Had a bit of bad news today


The doctors can't do anything else for Mum. They are withdrawing intervention and she will be treated by the palliative care team at home. They've said around two weeks left. I'm ok with it all actually, just thought I'd let my friends on here know x

Hi Lucy

Glad you are ok with it, your mum has had her life and now it is your turn so enjoy living although naturally it will be sad too. I hope they are able to keep your mum pain free. Look after yourself, keep well and give your children a hug from me as well as having one yourself.

I don't think we have posted to each other before,I logged in and your was the first post I have read today.

If you don't mind me saying you sound very brave and I would imagine you are a pillar of strength to your mum and family.

I find it to be a difficult time at this stage when caring for a loved one but I also think it's a special time and believe me your mum will know you will always be with her.

Take care,hope you don't mind my post to you

Thoughts are with you


What lovely words of support you have already had in response to this news. Take care of yourself at this special time, it may give you some of the most precious memories Alongside the sad ones xxx

Oh my goodness. I was not expecting to log in and see so many lovely, kind replies. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Mum came home from hospital and seems to have perked up a bit in the company of her own surroundings. I am hoping that she has some more 'lucid' days before she passes. I guess it's I possible to tell what the next few weeks have in store for us all, but it's so lovely to know that I have the support of my friends here x
