My dad went into hospital yesterday. I don't know if I mentioned it but he's got prostate cancer and that moved into his spine last year. He had an operation to put some metal plates in his spine and correct some things and he's struggled to walk since but on the whole, he's been ok.

The past could of weeks though he's been in loads of pain. So much that he can't sleep and it was even making him sick. He went into hospital yesterday to find out what's going on.

Between him and my father in law, things are pretty shit at the moment.

Very sorry to hear this, Vision. Hope the hospital can make your dad comfortable quickly.

Best wishes to all of you.

Best wishes to your father and father-in-law, TheVision. Must be a stressful time.

My Dad seems largely back to normal now. Still a bit breathless, but he's back driving again and they've been to their caravan in Wales a couple of times, so normal service is resumed. Hopefully next time he has something bad, he won't leave it as long before going to hospital.

A first world problem, but irritating:
Wife bought tickets in November for her, me and her cousin to do the Crystal Maze. Being sensible (?) she paid extra for cancellation protection.
She subsequently got pregnant.
Crystal Maze specifically forbids pregnant women from taking part.
See Tickets say their cancellation protection specifically excludes pregnancy as a reason for cancellation.
Result: she can't attend (and neither me nor her cousin want to attend without her, frankly) and can't have a refund.

See Tickets are being utter arses about it. :(

Try ringing their customer services team and see what they can do, subsequently inform them that you'll put it on social media.

Did I tell you all that my dad is in hospital again? Last September he had an operation on his spine as he had a cancer grow in there. It’s mucked up his walking and took a while to recover but he kept his spirits high.

Last week he was having more pain in his lower spine so off to hospital he went, fearing that the same was happening again. Anyway… long story cut short, they’re kept him in and he’s had some sessions of radiotherapy to ease it.

I found out last night that they want him to have Chemo starting tomorrow. So yeah, pretty shitty stuff. With my father in law and my dad both quite ill at the moment, I’m surprised I’m not a massive ball of stress! It’s certainly made me think about a few things.

Remember to take care of yourself, man. Stress can do funny things to your mind and your body. And remember, if you need anymore to call you a cunt for a hug, we're here for you.

All ll this. Anxiety and stress can manifest in ways not everyone might initially think. Lean on us if it starts to weigh you down, chippy xxx

Over at our head office in Belgium and they just paid my boss off :(

Real shame as he was a nice guy and pretty much the best type of boss I could want in that he left me alone to do my job but would help me if I needed it.

Anoying as well, I could see the writing on the wall and had been telling him he needed to look out for himself for the last year, but he was too easy going a personality to really react to it.

And.. now he's back in Acute Medical Unit for an overnight stay again. Thankfully not the major breathlessness of before, but a rather more unusual problem of fluid all over the place. He's mainly leaking from the elbows, which is odd in itself, but unfortunately the bigger problem is down below, where his scrotum is a damn sight bigger than it should be. And as I'm there as translator, I have to stay put as the doctor looks at my dad's balls, while I try to stare solely at the doctor.

They think it's kidney-related, but they'll know more tomorrow. On the plus side, the nurse on the night shift that was helping him is frankly stunning. :)

Another oddity - it's only a small ward, 20-something beds, and three of the patients in there have the same first and last name, one being my dad. And as I've got the same name too, there were four of us there this evening.

A close friend of mine got married 8 weeks ago. I found out over the weekend that he's been seeing someone else since March.

A pretty shitty thing to do by all accounts.

Yep. She found out earlier in the day, before I did.

She's since gone on a Facebook rant which has turned into a witch hunt on my friend. I'm not defending him in the slightest but I don't agree with airing your dirty laundry like this. We shall see how it develops.

That's some serious lack of balls to go through with a wedding while having an affair.

:this: A few of my friends do that on Facebook. I don't think they realise that it just gives off the impression that they're nuts, especially when whoever they're bitching about won't read the statuses anyway.

Absolutely. I really do feel for his wife as I can't imagine what she's going through and she's obviously trying to deal with it the best she can.

One of our friends has posted on there saying that she shouldn't really be sharing this stuff as now all manner of random people will be reveling in their misery.. and he's right! One of her Facebook friends has said "I've never met the bloke but he does look shifty to me...".

I would use many words to describe my friend. Shifty would be the absolute last.

I'd love to but I don't have access to it. I have a Facebook account but have zero friends on there and only use it to look at a retro video game shops page.
