    I’m so sorry to hear about Colin’s fever. My prayers are with you, Colin and your daughter. I thank you for saying a prayer for my dad also.



    Fran, I can’t imagine how your heart is breaking. Prayers are being said for you and your family.



    Of course you can have my prayers Fran.
    I am so sorry things are not going well and I cannot begin to understand how difficult it has to be for you and your family. Please remember to take time for yourself and to talk about what is going on with someone you trust. Your feelings and needs are also important.



    Fran…my prayers are with you. Karen


    Dear Fran,
    So sorry to hear your anguish – I hope things improve for Colin and/or he has a peaceful passing. I don’t want to give false hope, but severe fevers don’t seem to me to signal the end – it could be an infection like cholangitis, and they can give him antibiotics. I know I don’t know everything that’s going on, and I”m certainly not a doctor, so please bear with me if I’m totally wrong. I just would love to see you have your big family Christmas with your loved ones, and Colin aware and comfortable enough to enjoy it.
    Much love and hugs,


    my dear husband Colin is fading away before my eyes, I have called the ambulance once this week as he was delirious with a high fever, they were marvellous and stayed until we had things under control.
    Last night his fever spiked again and once again he was delirous, panodol didn’t touch the fever this time and my daughter and I had to get him into a luke warm bath until his temp dropped.
    His Doctor has told me this morning that he doesn’t think he will make Christmas, so please everyone out there please pray that these temps will stop spiking and we can have one last family Christmas together, he has been the love of my life for 39 years and I am so scared to think of life with out him but I know it is almost time to let him go, Fran Australia
