Thank you so much Teetee, very kind x
Hello Teetee , .I said goodbye to my darling man, .he never really regained consciousness again , he had leptomeningeal metastise
And that was the reason for the memory loss ,. I am utterly devastated, .He was doing so well the consultant said, they hadn't given him a brain scan since this all started and if they had they might have found it. I am bereft and so angry that they were giving him a good
Diagnosis and a week later he is on life support and then he has left me, how can this be!!!!!!
Dear PAC, I hope you and Teetee, don’t mind me expressing how sorry I am to read of your loss, it was such a short time ago that you seemed to have joined the group here. I can’t answer the how can this be question, and I think perhaps you did not expect an answer to that question, but I was wondering if you might now also find the group for bereaved partners and spouses of some support to you. I have put the link in for you to find it quicker. This must be such a whirl for you.
Macmillan also have an ask an expert section that might help support you.
I hope you don’t mind me putting these links in for you but I thought you might not yet be used to finding your way around the community and they might help.
again I am so sorry.

Thank you so much Latchbrook, i am utterly devastated, .he was doing so well and the tumors were dimminshing,. This leptomeningeal
Is very rare apparently but I don't understand why they didn't find it ,. The ICU were amazing such loving and dedicaced care from them all, .a different story when they moved him to another ward because they needed the bed, .the palliative care nurse came to see me
And assured us he would be looked after and so would we, .we never saw them again !!! He went from loving calm professional care
And 24hrs later he died an awful death with us begging them to give him something, . I am devastated and very angry,.
Sorry my grief is overcoming my sanity
I can totally understand how devastated and angry you must be when you feel that you and your husband were let down by the care he received. Feeling angry is a totally normal part of the grieving process and I'm hoping that you have some close friends or relatives you can sit down with and talk it through with.
If you don't feel comfortable telling people close to you how you feel then please consider calling the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000. It's free to call and available every day between 8am and 8pm.
