Re: How to stay positive?

Hi Girls, I feel for you, I have been on your journey with my Dad, no doubt it is a hard road to be on.

Re: My poor mum pushed from pillar to post

Dear Carolyn,
Sorry to read about your dear mum. I lost my dad 2 weeks ago and like yourself found the hospice a fantastic place and they made everything so much easier for dad. Such an awful disease and more needs to be done!

Re: Living day by day
