Re: Wish someone would help him

Hi Leila, thinking of you. Hope you are okay. Did your bracelet arrive yet? Just found out that the next ceremony for some of Stewart's ashes to be buried on the pitch at SAFC is in September. It seems a long way off but it might mean I will be able to attend. I don't think I could go if it was any ...

Re: Thank you and our story... but we are not that far yet!

You go girl! keep on fighting, mixing, juicing , freezing and hoping! Everyone needs to do the best they can and everything they can for their loved ones. You seem like a strong, independent woman - just what your Dad needs.

Re: Wish someone would help him

Ah Leila, that is lovely. Its like a letter you have written from your heart to your Dad. Your Dad will know how much you did for him, fought for him, and cared for and love him. He will know your pain and he will be so proud of your strength. Leila you are not "trying" to do your best, you ARE doin...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi PW, I hope the messages got through. I agree with you, I think Leila should post a special tribute to her Dad - perhaps on the tribute wall. He sounds like he was a brilliant Dad with a very special daughter. I hope you and hubby are coping (for want of a better word), you both sound like incredi...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Jeni and Leila, it was very difficult but it was something I needed to do, for myself as well as Stewart and others like him. One thing she said they could implement as a trust was a policy whereby Creon tablets are left with the patient instead of locking them in a cupboard. Stewart was in about...

Re: frustrated

Hi Sheena, I will be thinking of you tomorrow. It is a very difficult day but with the love and support of your's and Steves's families and friends you will get through it ( despite what you may be thinking at this moment). Sandra is right , you will be amazed and comforted by the love and admiratio...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Leila, It was difficult but I managed to get all my points across. I knew the matron from when I worked there and she also knew Stewart. There was a clerical lady there taking notes (with my agreement), and both the matron and this clerical lady had both lost their fathers to PC!!!!! How weird wa...

Re: Bereavement cauncelling advice needed

Hi Guram, I was just wondering how you are? Did you arrange to see a counsellor? if so was it any help?

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi again, it caused considerable emotional distress , which is probably worse. Like your Dad Stewart had faith in the medical and nursing staff, but he was let down at the end when he needed the most care and support. I know thing have changed massively in the NHS. I was a registered nurse years ago...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Fifi, I just had a look on the website. There are some beautiful things. I love the star rings. It's not something I thought about before but I am certainly thinking about it now. Thanks

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

PW, better than Man U ..... Sunderland AFC. Supported them man and boy. I don't know many men who are not crazy about football (or any other sport for that matter). I so hope they manage to stay up, good win yesterday though. Glad to hear you are both okay-ish. I know exactly what you mean. Sometime...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Catherine, how are you? Thanks. I hope it helps. I just feel there are some simple things that could improve the care of someone else in Stewart's position. It made him so unhappy when he was fighting so hard. Some of the care was lacking, to say the least. It made a very difficult situation so m...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Hi Didge, how are you. I'm glad your dream was a comfort, mine was too. I had another one a couple of nights after that when I felt he was lying in bed beside me and I felt the weight of his arm over me. It seemed as if he was right there beside me. I have had no more since but hope I do. The footba...

Re: Finding it so hard to recall better times

Thanks Leila, I would be terrified in case I lost it. I will have a look at the website though. I have an appointment with the hospital matron on Tuesday to discuss some issues surrounding Stewart's care when he was in there before I had him transferred to the hospice. I will not rest until I have t...
