Dear Suz, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you find comfort knowing there is no more pain for your dad. I too lost my mother two weeks ago...she died holding our hands.

She looked stunn...

Re: MY MUM

Been a while, mums pain cries can be heard in another country and her nausea bouts reflect being swallowed by the ocean :( symptoms were NOT being controlled well at all by her oncologist or pall care team.

Re: MY MUM

Thank you nikki for the encouragement. I find comfort to hear the replies of others, it feels like I'am not alone. Mum has deteriorated quickly. In the past month she has not been outside the house, just sleeping and sitting (mostly in pain). She has also gone off her food and the nausea will not ba...

Re: MY MUM

I feel numb, no feeling, no sadness, no tired, no anger, no energy. Gemcitabine chemo didn't work for her. Her tumours are bigger, pain worse, nausea storming. Its like she jumped of a cliff and crashed, she's soo low right now. We just spent a few days in hospital trying to control the evil three (...
