I'm still deciding whether I should watch or not. In case it's gonna break me into many little pieces.

I'm having a good run on not full-on crying this past week.

Hi there US.

As is my wont, I met up with a few friends for a drink on my way home last night. I made a small print out and raised a glass in memory of Heather.

Her influence and spirit reached even to the far side of the world.

i have a weird bastardisation of accents - i grew up in Merseyside, trained in Hampshire, taught in Oxfordshire and now back in Merseyside but in st helens, which is another accent again...fallible never really escaped her bristolian burr after living round there in her teens...

and, thanks, took some writing and that's the first time i got through meg's bit without breaking...;)

terribly, terribly quick in the end but i spoke to the hospital on Friday and things have become a little clearer

basically, she's been dying slowly since jan/feb when the liver functions started pissing about - only her relative youth and her determination kept her going...somebody older or weaker would have gone 6 months ago...essentially, the liver and remaining kidney failed which was accentuated by the 4 litre drain she had - these caused the jaundice and high potassium levels...to everyone, including the doctors, it was a matter of 24-48 hours, but it had been 'on hold' for months...

it was metasteses from her primary kidney tumour, discovered 3 and a half years ago - that was a massive tumour that had been growing for anything up to 10 years. it was removed, but 12 months later, they found it had spread to the liver...once it's moved elsewhere, it's incurable at present as not affected by usual chemo or radio procedures, so it was always about trying to reduce the burden or keep it at bay...unfortunately, she had 3 sizeable tumours on the liver then lots of dots and spots, so they wouldn't consider removal of part of the liver or cryo ablation

Haven't been particularly active here lately, so I've only just found this.

BUGGER.

Dear 2020 ... how about leaving the good people to live for once?

Fallible.

my god. my god. I don't know what to say.

I haven't been posting much and reading even less. I can't believe I'm just now seeing this. I'm just sick.

Tony, my heart is breaking for you and your daughter. I'm so sorry.

thanks, that's much appreciated - a great shock to us here, we knew time was more limited as her thread, iirc, explains...but not limited to weeks...
