Re: Wish someone would help him

I know what you mean about the time thing. It's weird sometimes. 13 days before he died it was my 61st birthday. He wrote on my birthday card (among other things ) "one day you'll smile and laugh again, and then you'll smile broader and laugh louder, because I'll be laughing with you". I don't know ...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi PW, thanks for your kind words. I hope it will help too. I hope your hubby is feeling a bit better. And I know when he is feeling a bit better you will feel a bit better too.

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Catherine, thanks for your support. I do try to focus on other things and sometimes it works but mostly just for a short while. I went for a walk in the park this morning in the rain and all I could remember was the last time we walked there together and he watched the autumn sun shining through ...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Leila, I know he wouldn't want me to be like this and I promised him I would be ok, but it's so hard! He was funny, we had the same sense of humour and I miss that. He could be grumpy when he wanted to be. We never argued, just agreed to disagree but he would go in the huff for a while. He was ve...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Thanks Didge, It sounds so self pitying but I can find very little that cheers me at the moment. Everything just makes me sad! I will keep hanging on in though. I keep telling myself he would not have wanted this for me and that I need to live this life for both of us.

Re: Wish someone would help him

Hi Leila, I just scrolled down and down, looking at all the male tributes until I found your name and you and your Dad's pictures. I often look through the tributes although it makes me very sad to see all these lovely and loved people taken in such a horrible way. I haven't looked at the jewelry si...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Leila, I'm not doing so good at the minute. I just cry all the time, I miss him so very much. I don't want to do anything, go anywhere or see anyone. I don't think I will submit our story because it is so negative. Throughout his illness it was always one step forward and two back so I can't see ...

Re: Totally in awe of my wonderful Husband!

Hi PW, so sorry to hear your hubby is suffering new symptoms. I have no advice to offer but I do agree with you when you say everything happens on a BH weekend and services grind to a halt! Stewart always started with signs of infections on Friday evenings and/or BH weekends. Hope hubby feels better...

Re: Feeling totally lost

Hi Shelda, my heart is breaking for you reading your post from last night. It,s so hard to sit there and watch one you love suffer and disappear before your eyes. It seems hospice staff are fantastic wherever you are. Stewart (my husband) was in a hospice for three weeks before he died. We wanted to...

Re: Feeling totally lost

Ah Shelda, so sorry to hear about your Mum. Its good that you managed to get her a bed in a hospice. You know she will be cared for in every possible way. The staff become like family and make you all feel loved as well as cared for. My thoughts are with you and your family. Wishing your Dad a speed...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Leila and Jeni, I do hope they will make it policy that pts keep their own Creons. Heaven knows how long it will take to implement, the wheels of NHS grind very slowly. I will keep you informed. I also think hospital nurses could learn a lot from specialist palliative care nurses. I was told they...

Re: The loss of Mum!

Hi Sue, I know exactly how you feel. Its nine weeks and one day since my husband died and I understand the unsettled feeling perfectly. Its as if you need to change things to be able to accept what has happened. I find it really hard to do the simple things Stewart and I used to do together because ...
