Re: Diet help and advice

Hi Elle, I am so sorry to hear about your Dad, this disease is truly horrendous. The big thing I think we have all learnt is not to insist that the patients eats, we were lucky in that my husband had a good appetite, but lots of others are just like your Dad. The drinks on prescription from the GP F...

Re: This seems to be all happening too fast

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Oh Mo, I have been through all those feelings, its just so shit being on your own.

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo, Trevor's dressing gown was behind the bathroom door until my Son and his family moved in at the end of August, so don't worry yet. When I finally moved it to the bag to go to the recycling bin, I then took the bag to the recycling at our Adsa, by the time I had done my shopping it was dark, the ...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

Mo, as stupid as it seems that feeling of control is so good, I was much the same but didn't do the 22 second thing I must admit. As you say its the last thing you can do for your beloved Peter and you want to send him off in great style. Its so lovely that you have had lots of support, it is needed...

Re: Thanks for sharing your experiences . . .

They are all exactly right Mo, and that's were the hospice is so great they let you do it your way. I wanted to be with Trevor 24/7 and hold his hand, they were there in the background, and I knew when I needed them they would be there, peace of mind for me. I didn't want the boys to see him die, I ...
