Re: help...very scared!

Hi Just wanted to say how very sorry I am to hear that you are going through this awful time with your husband's new diagnosis. How frightened you must be to hear the news. He is so young, too. I'm afraid I can't offer any advice on what the doctors have told you. If you want a medical opinion, you ...

Re: Stage 4 pc 3-6months to live

Hi Mints I, too, am so very sorry to read about your husband. I have been there and lost my own husband 7 weeks ago. He was given 6-12 months and lived another 2 years, so please don't give up. I know the whole thing is a total shock and a nightmare and it is much easier said than done, but cherish ...

Re: hello to everyone

Re: Brian

Hi Gill! It was lovely to hear from you, even though it's not at the best of times - for either of us. I can't believe it was 2 years ago that you lost your dear dad! How that time has just flown, at least for me. It must have brought back painful memories for you. I hope the pain has softened over ...

Re: Am I being unreasonable

Dear Ali I am so sorry to hear what happened to your mum. To hear a terminal diagnosis is terrible in itself. To then know your Mum could have received much better care for the rest of her time must break your heart. I have recently lost my husband but I can be so grateful that he was in a caring ho...

Re: My lovely dad......please read, please help

Hi Lynne I read your article and it was so very sad and touching. You are being absolutely amazing - I honestly couldn't face doing what you are doing. All I've done is made some cakes to sell at my daughters school and will probably do things along that line in the future. I enjoy baking and always...

Re: Brian

Hi Lesley Ann Thanks for your kind message. It was 5 weeks ago today. Seems so much longer....missing Brian so very much. My daughter and son-in-law helped me scatter his ashes off the Dorset coast last weekend. He loved that coastline and I like to think a tiny part of him is going to travel the se...

Re: Bad news....and more bad news

Hi Nicki Been away recently, so only just read your post. So sorry to hear about Ted. Not one, but two worries now.... At least he can have the other chemo, so fingers crossed it works well for him. Hope something can be for his foot, too. Just want you to know I'm thinking of you and I know you wil...

Music

I heard the most beautiful song this weekend. Some of you may find it will comfort you. It's called "To where You Are" by Josh Grogan. You can find it on You Tube.

Re: Brian

Thank you all for your kind messages. It is a comfort to know that others are supporting you through your darkest time. I seem to be coping by blanking out a lot of things and keeping busy but there is a huge hole in my life now. Brian was my husband, soul-mate, best friend and my rock. Always there...

Re: Some good news

Hi Deb So pleased to hear your good news! Thanks for your kind comments. I'm finding it hard to contribute to the forum at the moment, but pop in now and again and am thinking of you all still fighting. Brian had two lots of radiotherapy and didn't have any real side effects. Main thing is - keep th...

Brian

Today I lost my wonderful husband, Brian. I was with him at the end and it was peaceful, pain free but still a huge shock.
Feeling very numb and not sure what to do with myself right now, so thought I would do this.
