Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

I'm sorry no one has the right to be scared of spiders unless they've seen the buggers we have in Oz😱. Mo I am sorry to hear Peter is not feeling so sprightly but boy has he done well so far. Hopefully if changes are shown his tumour will continue to be a slower grower or respond to more treatment. ...

Re: Grumpy's Story

Thank you for your responses. I think the problem is it's not a dog shaped hole it's a Grumpy and Jake shaped hole. Two personalities who cannot be replaced. On a brighter note Dad's dog George is happy at my sisters with his vizla girlfriend holly. My sister even posted a picture of him running the...

Re: Support from your local Hospice

Our local hospice have our family's eternal gratitude both for the exemplary end of life care they provided for dad and for the symptom management stay he had previously plus the home visits from their lymphedema specialist. I also saw a councillor there who helped me with the loss of Jake. They too...

Re: Hello

Veebee I am very sorry for your loss. I also felt strangely calm when Dad died. I think it is partly because a lot of grieving is done along the way and partly because the suffering and loss of the people they were is so horrific. I'm glad everyone was there. Take care of yourself xx

Re: Grumpy's Story

Hi All Dad died peacefully around 11 am last Monday in the hospice where he wanted to be. Last Saturday night he suddenly spoke for the first time in ages and said to my sister 'ring my daughter'. When she said 'I'm here Dad' he said 'my other daughter'. She FaceTimed me and I managed to talk to him...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hijacking your thread justamo re dandy gals staffy. They are scramblers as well as jumpers. Jake was a staffy x. Get rid of anything on which they can get a foothold. If that's possible. Also inward leaning fence extender/mesh if that's possible and safe. He may be finding something to jump on to ge...

Re: Grumpy's Story

Justamo I too am a tree shrub planter. I have a tree in a pot for my mum which had its first ever flower on my arrival back in oz. I will do the same for jake too as I think it is lovely to have a living memorial. Best wishes to Boo.

Re: Grumpy's Story

Dad is still defying prognosis and is in good spirits though he is reasonably frail and his ascites need draining again. Hopefully that will happen tomorrow at the latest with a 2 day stay back at the hospice. He is still watching tv, reading the paper and FaceTiming us all. My sister is back from h...
