Catastrophe star Rob Delaney had sex twice during his son’s brain surgery

Catastrophe star Rob Delaney shared heartbreaking details about hearing his young son had a brain tumor and his tragic death at the age of two.

An American comedian wrote a book, working mindhe tells the story of his son Henry’s diagnosis and death on Rob’s 41st birthday.

Rob’s career peaked in 2016 when he won the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award for Comedy Writing. The next day, he and his wife Leah are told that Henry may have a brain tumor.

An MRI confirmed their worst fears, and the couple “sank into themselves.”

“(It) was the heaviest pain in the world,” Rob wrote in an excerpt from a published book. Times“I felt like my weight suddenly quadrupled, and an oily black vortex started swirling where my heart used to be.”

Two weeks after his first birthday, Henry had surgery to remove the tumor.

Rob said the days leading up to the surgery were “terrifying”.

“At the hotel, we were so crazy and scared, we were holding each other so tight, we actually had sex twice, hours apart,” Rob wrote.

“It seems insane to say that we had sex twice while our 1-year-old had brain surgery across the street.

“I usually omit that very personal fact. It might scare some people, but I mostly go through similar things and feel terrified, crying and anxious. I am sharing it for the benefit of other parents who may have nearly hyperventilated.

“I think we were so scared and wanted so close. The fear of what was going on around the block couldn’t erase the fact that we loved each other. Sometimes , that love manifests itself as sex at worst… many times.”

Surgeons were able to remove “every tumor they could find,” but Henry could not swallow afterwards and his condition continued to deteriorate.

Months of chemotherapy followed, prompting Leah and Rob to make “positive decisions to protect our marriage.”

“The way this turned out was simple. Even when Henry was in ICU, Leah and I had dates once a week. It didn’t have to be a fancy restaurant with tablecloths. We could walk hand in hand in the park, maybe breakfast near the hospital, but we would see each other, touch each other, check in, and see how others are doing. We then continued that communication through the rest of the day, just by touching, talking, and hearing each other.

“I hesitate to give advice, but if you’ve ever been in a situation like my family’s, don’t forget to love, touch and look into the eyes of everyone in your family on a regular basis.”

After being in the hospital for over a year, Henry was finally able to go home. He passed away in January 2018.
