 You have my sympathies, not much consolation but at least we know we are not alone and someone else understands and shares your feelings. Thanks very much for what must have been a difficult write.

 

 

I can really empathize with you Bob and you are in my thoughts.

Was in the hospital today. Spoke to the Neurologist. He explained that there was a four centimetre tumour on the right front of Esthers brain. Surgery, followed by. chemo and radiation would be included, he cautioned that the surgery could lead to death on the table during this difficult procedure. More talk followed, the bottom line being at our age there was no guarantee of success with any treatment. Esther asked if she could go home, the surgeon said that was an option, with care and some medication about two months would be the length of survival.

We then spoke to another doctor who would admit Esther into Palliative care which would be conducted at home, there would be a nurse who would conduct daily visits, and other support persons. I was told privately that it was not unusual for persons in Esthers condition to slip away at any time.

I am just thankful that I will have her at home, sixty two and a half years creates a bond, when the time comes the two of us will meet up again and will rejoin with our daughter Deborah.

I cannot express the appreciation I have for the support you guys have given me, I apologise to anyone who finds this depressing but as I have said I am sort of isolated here, and nothing like a good Scots ear to cry into.

I'm very sorry for your troubles Bob.
