    The coughing, spluttering and being sick that I was worried about with my laddo lying flat has a diagnosis. The worst possible I am afraid. I am in a state of complete shock. I have been told to prepare for the worst in the next few weeks. Meanwhile all medication has been withdrawn so it is not such a trial to get down him. Just fluids now and he will stay at home - at laddo's insistence which has been respected by the medics after the traumas he went through last year in the various hospitals. Wall to wall carers, Macmillan nurses, night sitters etc so I will be well supported. But ...... I cannot begin to say how I am feeling except that I am just broken to pieces.

    Love from sammyb

    Oh Sammy love, I cannot imagine how you are feeling.

    I am glad at least that someone listened to you and your lovely man.

    Sending you a special TP hug. My prayers are with you both.

    Bless you everyone and thank you for your hugs and prayers. I will find the strength from somewhere I know but God alone knows what I'll be like at the end.

    I am staying up tonight to sit with him. He is fast asleep but I am still in a panic.

    Talk to you tomorrow.

    love sammyb

    Sammy, so sorry to hear the news. Make sure you take this time together and focus on quality time with your 'laddo', let others take the strain in other areas for you.

    Sending HUGS

    Thinking of you both.
