Oh, Sylvia. xxxxx
Oh my goodness, I do hope that the doctor didn't actually say that. How could anyone face being told that? Poor Helen. Sending you all my love.
So difficult for you, Sylvia, the not knowing. Could Martin or Mandy put you in the picture?
I know it wouldn't change the situation greatly, but you would at least know.
It just seems so impossible to take in Sylvia. This is Helen and this is so real and so terribly sad. x
You've written my thoughts too
Oh Sylvia, we are thinking of you and Helen's family.
Thinking special thoughts of Helen and hope she is pain free and comfortable.
More than anything just now I wish Helen peace. She has bravely struggled against this awful condition all of this time.. if she would only stop struggling now and allow the inevitable to happen. But it's not in Helen's nature.
Sylvia, you and Helen have had such a close friendship for so long I can't begin to imagine how this is affecting you.
If virtual hugs are still available, please accept one.
I am so very sorry, Sylvia. Words cannot convey how I feel other than understanding how distressing this is for all of you. especially Helen.
Sylvia, this is yet another sad, sad chapter in this very sad tale. I'm so sorry my friend. Love to you and Helen ,Martin, Mandy and Linda.x.x.x
Thanks, Sylvia, I appreciate how difficult this is for you.
I'm so sorry to hear this Sylvia.
Did the GP say that to Helen? It wasn't very professional if he did.
You are such a good friend to Helen. You both are so in tune to each others needs. This would be so hard for you.
Sending hugs and strength for the coming days.
I really don't know if the GP actually said this Kim or if Helen thought it was what she heard.
He is a lovely GP. He kneels on the floor so he is at Helens level, holds her hand and behaves as if he has all the time in the world. Helen has absolute trust in him.
I really don't want to mither Mandy or Martin , we'll all know soon enough.
Sylvia this is so sad. I wish Helen peace and strength for you and her family.
Thank you for keeping ys updated xxx
Oh Sylvia this is so profoundly sad and hard for you. I have no words… only feelngs for each of you and Helen.
I echo Saffie’s words
It’s hard reading it but you are living it.
I ache for each of you.
My love and prayers.
I hope you managed some sleep Sylvia. My phone is playing up so have to check in when I can get on my laptop.
Thinking of you
Thinking of you and Helens family at this really heartbreaking time
I`m really OK thanks everyone.
I think I`m in some sort of self protection mode , even denial of sorts, because I`m so far away distance wise and know there is nothing I can do. Even if I was there there`d be nothing I could do.
I do know I can give Helen comfort but she has a loving daughter and partner with her and maybe the time was made for me to step back and allow the family their time with her, uninterrupted.
Anyway it is as it is and I`m fine with it.
I am sleeping well except for occasional bouts of wakefulness. I have a reaction to an insect bite and was up in the night to take an anti histamine. The night before I was awake from 3am. but generally I`m sleeping well.
Enough about me.
Good to hear Sylvia
Are you packed for your holiday yet? What is the weather like where you will be going? Do you need woolies or summer wear?
A vest. That's what you need for your holiday
If it's hot - just a vest
If it's cold - a vest under top, jumper, cardigan
Looking forward to photos xx
