Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Proud Wife,Ruth and V, you all talk so much sense. I did indeed read, and was influenced by, Marmalade's account of Louis' illness. There doesn't seem to have been any joined up thinking amongst the people who are able to sit in judgement on Peter's fate. We haven't even seen an oncologist. My feeli...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

This nightmare has got even worse. This afternoon we went to hospital for pre-op and final bloods, and had a chat with the surgeon. He was very gung-ho and practically rolling his sleeves up ready, and then mentioned that the anaesthetist was going to have a chat with us as well. A young woman in je...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Victoria, thanks for the advice about 'nothing strenuous'. Peter will judge washing up to be strenuous, but will no doubt consider swinging a golf club and lifting a heavy bag as therapeutic. I will wave your post under his nose and threaten him with a hernia if he gets ambitious. It sounds as thoug...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Ruth, that's exactly what I needed to hear right now. I might even read it out to Peter, although this forum is my secret at present. So glad to hear your progress is good; a bit of good news goes a very long way. Dandygirl, thanks for permission to pour a nice big glass of something medium dry and ...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

A rather mediocre day; it's terribly windy and I am wondering how long the sheets will stay on the washing line. I don't have a tumble dryer, but might have to think seriously about getting one. In the winter I quite often take sheets and towels to the laundry, but that's £10 a time and is alright f...

Re: Our Journey without chemo

Hello Marmalade. The Requiem Mass for your lovely Louis sounds beautiful, especially the Stabat Mater. Seldom heard these days. And thank you so much for sharing your very precious memories of your last goodbye. If you are a music lover, do you know the Benedictus from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem ...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Thank you Sandra for your kind reply. I am trying so hard to keep it all together but inside everything is in turmoil. I'm having total meltdowns over stupid things and the poor cat has wet fur on his back from my tears. He doesn't seem to mind and it's good to have somebody to cuddle when everythin...

Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

I have been a silent observer of this forum since July when I first had an inkling that my husband was unwell. He had complained of tiredness, but I didn't pay a great deal of attention - he is 84, plays a couple of rounds of golf every week and is a hard-working committee member at the golf club. W...
