Hope is a dangerous thing.

So I haven’t been writing on here for a while because I’m trying to spend all my spare time with my mother. I wrote a few weeks ago about her cancer and what the doctors had told us. The thing is, they were a little wrong. Not a lot wrong, but just a little.

They gave my mother an estimated 2-4 weeks left to live. Tomorrow marks 5 week’s since we were told that, and her blood levels aren’t great right now but they are holding up against the leukaemia. Hopefully this week we find out if she is recovered enough from her last treatment to possibly start treatment again. I hope so, I’m not ready to say goodbye to her yet.

Hope is a very powerful and dangerous thing. You see, a couple weeks ago I was going through a process of mourning for someone who hadn’t died yet. It’s a very strange feeling. All hope had been taken away and it left an empty hole in my heart. The possibility that we might be able to treat further gives me faith again. I just don’t want it to destroy me.

Youre life seems amazing. But how could u afford to travel that much? Do u have a job? And how are you able to just go to the usa and stay for a year and get a job there?

There is only one way I was able to do what I did, and that was work, work, work!

I worked several jobs and saved as much as I could. I then applied for a US Visa for Australians and got it (which I wasn’t expecting), and worked and saved while I was over there. I don’t come from a wealthy background at all.

While many people are out there buying new iPads, BMWs and bottle service, I’m buying plane tickets to see the world.

If you only had a few weeks left to live.

If you were told that you only had a few weeks left before dying, what would you do? This is a question that gets thrown around hypothetically quite often, but if you were to REALLY think about it seriously, what would you do?

My mother, Nicki, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia last year. After many forms of treatment and recovery attempts, we have been told that she only has a few weeks left until the cancer takes her life. While I have cried and emotionally exhausted myself, I’ve decided to be grateful that we do have this time left with her to say goodbye and do the things we always wanted to do.

After we found out I asked her “what do you want to do over the next couple weeks?”. Her response was something that I did not expect.
"I want to lay under the stars, walk on the beach, eat noodles and spend time with my children" she told me between tears.

Most people say that they would travel the world or spend all their money. And I suppose to someone who is alive and has plenty of time left, that does sound like a great way to spend your last few days. But that isn’t the case.

When walking her out of the hospital this morning she said, “mmmmm, the smell of freshly-cut grass”. It made me realise how important the little things are. You can have all the diamonds and cars and fancy houses in the world, but when it comes down to the things that matter it’s the stars, the beach, your family, and freshly-cut grass that you’ll yearn for.

Don’t let them go to waste.

I love you, Mum.
