Lighting a candle

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

I have come home and lit one for my lovely Danish friend who has lived with breast cancer for 25 years and is now suffering a relapse and further invasions. She is so amazingly positive but this is now tending towards total denial and we are all very concerned. I just hope that at least we can get her through Christmas in a way she would appreciate and face whatever comes next with her determination :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: Margerethe

More news on baby George. He will be in hospital until Christmas at least. He can't feed normally from what O can gather the food is going into his lungs so he is back in Intensive care with tubes again bless him. :hug: :hug: Mum called at home to collect some more things, as you can imagine she looks shocking. So poor little soul needs yet another operation. At least his spine is going o be OK now. :hug: :hug:

Ratatouille, if you need any Danish supplies such as a marzipan pig, I'm sure I can source them more easily in London than you can in Provence, we have German and Scandinavian suppliers

Sorry to hear about George icey. The new grandson of one of my walking group was born by emergency c-section on Wednesday and has similar but I suspect milder lung problems as the meconium from his GI tract had already got into his lungs

My thoughts and hopes are with them.

In my work this was something I came across quite a bit ... outcomes vary widely depending on the reason for the problem which can be several ... bless him and bless his parents and fingers very crossed.

Lighting a candle today for my dearest, loveliest, friend who, sadly, has been told her cancer is no longer treatable. Prognosis is no more than a month or two. Will be flying up to Scotland to say my goodbyes to her so probably won't be posting much for a bit. Thinking of her poor husband, son and family. :(

That's a tough one, Seatallan. I'm certain your friend will draw a great deal of comfort from having you there.

Such sad news Sea and Smitch, love to you both.

Sea, I hope your friend can draw comfort that her last days are being spent where she wanted to be, I’m so pleased that she got to make the move.

My mum isn’t having a good day, I think we are at the point for dialysis - she has had all the ‘plumbing’ completed in readiness for this eventuality. I want her to go to the renal unit today to see what they think, she is adamant about waiting for tomorrow.........actually maybe it’s me that isn’t having the good day, I’m so very anxious about her at the moment.

I know just how you feel and my love goes out to you and your dear dear friends. our friend seems to be hanging on though it is not at all certain. Today we have entertained a friend with advanced ms and who has also been given a very uncertain prognosis. I find it so hard to understand why it always seem to be the loviest people who are struck down like this.

Courage and peace to all who need it :hug: :hug:

So sorry to hear all this news :hug: :hug: :hug:
My friend with the galloping MND is marrying her partner of 14 years just before Christmas, I expect not a dry eye in the house. I think the plan was to buy a retirement home in Somerset then get married there, but no house move of course now.

I’ve just seen an advert on tv for a future programme about an experimental treatment for MS. Sorry I didn’t see when it’s on.
