Re: How long and how much will mum suffer

Thank you all, the huge amount of replies means a lot. I've been feeling like I failed her and dad, as it was me who did the work in terms of finding out what help was out there and talking to, doctors, social workers etc. but in the end I failed at getting the one thing they wanted. I know this a n...

Re: How long and how much will mum suffer

Thanks. Firstly wanted to say that my dad had exaggerated a bit on the phone. When we got the full story my mother was being washed and dad was stood outside the room. The nurse came out for something, closed the door but while it was open my mother could be seen nude in the chair. Still a bit undig...

Re: How long and how much will mum suffer

Thanks Nikki, It's getting too much now. Spoke to dad this morning and he's really had enough of this ward. He said last night my mother was laying on the bed in the nude with the door of her room wide open and people walking past. I'm in total disbelief, I can't understand how anyone working on a w...

Re: Need some advice if possible !

I'm going through very similar to you right now and have all the same questions. I wish I could give you answers, it's such a roller coaster. I know how heart breaking it is, you just want to hold them and make it all go away like they did when you were little. I hope he's feeling better soon, hugs ...

Re: How long and how much will mum suffer

Didn't see her yesterday. Other family members took dad but I kept in touch. He asked about getting her home but they needed to make sure they can cope at home first. All the relevant people were meant to go and see her but no one did and I doubt anyone will over the weekend. Dad says she looks sad ...

Re: How long and how much will mum suffer

Thank you for you kind words. She's been up and down, much more herself after they pumped loads of fluids into her but it didn't last. She's getting awful pain and they take so long to come with oramorph she lays there in agony and that's when she looks so frail, it takes a while for her to feel bet...

How long and how much will mum suffer

My mother was diagnosed only a few short weeks ago after months suffering pain, being unable to eat and ending up bed bound. Her diagnosis was missed by a few doctors although I had suspected that cancer would end up Being involved. It was a shock though, when the diagnosis finally came, when we wer...
