Sinead continues lying to Daniel
BUT SHE LIES TO DANIEL ABOUT HER TREATMENT…
Pregnant Sinead decides she’s not going through with the chemotherapy for her cancer this week, for the sake of her child. However, she lies about her decision to avoid worrying hubby Daniel.
The headstrong woman has decided that it’s not fair to risk the health of her child, so is put in a very awkward position when the hospital calls her to arrange her next chemo appointment. After Daniel answers her phone, she agrees to attend, but secretly tries to think of a way to get out of it without him realising.
Later, Sinead goes off for a homeopathic massage, where she meets another young mum-to-be, Steff.
Steff tells Sinead that she also has cancer, but has decided to ditch chemotherapy in favour of homeopathy and a strict, adapted diet. Keen to hear more about it, Sinead invites her new-found pal over for a brew while Daniel is out.
Nevertheless, Sinead still has to think of a way to stop her well-meaning husband from accompanying her to the hospital for her next session. She briefs Steff to ring her mobile at an arranged time, so she can pretend that it’s a call from the nursing home, telling her that Flora is upset. The plan works perfectly, and Daniel rushes off to see Flora, leaving Sinead free to head straight back home!
When Daniel returns, Sinead tells him that the chemo was fine, and that she has decided to adopt a vegan diet to help her and the baby. Oblivious to her deception, Daniel says he’ll change his eating habits, too. However, as Steff tries to persuade Sinead to come clean to Daniel about not having chemo, will she listen to her friend’s advice?
New friend Steff has turned Sinead against traditional treatment
