Hiya Foxie

So sorry for the delay in replying. Yes, hubby and I are finally reunited - today actually. He is doing ok all things considering. His grief is still very very raw and I've advised him to see the Dr as I think he needs to be signed off work for a few weeks.

I'm just being there for him, listening to him, being gentle and letting him lead the grieving process..I think that I'm doing ok so far. He gave me two beautiful necklaces of Mama's and I broke down when I saw those as she wore one of them a lot and I remembered it on her and he said he couldn't think of anyone better to have something of hers which I treasure so much. He also has a tiny piece of her shroud which I've folded neatly and put with the necklaces

Hope you are doing ok?

Hugs

Nikki

I'm so glad he is back with you where you can support him, listen to him and hug him. How lovely that you have something to keep of hers so you feel closer to her always. It's lovely that it was special to her and it will of course be now special to you.

My Grandma and Granddad passed away some years ago and I've got a standard lamp of theirs, our house has not really got space for it, it doesn't really 'go' in the room but it was theirs and so I could never give it away.

I'm doing ok though worried about dad as he's still in hospital but I've gone on (and on and on) about that in a thread I started so I won't repeat it all here.

bye for now

My MIL in the end stages of terminal cancer....she's getting worse by the day and the latest is that she is so jaundiced that they have said she is the colour of french mustard...obviously the liver is failing...how long can people live with severe jaundice such as this? We are bracing ourselves for the worst over the next few days..

She hasn't been going unconscious at all though, just sleeping a lot and her breathing is very rattly...not everyone goes into a coma though do they?

Any advice appreciated and thanks in advance
Nikki
