Hello Rosie

I was saddened to get your email and to hear of Bob’s likely diagnosis.

To attempt to answer your questions properly would involve a very lengthy email – there are so many “what-ifs” and secondary questions and comments. If it suits you, I would be more than happy to phone you and try and answer your questions verbally – I think it would be much easier and more comprehensive. But remember – I am not a health professional.

If you would like that, perhaps you could send me your phone number and suggest a suitable time or times to call, and also to consider whether or not you wish Bob to be involved in the discussion.
