Thank you Lovely people!

Well, I completed the Virgin London MArathon yesterday in memory of Dad who died in November. Many of you sponsored and supported me with good wishes and donations to Pancreatic Cancer UK and I am extremely greatful. I've not been back here really since dad's funeral as I found it very hard, but wan...

Our dad died this morning

Hello lovely people. I will post more later but have just come to say that our dear dad David died at 09:20 this morning aged 68. Dad was diagnosed in October this year and underwent one chemotherapy session. I'd just like to say thank you once again for your messages of support and for your donatio...

Re: Devastated

Sue, I am so desperately sad for you. It is truly unfair that someone so young should lose their battle like this - particularly after such bravery in going through aggressive chemo and surgery. As a mother myself I can imagine how deepened your anguish is, though I hope you will be inspired and com...

Re: I am furious.

Your post is my pivotal moment. I've found aspects of dad's care superb - better than I could ever have imagined. However, much of what you've said rings true. Let me list some of the things I can recall just now: Failure to investigate thoroughly causes of high blood pressure and indigestion (GP) F...

Stop press: but remaining realistic

Okay, I posted earlier about dad's serious decline... Syringe driver, no coming home from hospital, fluids and antibiotics stopped. Well, I was reading over earlier replies to my threads and was reminded of a poster who's husband had a very bad reaction to first Chemo... I also, in the meantime, rec...

Re: Horrendous night - biliary duct

Just posting a little update... Dad had his chemo on Thursday 7th November. He was really bright and had cheeky fun being whizzed down the hospital corridors at lightning speed by a fun loving hospital porter. (Small moments of amusement count.) All was well on Thursday night but on Friday afternoon...

Re: Horrendous night - biliary duct

Hello I'm with dad, he has a syringe driver and is peaceful. We've had some lovely moments even though he is unable to speak. He caught me having a sniffle next to his bed last night and squeezed my hand. This was so poignant as he wasn't responding to speech at the time. Mum has decided she can't l...

Horrendous night - biliary duct

Hi all I'm posting from mum and dad's house as dad was admitted to hospital last night via ambulance. I was due to post really positive news as dad had been having a very positive week of eating small amounts without being sick and was feeling all the better for it. So much so, in fact, that on Thur...

Re: Can I really look after dad post surgery?

Although not a diagnosis anyone would wish for I'm glad to read your post and see you have hopeful news.

Best wishes for a successful op for your dad and post operative recovery.

Re: Waiting for Marathon news

Julia, thank you for your generosity. I just got the notification. Thanks too for your kind message. I'm sorry that it is such sad circumstances that have brought us both here, but thank you. I will say this only once so as not to sound like a stuck record, but I will run with all of you in my thoug...

KATB how is your training going? Well done you! 10k is the most I've run to date and right now I couldn't manage it!

Re: tired

Marie, I feel about what you describe, the same way I do about my mum looking after our dad. We try to help around work and children but it's mum who is there 24/7 trying to be a comfort and exhausting herself with practical stuff too. This is you, and it is your sheer love and loyalty that keeps yo...
