Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Yes, I know. And if it weren't already enough, my annual cancer screening was due and it looks like there's something wrong - hopefully it's just an ovarian cyst, but the doctor at the hospital today was very careful to avoid any clear information. He said he wanted to do a CT first before he can ma...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Hello again! I'm back at work. Three weeks of holiday did me good. Actually, I'm doing OK. We're cleaning up the house. Mom was a real hoarder. We've already given away lots of things, and it looks like we've barely scratched the surface :slowblush: Most of her clothing goes into second-hand using. ...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

So far, I'm doing OK. I did a lot of gardening last week and still there's so much to do at the house. But I also try to get some leisure time for myself. Gardening or housework in the morning, swimming and reading in the afternoons. Oh, and cuddling of course. The Mouse Hunter extraordinaire brings...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Three week of holiday ahead of me. And so much to do. Mom was a hoarder, as much as I tried to prevent it. I have a lot of clean-up to do. My sister helps where she can. Besides, we have agreed that for the moment I'll stay in the house. Whether I pay rent or I put some money aside to maintain the h...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I have sad news. Mom passed away last night. In the end, it was too much for her body to cope with. We think she lost her will to fight because of the ongoing infections (one after another). We were allowed to stay with her until the end. This way, we could say good bye to her. Until she fell asleep...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Sorry for being so absent. Mom is back at the hospital. She was admitted again after being a few days at home. She hasn't been drinking enough and that caused a kidney infection (again). The doctor said there have been 3 overlapping infections, and asked who released her from hospital at all. We tol...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Mom is back home again. It's ben up and down for the past couple of weeks, and not much sleep for me since she's returned home. 7 radiations left, so far she has lost about 14 kg, which is ok and not yet serious, but I hope it won't be much more, because she's losing a lot of weight in a short time....

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Mom's back at the hospital. My sister is with her. I suppose the side effects are a good sign in general, but seeing her suffer and not being able to help is so damn hard.

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Mom had to be hospitalized last week, due to a virus infection, along with diarrhoe. :( She's doing better again and was allowed home on Saturday afternoon. We have ordered a hospital bed - we're going to put it into the living room - so she doesn't have to climb the inner stairs to her bedroom anym...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

:lol: :lol: That's exactly it! As for you going after cows with butterfly nets: I tried to stay off meat myself and ended up with dreams of being chased by ham sandwiches... Mom's resting a lot these days. Whatever helps her. Timmy is guarding her, of course. He's dividing his time between her and m...
