Hello Lesleysmum. So sorry to read your sad message. Yes, I think most of us can say, ‘why me.’ And we never get an answer.
it’s good that you have put things in place especially the memory box trust as time goes on you will find some peace.
sending love and hugs to you and your daughter
It's extremely difficult trying to know what to say to you. You have been through so much, and sound as though you have taken everything they've thrown at you in your stride! You are one gutsy woman! It's great that you have also managed to do all of the practical things, which are so painful emotionally, I've done some similar things.
Your family and friend will I'm sure be extremely proud of you, try to lean on them. I sincerely hope that you get to your next birthday in November.
Love and Respect Helen
Hi Lesleysmum, you have really been through alot. I hope you make your birthday and find some piece. Do keep posting and feel free to let of steam here. Like you I have put things in place, which is one thing we don't need to think about. Have you tried a little meditation it can help. Take care xx
Morning Judy, l think the thing that hit me was that each time cancer was seen, we always got told, its good we have caught it early. But then the cancer had spread, straight to stage 4, worst type of cancer. Thinking one minute that its fine to then be told its terminal and you have 6 months at the most. My husband was so shocked. I have gone through alot of websites, and had counselling, which have helped with my issues.
I have always tried to be organised, but doing the memory boxes has really brought home to me that l am definitely in the end of life. I keep dreaming that Steve my husband comes downstairs and l have died during the night, then l keep worring about Steve and Lesleys reaction. It seems that atm l would prefer to die at home. Although l do have the hospice as an alternative
I quit understand, after surgery I was told they got all the cancer, no treatment needed 12 months later scan showed it was back and gone walk about to various places incurable but treatable. I was so angry and frightened, but I'm stable, I suppose one of the lucky one's. I really feel for you and uour family. Be kind to yourself. Sending big hugs and good vibes xx
I’m so sorry you are going through this. Write it all down here I think it might help a little to offload here although I have no personal experience my sister in law went through something similar. Kept going to doctors with groin pain. They kept fobbing her off saying it was from overdoing it at the gym. Eventually it was investigated. She had bone cancer and by then it had spread to her lungs and liver . She had 6 months from diagnosis. We were all so angry for her, not that an earlier diagnosis would have helped in her situation really but at least we would have known that her concerns had been taken seriously.
I’m sending hugs to you and holding your hand as you face these next few months.
So sorry to read your message, you have been through so much and yet you have found the strength to do what you need to do, I really hope you have the best birthday in November and have the best celebration balloons cake and all the trimmings above all make it a happy fun filled celebration.
Please continue to post here if you can, we are here to support you all you need.
Sending you and your family hugs and prayers
