Re: Thank you and our story... but we are not that far yet!

Oh dandy this is so sad I don't come on very much since losing mum but from reading Pw post I knew I had to reach out. Your situation right now sounds exactly how mums played out at a & e!!!!

Re: Totally in awe of my wonderful Husband!

I'll be in touch tomorrow my love hope you've ma...

Re: Feeling totally lost

Thought I'd pop back on, still feeling lost, more than ever. It was mum's birthday on Thurs then a month since she died on Friday. I still feel dazed, angry and alone as my dad, aunt and others are experiencing the same it's sometimes hard to talk about what's happening inside you incase it upsets t...

Re: frustrated

Oh Sheena, I'm so sorry to hear about your brother, glad you are signed off and have some medication to help you sleep. This world is a cruel cruel place. Nothing much I can say as I'm finding personally after losing mum not much does actually help. Sending love and thoughtful hugs xxx

Re: Feeling totally lost

Hello hope everyone is okay. The last few weeks still feel like a sad film I've watched, I've cried a couple of quick tears in unexpected places like HSBC and Morrison's but I'm managing to plug it all somehow as I'm really afraid of starting and not being able to stop. I have been referred to occup...

Re: Dealing with Mum's diagnosis...

Oh CLM I'm so sorry about your mum, as didge said on mine we've now crossed the divide, I've not been feeling up to posting after mum passed on 3rd May, I still can't come to terms it's all feeling very unreal I expect you are the same. Sending so much love to you and your family it bloody sucks!!!!

Re: Feeling totally lost

Thank you for your kind wishes, we buried mum on weds and I thought it may have taken me out of this limbo but I'm still in this weird daze, it just doesn't feel real, I've barely cried yet, even though I'm absolutely heartbroken!!! My dad and I came up with mums eulogy whilst sat with her when she ...

Re: Feeling totally lost

With a heavy heart we had to say our final goodbye to my brave, beautiful and amazing mum. She fought this cancer with such dignity and bravery right until her final breath at 11.45 last night. I feel no regrets as to how we spent her final hours, myself, my dad and brother holding her, listening to...

Re: Feeling totally lost

Lying in the recliner next to my beautiful brave mum so I thought I'd touch base with my lovely brave fellow pc warriors. Mum is fighting with her all to stay here with us, she's relatively pain free I'd say 90% of the time but she's so uncomfortable and has terrible trapped wind. She has barely eat...

Re: Totally in awe of my wonderful Husband!

Over here now just read your lovely message on my thread...big cyber hugs needed both ways I think. The ascites draining didn't seem too painful and uncomfortable for mum and the relief was immediate, mums was carried out in the iv suite and was roughly 4 hours. Ask your Dr or nurse about procal, th...

Re: Feeling totally lost

Thank you sue & Catherine, well considering yesterday they said mum probably wouldn't come round again she did, we've managed to get her into a lovely hospice this afternoon and it's so peaceful and calm there I feel easier this evening. Dr's keep reiterating she's not going to improve but I tell yo...
