I am so grateful to you for doing this, knowing it's heartbreaking for you. I can't emphasize how valuable it is to post about end-of-life as it really is. That is what Helen did when Alan was dying and it helped to prepare me for my own experiences with my parents' deaths. I am certain that she would be posting all this herself if she were able.I`m posting so much about Helen, firstly because she was such a well thought of member of TP who gave such sound support to so many and everyone`s feedback and concern has encouraged me to post, and secondly because her end of life care has developed into something which is out of most people`s experiences....
Poor Helen, it is indeed a horrific saga. Unbearably difficult for all of you and so cruel for Helen.With hindsight I should have posted on the Thread Helen started about her illness but I had absolutely no idea it would become this horrific saga and now it is too late to change.
Exactly, Jan. xxxI have followed Helen's story daily, even though I haven't posted. Words fail me and sorrow takes over, that Helen, Martin and Mandy are having such a horrendous time. Poor Helen really doesn't deserve what she's going through.
I'm glad to hear that you are holding up Sylvia and I hope you have a lovely break next week. J xx
