Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo your post takes me back to last year. Dad had all the same issues minus the confusion but plus terrible swelling of everything below the ribs to his feet. The hospice was our saviour for symptom management, support for all of us and comfort for dad. He came out much better than he went in. I hope...

Mo we are all with you every step. Hoping for moments of peace for you,Peter and Boo. It's a hard slog. Chocolate and tea are a good option tho you are a stronger woman than me to resist a stiff drink!! X

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo, making dog coats is highly commendable. Jake loved to dress up and insisted on fleecy jammies for when the weather got cold (by Australian dog standards). My lovely friend had a natty line with front legs and a scoop up to the nether regions. Worked a treat. Glad your patient has stabilised some...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo I feel your pain and still remember sitting on the stairs outside dad's room before he went to the hospice for symptom relief. You want to help but you can't and in his case he didn't want assistance from me with toileting but couldn't manage on his own and kept yelling go away I am ashamed. Plea...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo I felt both anger and resentment at times and then guilt at both emotions while nursing jake and when I was with dad. Dad was also angry so we had a quite a few angry days. Its normal both at death and birth. I bet few first time mothers could put their hands on their hearts and say they never fe...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

So lovely to hear from you. I'm glad your patient managed to get out and about. I'm not sure if I'm ashamed to say I've seen the multiple videos of cats on iPads chasing fish etc. I've no doubt if you bought Boris one he would use it!! Btw when I typed boris in autocorrect gave me Borgia- do you thi...

Re: 36 yo adv pancr cancer patient treated in France

Have been thinking of Stephua and her family today. I hope it is of comfort that one day when they find the key to beating this awful disease, the efforts of people like Ruth, stephua, you and your dad dandygal, have paved the way for those whose lives will be spared. X

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo did you have to wear black plimsolls to PE like we did with no laces just an elastic front? Unfortunately I have had the other PE in fact multiple PE so I do know that terminology. And in my job I am learning more and more interesting medical terminology gotta love acronyms. Glad your patient has...

Re: Overwhelmed

Hi Fifi I'm sorry to hear that you are so distressed but you do need to accept what the doctors are telling you. As dandy gal says we have internal and external lumps and bumps. I had a recent ct which revealed a 1.8 cm mass on my adrenal gland. They call them incidentalomas literally as they are of...
