Dear Sharon,

I am so sorry to hear that Phil has passed away.  You have my deepest sympathy.    In time your sadness and sorrow will slowly ease and you will be able to take comfort in all the wonderful memories you have.    Take some comfort in knowing that he is now at peace.  Keep his memory alive in your heart and those memories.   I am glad you have decided to stay with us.  I find that helping others helps me to heal and I am sure you will too.    I would also like to thank you and your son-in-law in advance for your thoughtfulness concerning the memorial run in his honor and how your donation will benefit the foundation.  Know that my thoughts are with you at this sad & trying time.  Take care.

Hugs,
Darla

Dear Rangani,

You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear mum.    I know how hard it is to deal  with when it happens so quickly, but try to take some comfort in the fact that she did not have to suffer for a very long time and died peacefully.   Thinking of you.

Love & Hugs,
Darla

Dear Rebecca,

I am so sorry for your loss.  You have my deepest sympathy.  Having gone through a very similar situation with my husband, I feel your pain.  It never truly goes away, but does get better in time. Keep your mum with you forever in your heart and memories.  Take care dear "Daisy".

Dear Rebecca,

I agree with you that you have exceeded her expectations and have done everything you can for your mum.  Yes, you will have all these memories of the tender moments you share and knowing that you have done all you could do and then some in a most difficult and trying situation.  Dealing with someone with CC has got to be the hardest thing any of us have had to do and know that you are doing a stellar job for and with your mum.   We are all right there with you in spirit, by your side to give you the strength to persevere.   Keep us updated when you can.  We all know & understand what you are going through and truly do care.

Hugs,
Darla

Nicola,

I'm glad that you and Tiah have connected, both living in  Adelaide.   I too hope your dad can be kept pain free.    He is dealing with so many health issues at this point that keeping his pain under control is important.   Interesting that your dad has many issues, but does not suffer from dementia.  Mine is physically relatively healthy but does have memory  issues.  He is almost 90 and currently in a memory care unit.  I must commend you and all those who work  in and for those in need of this kind of care.  You are all angels in my book.   

Take care and update us on how your dad is doing when you can.

Hi Nicola,

Welcome to our group.  I am glad you found us, but sorry you had to.   On the positive side, it is good that your dad is not in pain and hopefully that will be controlled with his palliative care.   It's hard to predicted when & how things will progress.  The palliative team should be able to give you some help with that.  We also have a member who has a list of things to watch for and I'm hoping she will  be in contact with you soon and can send that on to you or you could contact her by searching the user list for Lainy and send her a message asking for it. 

Hang in there and know that we are all here to help and support you in any way that we can.   

Hugs,
Darla

Beatriz,

Glad to hear things have improved and dad is in a better frame of mind.  Can't answer you question regarding lowering the bilirubin, but hopefully others who have had to deal with this will be along soon to make some suggestions.  Definitely keep us posted. We care.

Rachael,

Thanks for joining us and for your positive post.  So happy to hear of your husbands success with his treatment.   It gives hope to others here.

Just an interesting coincidence.  My nephew and his family just completed their move from Silver Spring. MD to Austin.  Arrived there a few hours ago.   He was offered a job as a professor at UT Austin.  I'm sure he and his family will be very happy there.

Hoping to hear more positive news from you in the future. 

Take care.  My best wishes to you and your husband.
