Re: Hello

Hi all.....well, he's back home. He couldn't settle at all and seemed to be even more down than before he went in. He stayed for 4 nights and I got a phone call yesterday morning to say he was very tearful and wanted to come home and he was back within the hour. Over the weekend his hands filled wit...

Re: Hello

Hi Veema and Mo. .....I'm hoping that the swollen legs and feet will be managed better in the hospice as he has a huge blister on the top of one foot which the DN has put a see through type dressing on but warned us of leakage if it bursts. The hospice is only about 15-20 minutes drive depending on ...

Re: Hello

Just an update .....Allan is going into the local hospice tomorrow for a few days for symptom management. He's been very down and his mobility is poor despite the zimmer frame but his feet and legs are swollen and heavy. He started an antidepressant but he became very confused and then had a fall in...

Re: Hello

Hi Mo....I meant the OT not the physio. Don't know why I said that! It's a beautiful day here and hope it's the same for all..and as for Peter saying he's fine, well, this seems to be a man thing. I have to prompt Allan to get him to speak to the professionals and then I feel as if I'm putting words...

Re: Newly Diagnosed

Welcome back Elaine. Isn't this a fabulous forum? There's support for the carers, patients and the bereaved. You know you'll get advice and help from others who are in your position. Take care, look after yourself and be selfish! You're the priority now.

Love Vee xxxx

Re: Hello

Hello Elaine....so glad you're back on the forum to keep in touch. I've just seen Marmalade's response so must reply to that......since I posted Allan has decided to accept a zimmer and a frame around the toilet. We're waiting for the physio to get in touch re these items. Allan had a good chat with...

Re: Thoughts from the PC frontline

Lovely news W&M and thanks for the account of the marathon and I'll bet there were plenty of throats with lumps in them. Long may your good fortune continue.

Re: Hello

Thanks for the tip PW. I have a hand held fan somewhere that I used for the hot flushes! You're right about time out from cancer talk and worries. It was a great few hours chatting and not having to worry about getting back as Allan wasn't alone. Oddly enough it was the same feeling as getting out w...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

You've kickstarted the forum, Mo. I'm smiling at Boris' antics. Our old Springer was very brave at barking at other dogs through the fence but used to dash into the house if they barked back.

JK deserves to be sworn at and good for Peter for doing it...carry on cussing, Peter.

Re: Hello

Oh, yes Mo....We play the same scenario with phone calls...we have the in and out of bed and not fancying anything to eat and then he's talking to his brother on the phone and telling him that he's ok. We had a good old natter over lunch...4 women all talking and laughing at the same time ...we can ...

Re: Hello

Hello again.....since my last post things here are on the downward slope again. Allan hasn't eaten properly all this week...just a spoonful or two of porridge or a yogurt but we've been here before and then his appetite has rallied again. I seem to place a lot of emphasis on eating ! He's been very ...

Re: Magical mum

Hello Sophva....you're having a normal reaction to having lost your lovely Mum. All the what ifs that you feel are usual when we lose someone we love. My mum died over 40 years ago and she comes into my mind every day at some point and occasionally I feel guilty because she was ill for such a short ...

Re: Hello

Hello again....because of the sad news on the forum in the past week I felt uneasy posting about our situation but I know you'll understand , so.......Allan has gained 6lbs in weight and we're fixating on this as it's the first gain since he began to be ill over a year ago. He's lost over 5 stone so...
