Re: Putting on Weight

Hi Helen I think the important thing is to let your dad eat what he wants, when he wants. Small and often is better than trying to eat a lot in one sitting! Is he taking Creon? If not then it might be worth speaking with Gp about this as it will help him digest the food, therefore getting more benef...

Re: Neighbours & friends

It is so nice to hear that people we have loved and lost are not only remembered by us but also others who's lives they touched at some point.

Well done.

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Hi Louiepc I hope by now you are feeling better! I am sure you offended no-one asking for there assistance. As friends we all presume that we would be there for everyone but there is nothing wrong with preparing people that your time to call upon them may come sooner rather than later. As for your d...

Re: My Dad has gone

I am so sorry to hear your news. An awful time for all your family. It has only been a month since I lost my Mum and still remember vividly the raw pain you must be feeling.

My thoughts are with you all.

Re: disillusioned and fed up

Hi

So sorry things are not looking good. Pamela is right, the time now needs to be spent together as family. It can be talking or just sitting quietly. My experience of the Hospice where my Mum spent her last hours was fantastic. If you have concerns talk to them.

Thinking of you all.

Endee

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

I am so pleased for you and your family. This weekend will hopefully be fantastic and full of joy rather than sadness. It sounds like you also need to remember to look after yourself as well as everyone else. Next 2 weeks need to be for rest and preparation as well as quality family time. I wish you...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Hi Louiepc So sorry you are having a bad day. It is so hard to remain strong all the time, your feelings are normal. Friends don't always think before they speak and sometimes we would wish they said nothing but of course we know they mean well. The procedure your Mum had is entirely normal. 10ltrs ...

Re: Swollen ankles

Hi C So sorry to hear about your Dad. With regards to swollen ankles that is actually the symptom that led to blood tests, that lead to liver/kidney problems that eventually led to diagnosis of pc. Would definately tell oncologist or even get in touch with Gp sooner so that any meds needed to reliev...

Re: Hit by a double whammy and struggling

John I am so sorry for your loss. I understand the pain you are feeling as it is only 1 week today that I lost my Mum. Her passing came only 1 week after diagnosis and was very sudden. I do not think though however long you have to come to terms with the prognosis the the end comes any easier. Your ...

Struggling

It is a week today since we lost Mum at 63 to pc. It was so quick, only 1 week after diagnosis and I am struggling to come to terms with it. Only 4 weeks before we were on a family holiday celebrating my Dad's birthday. We have the funeral yet to come and the thought that after that I will no longer...

Re: Out of the blue diagnosis - advice needed.

Thank you all for your messages. Less than 2 weeks after diagnosis Mum fell asleep forever. The speed and devastation of this illness has left us numb. We stayed by her side 24 hrs a day for her last 4 days with us. We just hope and pray that Mum knew we were there and did not feel alone or frighten...

Re: Out of the blue diagnosis - advice needed.

Today has been another bad day. mum is deteriorating so quickly. She can hardly stand or even hold a glass to her mouth. The district nurses have been in and we are getting some equipment to make life a bit easier for her. It is only 2 weeks since diagnosis and still nearly a week until she sees the...

Re: Out of the blue diagnosis - advice needed.

It is now nearly 2 weeks since diagnosis. We do not have an appointment yet regarding treatment options and Mum is getting weaker and so down. Don't know what to do for the best or which way to turn.

Re: Out of the blue diagnosis - advice needed.

Today has been difficult. My Mum, understandably is withdrawn and angry. Not speaking to my Dad who is frustrated by her disinterest in everything. A horrible day. :(
