Re: GARY

Hi Deb, I have been wondering how you and Gary were doing for awhile now as you disappeared for a bit. Very sorry to read that Gary isn't so good, believe me I know how hard it is to watch someone you love fade away before your eyes. That's why my thoughts are with you now. Whatever happens, you are...

Re: Ted 29.8.46 - 9.4.12

Dear Nicki

So sad to hear Ted has gone, you've been such a rock and a help to others that it pains greatly that you have to go through this.
My thoughts are with you.

Re: Steve's Cancer has Spread to his Liver

Hello Diane.. I've been reading your posts and it does sound like your Steve is going through the mill, so I hope the endoscopy went well today, not too painful. My mother never quite made it to chemo ( 1 session ) but I remember being told about mouth ulcers/soreness and we were told to give Mum as...

Hello Rich.. I'm very sorry to hear of your Mums passing,I have a fair idea of how you must be feeling now but take comfort that someone so special to you isn't suffering anymore.
