I couldn't go with her to her scan appointment & she was sure she'd be fine going alone - after all, a scan is, of itself, a mere walk in the park ...
BUT ... there was a man in the waiting area who was on his mobile, describing the size & location of all his secondary tumours - & the short prognosis he'd been given ... & this (understandably) freaked her out!!
When she got back, Laura somehow managed to lodge a claw in the needle hole left from her latest blood-test & this proved to be the final straw - my poor sis just dissolved.
She's massively over-exhausted & is sleeping now.
(Laura hasn't quite recovered from her shock either.)
Tomorrow is another day & I hope they'll both feel better after a good night's sleep.
