Thankyou all for your kind words. Mum is very much the same still in the hospital, her only wish is she wants come home. Hopefully today things can be sorted out with palliative care team. I am thinking of you all in the same situation fighting this dreadful disease.
take care

Mum spent 5 day's in the hospital and came home. Things were ok for a few days but had to go back in last Tuesday. She had another camera procedure to see what was happening and the tumour has come through the bowel wall. It is bleeding a lot and can't be stopped. She lost a lot of blood so had blood transfusion so she could come home. Mum is at home now and we have a team of carers and nurses looking after her. The doctor has said it will only be a few days as each day passes she gets really weak and sleeping a lot. My mum has battled this awful cancer since last April but so sad it has caught up with her.

Bev, so sorry your Mum is so poorly but at least she's home with her family around her and getting the care she needs. It must be very difficult for you but you're doing everything you can. Take care.

Hi Bev,
Sorry to hear that your lovely mum is so poorly, this disease is relentless, and so cruel. I am glad your mum is getting good care, and as Sue says at least she is at home, which is something I couldn't manage for Trevor.
I hope she just drifts away as Trevor did and that you can all be with her as she passes, thinking of you all love sandrax xx

Today mum is very tired she is feeling sick and cold. The doctor is on his way when she is part awake she is uncomfortable and very thirsty. Today is dad's birthday he passed away 4 years again mum mentioned it early morning. I'm thinking has she been waiting for today. I just want here to be peaceful.

Today mum lost her battle against this relentless disease. She was at home and was peaceful. From her diagnosis 16 months ago she has been a fighter staying positive all the time. She declined chemo and managed with pain relief. I have found this forum invaluable and knew nothing about pc at the beging of mum's journey but know lots now. I have lost my mum and best friend I can't express how much it hurt.
Thank you and stay positive
Love Bev x

Dear Bev,
I am so sorry there are no words. I really feel for you and I understand how you feel. This disease is evil and your Mum was amazing in her fight against it. Stay strong and look after yourself.
