Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hello Mo. I haven't been on the forum for a while as I find it upsetting but it's time I stopped being a wuss. I've read through your postings and I want you to know that I'm thinking of you and Peter and to say that you're handling the situation with your usual good humour and strength. Allan was c...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Hi Mo....I'm happy to know that Peter is still managing the England team in among all his other sporting roles and that you are keeping the home fires burning. I loved reading the bit about him taking over the mowing...Allan used to do that with me sometimes...just come out and say nothing but take ...

Re: Our story...

Hello I'm sorry to read that your stepdad and your Mum and yourself are at this stage of this dreadful disease. I don't know what else to say to you but just be with him and make sure he knows that he's not alone. The hard reality of the situation with my late husband didn't dawn on me until his las...

Re: Carrying On

Marmalade.....thankyou for this post. It's reassuring to know that the feelings I'm feeling are "normal"...the memory, the silly eating and the lack of confidence. Your words are a comfort. I hope your move is stress-free and I look forward to many more of your marvellous writings when you've settle...

Re: New diagnosis

Hello cjg....I would dearly love to send you a miracle or a magic wand. I don't have advice on chemo either as Allan had just the one round of it. I'm not much use to you in those respects but I'm willing you both on and sending you love and strength at this time....Vee xxx

Re: Hello

Hello again ....Allan's funeral is this afternoon and I'm counting the minutes and trying to calm my nerves. I'm dreading the hearse arriving and yet, I want it to be over. The last couple of weeks have been busy and today is the culmination of our preparations. The house is quiet for now and I'm ju...

Re: Hello

Hello all....can I ask if anyone paid for a 2nd opinion before the final diagnosis? When Allan was ill at the beginning of last year he was diagnosed with bladder cancer but he still had upper abdominal pain which was investigated but nothing was found, so he was treated for vasculitis of the arteri...

Re: Hello

Hello once again.....it's been a hectic week as you will realise. My daughters and son have transported me to the places we needed to go to make arrangements, drop off certificates and to sort out as far as we can most things that have to be done. Let me tell you what I did....Some of you may think ...

Re: Hello

Good morning friends....your words are a comfort. Marmalade, once again, your words are spot on. It is a twilight time and a perfect way to describe this feeling. Yesterday was a day of a houseful of relatives, weeping brothers, weeping daughters , my elder sister telling me what I'll feel, what I n...

Re: Hello

Allan died at 11pm. May he rest in peace. His torment is over and I feel strangely calm. His family were with him and he died at home which was his, and my, wish.

Re: Hello

Hi Allan has had a bad day today...lots of ramblings and distress. The nurse has given him a sedative tonight and he's calming a little. I'll be in the chair beside him tonight and our 2 daughters are staying over. Please think of us. Love Vee xxx

Re: Hello

Hello all....just a quick update...The hospice at home are back in 2 X daily at our request. This weekend has been very difficult as Allan can't stand for more than a couple of minutes, even leaning on the zimmer, before he has to sit straight down again. This resulted in him getting off the commode...

Re: Hello

Hello everyone and thankyou for your good wishes and concern. This is where we're at ......Allan's still sleeping for about 80% of the time....eating very little, as in maybe a small bowl of soup or porridge per day...and the blister still drains and refills. The physios came yesterday with a turnin...

Re: Hello

Hi Veema.....I'll be ok. I'm a tough old Yorkshire lass and I've worked in care and I want to do this until it gets to a point when 2 people are needed to move him and then my common sense will kick in (hopefully!) and more help will be brought in. I have a deep desire to do everything for him. Has ...
