Hi

I've received a message from Jen this evening, saying that sadly the outlook for her younger brother, Timmy, isn't the best.

She's going to see him in hospital and wanted me to let you know that she won't be on the Forum.

I'm sure we're all thinking about her and her family at this very sad time.

Thank you all so much for your very kind messages which I will pass on to Jen tomorrow.

I'm sure it will be of comfort to her to know that many caring people on KH are keeping her and her family in mind.

Thank you all so much.

Timmy passed away on Monday morning.

We saw and spent some time with him over the weekend. He was aware (he could open his eyes and respond slightly with slight nods and shrugs) but he was in a bad way really. Basically it was a rare, bad tumour in a bad position. There probably wasn't anything the doctors could have done even if they had discovered it earlier. He was on a ventilator and couldn't breathe on his own so my mum and stepdad made the decision to switch the machine off rather than prolong things.

His death was quick, painless and peaceful which I am grateful for. In fact everything has been quite quick rally, it's only been a few weeks. I think all of the decisions were the right ones though. I would have hated it all to be dragged out.

We're all muddling through. I've been distracting myself with learning to crochet. Things like that help when it gets too much.

Thank you everyone for all your thoughts, prayers and wishes. I have found it a comfort.

I am so sorry for your loss. Having lost several family members in somewhat similar circumstances (making painful decisions for their benefit after sudden onset of life-threatening conditions), I can relate and I am here to tell you that good memories will ease your pain and create a lasting bond for you and your family to your brother. If I can be of any help outside of the prayers I will continue to offer for your family, please let me know.

I think learning to crochet is a fabulous thing...maybe you can coax me into staying with it...I haven't progressed very far because it seems bizarre to hold one hook instead of two needles - I think my hands rebel!

Sincere :hug: s to you...

Thank you :hug:

If you haven't got it I recommend 'The Happy Hooker' crochet guide. I wasn't getting past a chain before my hubby bought me that book a week or so ago. I'm now going through the learning chapters and progressing nicely. I think it's doing me good to have something constructive to focus on.

The funeral is going to be next Tuesday. I'm not looking forward to it at all but my mum is doing her best to make it short and not too gloomy.

Thanks for the recommendation...I'll have to get that book. I figure that it took me on and off about a year to master knitting so why should crochet be any different?! :teehee:

Wishing you happy moments in the midst of it all and sending lots of love to you... :muah:
