Lyn no one in their right mind could mention neglect in the care you give your dear Mum.

Matty my love good news that it hasn't spread into lymph glands and the dreaded chemo isn't needed. Your choice Matty sadly not long to decide. Body image is extremely personal but if either options can guarantee the same cancer free result then go with what you feel is best for you. Surgery as you know won't be easy but if we have you cancer free that is a great result xx

Whatever you decide don't feel you need tell us just say when we need to send you positive vibes x

Dreich you are messing with my head I'm only a simple Yorkshire lass, who now needs to sort food (guess what) ready for the dancing 

Well done on fund raising Panda 

Lesley I'm out first thing for industrial boxes of cling film, maybe you have invented the answer to insulating GH's..get it patented pronto  I'm not kidding

Hi Chicky glad you had a successful mission 

Fairy thanks for the translation  Re: GH it's the collared Doves that shade it

Panda hope the guides thingy went well and they weren't sneaking off tasting chilli choc vodka.

I've checked the news and no one has burst the bank at Monte Carlo so I guess Archie will be coming home  

Where is Pdoc ? Hope he's not gone tidying his shed again

Hi Woody enjoy the din  CT scanners are shared by hospitals here meaning patients have to travel  

Go on Fairy what is clatty ? 

Sunshine here today but chilly, now blinking cold and curtains closed. 

Mum's telephone repaired, engineer came early in the time slot Not sure if I'm pleased it's now working without a crackle, might mean long chats  

My blackbirds are back in numbers food on the ground being scoffed rapidly as are the windfall chopped apples. If they dare mess on my GH they are in big trouble

Gemma not selfish at all !!! To look after your OH you needed to be able to sleep.

Lyn we can feel the grief in your post and your efforts to sound pragmatic are brave of you. Like others if I could help you I would. Think Fidget is probably thinking the same things as you. You cannot do better than your best. The time does come when self preservation needs to kick in x

To all who are in awful situations I send my best wishes.  We can't help in practical ways but can give our love and emotional support.

Lyn you can't keep doing what you are currently doing.

Some jobs will have to be left.

This is meant with kindness, I suggest if mum wants to stay in bed you let her I'm sure she understands the consequences and why you want her to be mobile, but it is her choice. You can't keep doing all the physical things and the emotional strain you are under is huge. I understand your love for your parents is driving you but you will be very ill if you continue to battle alone.
