Re: Brian

Dear Ellie I've been thinking about you and Brian lately and so was very sorry to hear your sad news when I came back to this site. You'll take great comfort in knowing that you were able to get Brian home for a while for a bit of normality and that Brian left peacefully and without pain. It was 2 y...

Re: New Year

Hello Ellie, It's good to be in touch with you. Life does go on. My daughter is 8 years old tomorrow so I hosted a kiddies birthday party yesterday and I'm taking the family out tomorrow evening for a celebratory evening meal.

Re: New Year

Hi Ellie, I feel quite ashamed to say that I have not logged onto this site for some time and tend to put it off for fear of bad news. That's not to say that I don't think about you and Brian but logging on is entering into the unknown. I am so pleased that you and Brian got through 2010 and that yo...

Re: 1 Year On

Hi Pauline, it's almost a year since my dad died. It's a cruel illness and it's torn my family apart but I won't let myself dwell on the last weeks of my Dad's life. I understand your pain but there's nothing more you could have done. My sister treats the rest of us as though we some how had a hand ...

Re: How are you all

Hi Ellie, Thank you for your message, it's so good of you to think of me. I log onto this site fairly regularly because it's the one place that I can go where people understand how I have felt and continue to feel, and I can go some way to understanding other people's experiences. I am pretty upbeat...

Re: It's tough

Lorraine So sorry to hear about your Mum. When my Dad was ill with PC we so desperately wanted to get him home and I even promised we would because that was what I truly believed. The very same day the realisation set in that he just wasn't well enough to make the journey and my family and I had to ...

Re: What next?

Hi Ellie, I'm sorry that things have gone awry for you and Brian but you must be so pleased to have your holiday booked. You saying how stressed you feel and how niggly you've both been - it's natural - such a stressful time for you both and I don't know whether it's possible to put that stress asid...

Re: Message for Clair & Blue

Hi Ellie, Well we got Christmas Day out of the way and I can say I had a good one. The comfort of knowing that I am allowed to enjoy myself helps - I know my Dad would be very disappointed if I had done anything other than enjoy the day and he would be proud that the family is rallying around my Mum...
