These last few weeks have been difficult, surreal even. I'm not going to delve into the emotional roller coaster of what it feels like to know someone you love very much become very ill.
Many people will have been in this situation, are in this situation, and might sadly be in this situation in the future.
This month is a picture blog dedicated to my incredibly brave, beautifully defiant and spiritually singular sister, Debi O' Hehir who is currently undergoing cancer treatment in St James's Hospital, Dublin.
The images are from our climbing trips, my visits to see Deb in Dublin and images of things that have caught my eye from day to day, over the past few weeks.
