Dear Teal ladies,
I have been following this forum for the past year while my wife Carol was undergoing treatment, and have found it to be an invaluable source of optimism and support. I only posted once, on the subject of bowel obstruction which Carol went into hospital with on 30 December last year. The comments I received were really helpful in giving Carol hope.
Sadly, it never fully resolved and she was discharged on Valentines Day and died at home on the 9th of March exactly one year from diagnosis.
She maintained a sense of hope to the last, always taking one day at a time and refusing any prognoses, much as several of you have advocated.
I find it impossible to believe that she is no longer here, but that is something I know I will have to accept. What will make it easier will be if there is anything I can do to help raise awareness of this insidious disease. Any ideas?
Thanks for being there,
