It will be for the last time as there is no further treatment possible other than pain relief. She wants to be at home with all of us so we will do everything we can to make whatever time she has left comfortable and stress free. We will have support from Macmillan and district nurses and should there come a time when we are no longer able to cope, DD has agreed to go into a hospice.

Family support has been wonderful but I have to admit I'm a little scared and very, very sad.

Oh, merlot. You must be full of all sorts of emotions. Dont be scared, you will do your daughter proud!

You must however be so, so sad.

Oh Merlot I feel your pain. How very sad for you all. I realise you are scared so when I am scared I take it a day at a time or even an hour at a time. Macmillan are wonderful - I hope they can give you adequate support. I am thinking of you all flowers

Oh, Merlotgran I am so sorry for your situation. sad I might understand a little bit of what you're going through - my darling sibling died on Wednesday, also after an untreatable cancer. At least they had the chance to see their children grow up and enjoy their grandchildren.

How much harder it must be for you to witness your daughter enduring this. My heart goes out to you. flowers

I hope you are able to spend lots of time just “being” with your daughter and are able to say all things that you both need to.
