I have just read Dawns very sad news and all the replies that have been sent to her and her family. To be facing having to leave her teenage daughters and husband Is so cruel, my heart goes out to her and her family. I am in the same situation, but I am a lot older than Dawn (81 ) and feel so guilty, because I am not handling it very well. I have Oxygen to hand,to help with my breathing. But my biggest problem is the fluid which has built up throughout my body Does anyone else struggle with this , and if so any advice that you can give me. Would be welcome. Unfortunately my Palliative Care nurse is away on enforced Semi Retirement leave for a month, and there is no temporary replacement. Please don't suggest. GP. !!! I have n appointment on Tuesday at the local Hospiice and hoping that they will be. able to help. But Tuesday seems such a long time away. I am sending you all very big hugs and praying that one day a cure will be found for this wicked disease, and all the other Cancers, particularly ones affecting children and young people. In tears now ,, so no more to say
