Dear Sandra what an awful time! I really hope Tuesday goes ahead. I feel like I'm living in a nightmare and I would think you do too! I hope Trevor is managing and staying positive and I hope you are looking after yourself as well Sandra.
Thinking of you both.
Love Sue x

Sandra, I am really sorry to hear of Trevor's awful treatment. Sounds like they are looking for a 'scape goat' for their own incompetence. I hope tomorrow is mre successful.

Take care

Hi Sandra, like so many others are saying, this is a disgusting attitude by the hospital. You should really consider going to PALS and putting in a complaint. Some patients experience great service from the NHS but these are in the minority. For most people it is such a battle to get anything done or questions answered. You offer such great support to everyone on the forum and don not deserve to be under this amount of pressure and worry. Thinking of you both and sending you the strength to battle on. Lots of Love Annette xx

Sorry for not posting Trevor had the drain in Tuesday, Wednesday they said they could do no more and removed his fluids but put him on a syringe driver for his pain, they also stopped the antibiotics.
Thursday they put the fluids back up again, he is still chatty but very sleepy, the pain a lot more controlled now.
he is getting good care and I have a room at the hospital, just down the corridor, with enough room for the boys to stay. So we are in the lap of the gods, but he is still fighting on, love to all sandrax xx

Hi Sandra,
So relieved to hear that Trevor is receiving good care and you and your boys are able to stay, you have both been through so much. I know the pain you are going through, but you just keep going, hour by hour, day by day, you are an amazing lady Sandra.
Lots of love to you both,
Nikki

Dear Sandra,

I am so sorry to hear Trevor is in hospital. Pleased you are able to stay, I know it is impossible to leave their bedside for one moment. After all the poor treatment you have both received lately, I am so pleased to read that has improved. You need that care now.
Is the pain under Trevor's ribs? What is he taking for it?

Although I am at my Dads bed side, I still think about everyone here. I hate this cancer so much. Please give give love to Trevor for me.

I know this is so easy to say, especially as I'm struggling to do this myself, but are you eating and drinking ok? If you can't eat, drink tea with lots of sugar.

Hi Sandra,
I'm sorry to hear that Trevor is back in hospital, I don't really know what to say other than I'm thinking of you all and literally trying to send positive energy your direction as I lay here. You really do grow attachments to people on these boards and share in your pain as well as in the good times. I really hope he proves them all wrong!
Massive hug
Rob
