I just want to let you know that after a tough 3 months of surgery recovery and then relapse, of OCS cancer, my brave and beautiful wife ended her painful journey peacefully on November 10th early morning.
She seemed to do so well after the surgery, it was not until the UT infection 2 weeks later and her drastic drop in appetite and rapid reoccurrence of the cancer, that she was readmitted to hospital on 10th Oct and stayed there with various other complications such as kidney ureters blockage by the cancer and swelling of legs and drop in albumen that she started her path downwards. They told us beginning of Nov that there is nothing else they can do as the cancer is rapidly taking her body over and as long as she remains unwell they are not able to start the chemo. When she ate food, the cancer seemed to scavenge it and so began the vicious circle for my wife. I called her family from Taiwan who came and my wife was happy to see them and enjoyed the timeleft. Doctors could not say how long.
She was transferred to a local hospice on 3rd Nov.
After they left, she asked the doctors to put her under relaxants so that she would not wake up to extreme pain every time, so she went into a constant sleep. Even though asleep I believe she was still hearing our voices.
She passed away peacefully in her sleep at 5.15 am Thursday 10th Nov. I was at her bedside.
My daughter, although sad, and like her mother, sees the good side of this that her mother is no longer in pain or suffering.
For me, although I have been on this roller coaster ride with my wife, I thought grieving will be easier. I was wrong. Two weeks on and I miss her dearly. Every word, action is in my mind and the notion of not ever seeing her again hurts me more than I can say. I try to keep strong for my daughter, who is brave like her mother and is at a school trip in Geneva right now.
I apologise for this sentimental outbreak.
Thank you all for your support during the time i started posting and I regret that my wife never got the chance to post on this platform after her brief recovery from debulking surgery. I am sure she would have been so pleased with the support she could have got from this platform.
