Sorry to be back so soon and with sad news,

My father, as some of you know, has been very sick recently. His condition hasn't improved and his doctors really don't think he has long to live.

I would like to ask you all if you could say a little prayer for him and hopefully make his passing, when it comes, easier and also pray for my Mum who is at her wits end and like us all suffers from lupus.

hugs to all,

Hello Katherine

I am thinking about you and yours and will certainly pray for you all before I go to sleep tonight.

Take good care.

With my love and best wishes. :hug: :hug: :hug:
Just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for your family. I am truly sorry for what you all are going through.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and your dad of course..Karly:hug::love2:
Hello Everybody,

I just wanted to give you all an update following your kind thoughts and prayers.

Dad has remained stable. The pneumonia was brought quickly under control this time (even if it is the 5th or 6th time these last 6 months). He still can't really breathe due to very advanced COPD and has to remain on high levels of oxygen. One of the biggest problems was severe panic attakcs which they have FINALLY seemed to have brought under control.

The outlook hasn't really changed but at least he is more comfortable for the time being and Mum ca rest a little.

thanks again all,
Hi Katharine,

Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you. This must be very difficult for you - especially his lingering suffering, with no real hope in the long term, but also the endurance of getting through each new day.

I hope you are able to get some rest too.

Hugs Cath


My thoughts are still with you and your family!

Take good care off yourself!


Thank you Cath and Lesley,

As you were saying Cath it is the lack of optimism and the lingering which are so hard. Far more so for Mum than me. Being so far away I am "protected" from the stress of seeing that on a daily basis.
