Hi Everyone, First of all, a big thankyou to all of you that replied to my post last week regarding my mum in law who was diagnosed with bowel and liver cancer on top of being diagnosed with Alzheimers 3 years ago. She has now been in hospital nearly 3 weeks and at he beginning of last week was very distressed and crying all the time for her own mum, her doctor tried her on a different drug and it seems to have worked! She is actually smiling for the first time in months and even recognised us briefly. Sadly, the prognosis is not good though as her doctor can`t say for certain just how long it will be before the cancer takes her. We have, as a family, agreed that she should not endure the distress of investigative surgery - biopsy and cameras put where they are not wanted etc. as we feel this would be far too traumatic for her to bear. The ONLY thing we can thank the Alzheimers for is that she doesn`t know that she has the cancer. Life seems so very unfair sometimes as, she survived cancer of the womb just over 20 years ago, and, whilst she was in hospital then, her husband had a massive heart attack and died. It is truly sad to see her now going through all of this. It breaks my heart as she is such a lovely lady. Speaking of my heart breaking, and I know that this isn`t the right place for this, but my unborn grandson died a few days ago at just 27 weeks of pregnancy. I don`t know when I will be able to stop crying, it really makes you wonder just how much you can take. Thanks for taking the time to read this, Karen.
