I haven't posted on here in absolutely ages but I pop by to see how everyone is getting on now and again. My beautiful Mum is now just over two years down the road in her battle with ICC. I thought I'd just check-in to let you know where we're up to with our journey.
We have been through chemo, alternative medicines, several surgeons debating whether Mum could have an op (she couldn't in the end). We've had ups and downs, laughs, tears, and every symptom, emotion and medication under the sun.
It seems now that we're sadly reaching the end of the road. Mum is sleeping a lot and is very confused. She has also had terrible ascites, which is pretty uncomfortable for her. The doc gave her a few days to live about two weeks ago but she came round a bit and she is still here.
It's been a sad journey but we have learned so much along the way. Mum has kept her sense of humour all along and there have still been good times in such difficult circumstances. I am so proud of her. The hospice staff have been fantastic too - I recommend hospice to anyone, they've helped us so much.
The body may die but love survives. Much love to all of you on this board. You have unknowingly helped to keep our little family sane throughout this time. We will be forever grateful for that.
