Re: Lost in a nightmare

Oh Amanda I don't have any answers but wanted to send my virtual support to you. My heart goes out to you both. Hopefully the pain will be controlled whilst in the hospice and you will be receiving lots of support. Accept all the support on offer and contact the specialist nurses on this site for fu...

Re: Taking the plunge!

Oh Bee - reading these posts through tears, I'm so sorry and my heart goes out to you and the children. It sounds to me that Chris like my Bob refused to let pc take over his life until the end. He was a true hero battling on. Where the strength comes from I just can't imagine. Take comfort from the...

Re: Devastated

Dear Sue I just don't know what to say! Read your post with tears streaming down my face the same as many others I suspect. Funnily enough I had briefly gone on facebook yesterday and seen a photo on Julia's thread I think. I thought I recognised the people in the photo but it just didn't register w...

Re: Heidelberg University Hospital

Hi Steve, I haven't been on the site since I wished you good luck for the operation but logged on today to see how you are. To say I'm sorry would be an understatement :-( However the Steve we all know and love who has picked us all up when down and given us many a laugh will I am sure carry on the ...

Re: tired

Hi Marie, So sorry to hear that your lovely mum has passed away. I remember reading your posts when Bob was still with us and feeling full of admiration at how well you were coping looking after your mum with so little support. It was so clear how much you loved her and Im sure that was reciprocated...

Re: District Nursing Teams Who Won't Deal with PICC Lines / IVs

Well done Sarah - I will also support that. How is mum doing and how are my fellow health visitors Bee and Nicki plus the lovely June and Cathy? I know Julia and Kate are enjoying a well deserved break. Also been thinking about Hilary?
Virtual hugs to all you lovely ladies

Re: Chemotherapy options

Oh Carole I just don't know what to say. I can't believe it. I've not been on here for a while or I would have contacted you sooner. I'm so so sorry. Another loving husband and father lost to this terrible disease. You were one . Of the first people I spoke to on here and shared emails with. Your ph...

Re: Folfirinox started on Wednesday and other stuff

Hi Julia and Kate, The funeral sounded very fitting for a wonderful man and I don't think your comments about ashes etc are weird at all Julia. I feel the same about having Bob just up the road and I look out of my window daily to say 'morning and goodnight'. I agree it's afterwards that it hits you...

Re: Our hero lost the battle

Thank you everybody again for the kind words. Steve and Mike I am so pleased you are both doing well and like everyone else enjoy reading your posts. Linda the thought of your dvd brought a lump to my throat but I think it is important for you to be able to tell your family your wishes. I only hope ...

Re: Taking the plunge!

Hi Bee,
Have just seen your post and I'm so sorry that you didn't get the results you were hoping for. At least Chris has the folfirinox to commence and there are lots of positive stories including our own out there. Keep strong for your lovely man Bee.

Re: Pin badges

What a lovely idea Kate, I wish I had thought of that. We are going to continue to support PCUK and Rebecca has signed up to do the Great Wall of China trek along with her boyfriend on behalf of the charity plus another 10K next. We want to also do some local fund raising so will remember about the ...
