So glad to hear there good days mixed in there - it makes the bad days easier to bear. Those steroids are horrible for insomnia! My sister said she always knew when my BIL's steroids had been upped because he'd be out in the garage changing oil on something at 3:00 am!

Mary that must have been a very special moment for you when hubby was able to join you and Diana downstairs. Hopefully there will be more good days ahead and he will continue to feel the love and support from your family and all of us. My prayers go out to you and your family.
Love & Hugs,

Hello dear Boomers, hope you are all doing well and staying safe. Hubby and I have both had our first Covid shots, he will have his second one on the 23rd this month and hopefully I will have mine two weeks after him.

It's been a long rocky road for both of us. I've been lurking on the forum but couldn't bring myself to post anything. Sorry to say I haven't been coping very well mentally and had to ask for help. Hubby was showing signs of recovery but hit a downward spiral. He's now down to 9stone 7lbs and is totally unable to walk, even with his walking frame. He tries his best to use the excerciser but he's not getting very far with it. He's so weak I have to help him dress before he can get out of bed. He spends a lot of time sleeping in his chair when he does get up.

He has finished with all of his treatments now, which is something. He was supposed to go into hospital for a final treatment with Methotrexate which would flush out hidden cancer cells in his brain and spinal cord. His doctor explained the treatment would be brutal and has decided hubby isn't well enough or strong enough to go through with it so it won't be happening.

The kids are still caring for us but for how much longer I don't know. With hubby being immobile, things are a tad harder for them. Social Services can't give us the care package we need. The other night, hubby said he thought he would be better off in a care home which totally broke me. I would never consider that option, and neither would the family.

There's not much else to say except thank you guys for your love, prayers and support during what has been a trying time.

Much love to you all

Mary hearts

This breaks my heart. One bright thing is that you recognized YOU needed help in order to cope. I know your family is being wonderful, but so much still falls on you. Taking care of YOU is just as important as taking care of your hubby. I continue to think of you and your family every day.

It is despicable what social services is doing to you. If you have the strength Mary do not give up, hound them until you at least get some help. Thoughts & prayers going out to you.

I'm really sorry to read this MsMercury, and then for you to have problems with social services too. Hopefully they will come around! Good that you got yourself some help. Maybe the kids can benefit from that also if need be. hug

Hello Boomers, hope you are all doing well and staying safe. We had to reschedule hubby's appointment for his Covid jab as he wasn't up to it on the day. I will get my second jab on Wednesday.

Dear Connie, Ana, Draclvr, Mad, Judith, Marian, oldbroad, Hagatha and soot; thank you so very much for your continuing love and support, it means so much.

Some good news guys. It's been over a week since hubby's treatment finished and he's showing little signs that he may be turning the corner. His colour is much better, he was very jaundiced looking but now looks almost normal plus his appetite is improving. He's not sleeping as much during the day which is good and is taking more interest in what's going on. As I witness these small improvements my heart is happy.

The dietition from the hospital was in touch and sent out a caseload of build-up drinks, some milk-based and some juice-based which hubby is tolerating very well. He looks as though he has put on a little weight but we won't how much, if any, until he sees his consultant on the 26th May. We do have scales at home but he is unable to stand to use them.

He is still very weak and unable to stand and still unable to walk. He's been too weak and exhausted to use his little excerciser but hopefully will be able to return to that soon. We have not heard any more from the physio but hope things will restart again in the not-too-distant future. I feel that he needs really intensive physio to get his legs moving. The thought of not being able to walk again or drive his car is very stressful for him. My own physio has been on hold since February of last year so that now, over two years since my surgeries, I am no further forward to getting prosthetics.

There's not much else to say except thank you guys again for your love, prayers and support.

Much love to all,

Mary hearts

Tiny little steps start adding up to big steps! Hopefully, you will start seeing some big steps adding up too!

Mary, I am so sorry they halted your therapies needed for you to get your prosthetics. They were certainly come in handy with everything going on. Praying you can get your self going forward again too.
So happy to hear your hubby is doing better. That is wonderful news, indeed!

Hugs and prayers....
