    It sounds beautiful Lainy. And think of all of us who would like to come, but cant. You both made a difference in all of our lives.

    I have the same problems and have special compression socks that really do help. I would mention this to the doctor since this was the first sign for me that I was having those types of problems and before I knew it I had ascites. It all cleared up with medicine, but it is something to keep your eye on.

    Ironbark,
    I am sorry for the passing of your father, but you have already learned he will always be with you.

    We like to call those slow ones “lazy” tumors. Mine were lazy until I tried radiation which the tumprs ate like baseball players on steroids.

    You never know how your tumor will respond to things, so you cant blame yourself. CC is sneaky and you can only try.

    That is wonderful Lainy. I think I will follow Hans around the house leaving the kitty litter scoop places so he will remember to take care of the little ones.

    Lainy,
    I dont know what to say. It all just seems wrong when you are talking about a family and a love like yours and Teddy’s.

    Know that you are in my heart and prayers and if I could reach you I would give you the biggest hug.

    Lainy,
    I am so sorry they are not responding to Ts needs. I could really have a big bout of potty mouth right now. My hospice team just left me about 20 1G (yeah the good stuff) tylonal. I could sneak it to you…it is in suppository form so you could give T a good pinch while you are at it. I can always ask for more…the drugs they have me on make me forget where my feet are.

    Hopefully things got straightened out today. Hugs, prayers and warm thoughts,

    Hi Marj,
    Welcome to the site.I would strongly suggest your mother get into the hospital if she has been vomiting for several days. Her electrolytes are most likely all off and that can be a real problem. It can affect steadiness on feet, heart rythms and confusion.

    Welcome to the site.We are a close group and do our best to offer support and information. This disease does not follow one path and until we know which path it wants to take, it is difficult to answer questions. Generally, you will notice your dad getting more and more tired.

    He is going to need help as this progresses. What kind of help is hard to say. Are they going to try to do an external drain instead of a stent?

    Let us know what is happening and we will do our best to advice and support.

    Everyone heals in their own time. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Be kind to yourself. I think my mother is crazy half the time too which only leads to giggles and misadventures. Perhaps that is what you need.

    My husband went down to 25% for a month and found that too stressful. He felt he could not focus and was not doing a good job. He is now not working at all. We are lucky in that Sweden has very generous social care packages. We are not sure where I am in this process, but we know we want to spend some time together when it is still quality time.
