I don't know. The trouble is he is off on a course to York tomorrow, so if he needs me I won't be there. He'll be gone until Wednesday.
I feel horrible, I was so unkind about Rob's mum and dad when we went on holiday with them. I just wish I could take those few days back and redo them.
I guess that's what life is for! To teach us a lesson. I guess we just need to let him know how much we love him and are there for him whatever!
