Ty Sandra it's such a blessing .Steve is amazing and our family is so supportive.our grandson 3 asked Steve if he could go to the beach as he is the only one that can dig a big hole bless him.Steve said I promise you we will dig the biggest hole ever and we might even get to Australia lol.Noah then replied but pops we can't go there I will miss my Nanny to much bless him.I so hope he gets to do this .x

Sheena, that's lovely, the grandchildren are amazing aren't they, My youngest Granddaughter who is 7 has been staying with me. We lost my Mum (Nana Spana) nearly 4 years ago, and our dog Daisy a couple of weeks later, suddenly out of the blue, Sara asked why did Nana Spana and Daisy have to die she was quite upset so I explained they where poorly just like Granddad and the Drs couldn't make them better so they died. Her answer was "I know about Granddad, I cry for him all the time, today I am crying for Daisy and Nana Spana" I told her we didn't want her to be sad and to think about the happy times she had spent with them, we chatted about them for a few minutes and she soon started to smile again. Perhaps she remembers them more here as I have quite a few photos of Mum around,
Tell Steve he had better get his strength up and get his bucket and spade out ready for that "hole" its good to have family support it all helps to keep you going, take care sandrax xx

Just a quick catch up.Steve hasn't had a good weekend feeling sick and swollen feet and ankles.has been asleep for most of Sat Sun .today Monday he has at least got dressed but has laid around in bedroom all day.I'm wandering if his stent is becoming blocked as he has had it for 5 mths,do they need replacing ?

Hi fatigue is a common problem. I think if his stent was blocked his urine would be dark again and start to get jaundiced.

Hope Steve starts to feel a bit better.

Sorry to hear that Steve isn't so well. I find it really is a roller coaster ride with no 2 days the same. Hope things improve soon.

Hi Sheena,
I am so glad Steve had a holiday and enjoyed it. I suppose we all have down times even when we don't have this dreadful disease so hopefully he will pick back up again. It is good about his weight as so many struggle. Try and stay positive and take care.
Love Sue x
