Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Which i think is better than we all thought, although no time scale...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Mum has had quite a good week, seems to have got over her infection, which is great. Unfortunately at the moment I can't see her, as I'm quite poorly as are my kids, they've all got colds and I have a kidney infection. The last thing I want is to give her another infection. She sees her oncologist t...

Re: Nearly a year

Hi Lynne It's hard to believe that this awful disease can take someone so young. 39 is no age at all, I cannot imagine what you are going through and have been through. I am finding it so hard seeing my lovely mum go through it, but I don't think I could comprehend how you cope losing your husband. ...

Re: disillusioned and fed up

Hi, sorry that your Dad is so ill. Please try not to feel guilty about going home, you need to rest too, although saying that I would probably feel exactly the same as you. Be there to hold his hand, he will know that you are there and that is the biggest comfort you can both have at this awful time...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Good memories were made, and lots of photos and video were taken. She's been discharged from hospital today. thanks for...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

:D Mum's coming home for the weekend - WOOO HOOOO, I am so pleased. She has a date for chemo to start - 2 Sept. Got to make sure that she is fit and well and that we have 2 weeks to do some nice things (hopefully), before it starts. I got a slight temp, got to get over it so I don't pass anything on...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Saw Mum tonight, her temp back up again, she seemed very distracted and not herself. I read to her tonight. Cannot remember the last time I did that, but we both enjoyed it, even if it was my son's "Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe". I doubt that she will be allowed home tomorrow, but she is seeing her ...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

Thanks Endee, I really appreciate you replying, and I am very sorry to hear about your Mum. It's terrible isn't it? I spoke to my eldest yesterday, he's nearly 7. I didn't say the word cancer (my sister in law had breast cancer last year, and thankfully got over it), just said, Nanny has a lump call...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

I feel quite numb today, don't know why, nothing much has changed, but I just feel very drained by everything. Mum is still in hospital, she has just had a six hour procedure to drain her tummy, they took 10 litres out of her. Is this normal? Has anyone heard of this procedure before?, and is it lik...

Re: mum finally diagnosed.

I saw Mum today, she seemed a lot brighter, moving around more, and she had a bit of spark back in her eyes. The drip has been taken out. Apparently she now has to go on either a low or no protein diet. Her tummy is enormous though, and apparently her dr thinks that her intestines have narrowed and ...

mum finally diagnosed.

:cry: Hi, I'm new on here, I feel so sad. My mum has been ill for about 2 years, with the runs, pains etc, had so many tests, all the time coming back without a diagnosis, always being told "don't worry it's definately not cancer". Two months ago, I noticed how jaundiced she was and made her go to t...
