Carol,
Such a lot of suffering! So very sorry to hear your loved ones in this place.
Sometimes the news itself can be demoralizing and overwhelming. Generally no one knows how to help, but they want to - feeling like you can do something in the face of powerlessness is nice.
Caregivers need as much or more support than patients sometimes. Providing company, a meal, respite, making phone calls or driving to appointments are all ways you can help if you are nearby. Patients need to understand what is happening to them, and they need to be able to talk about their fears, hopes and dreams; to grieve the changes in lifestyle they anticipate; to say important things, and listen to others say important things. And if you are a believer, perhaps the most important things you can do are spiritual care and prayer.

The thing cancer often provides that a sudden and debilitating health change does not provide is time to do important things, including fighting the battle, which more people are winning! Carol, my heart and my prayers go out to your family.

Sorry Linda - the Baby Shower and making cards that are needed are taking up all my spare time.

Maybe you could try this again after the summer?
