Re: Time

Well, now I get to post what I was dreading posting. Mum passed away at 4.53pm yesterday 08/10/18.
The disease won. I have no words and have never seen or experienced anything like it. My heart goes out to all who continue to battle and to their families. I am lost.

Re: Time

Dear Jeni, Apologies for not replying sooner, I haven’t had a minute, but thank you so much for the reply. If I’m honest I feel really down at the moment, mum didn’t want to go to hospital after her fall, we got her up, cleaned her up and back to bed. I did ring the hospice for advice and whilst the...

Re: Time

Kerry, I am truly sorry to hear about your dad, there is no limit to this disease and it’s wickedness. I think counselling sounds like a way to talk some of your feelings out, it’s so hard to know what to do with it all. The hospice are talking about sending mum home next week if she remains stable ...

Re: Time

Sandra, Thank you so much for your kind words. I just hope as you say the hospice can find the right drugs to keep mum comfortable. Think that’s about all I can hope for. Sending you some love too, I’m sure losing your husband has been so very hard. Thank you for caring enough to post, Love from Fai...

Re: Time

Kerry, thank you so much for your reply. I can so relate to all the “knowledge “ but feeling utterly helpless as to what to do with it. Unfortunately I cannot “talk” to my husband about anything let alone this. I’m feeling more and more alone. I’m not long home from the hospice and this afternoon th...

Re: Time

So, we are just over a week at the hospice and what a week it’s been. Mum improved on the driver with the increased meds, so the doctor thought he would see if he could get all the meds in a patch with a view to mum returning home without the driver. Poor mum, the patch was a disaster, she looked an...

Re: Time

Oh my goodness.........no two days are the same. I was lucky to get mum into the hospice yesterday and I have never seen anywhere so marvellous. The nurses, doctors, volunteers are all amazing people and made mum so welcome. The doctor spent ages with us trying to assess mums needs and I felt huge c...

Re: Time

Dear Marmalade, Thank you for your kind words. I’ve had so much frustration with gps who simply won’t help, it’s as if well in their eyes mum is “terminal” and quite frankly they don’t care. Mum is going into the hospice tomorrow so they can try to manage her pain and little bit of jaundice. She’s s...

Time

I feel as if time has stood still. My mum was diagnosed with pc in January 2018 and given 12-18months to live without any treatment. She started palliative chemo in February and managed two rounds before neutropenic sepsis took hold. Got out of hospital in April. Was relatively pain free for a month...
