Just a quick note as I'm heading to bed. Not long back from hospice talking Jenni back after she spent the afternoon here at her home. She had a wonderful time with Jamie and Jack but went into pain as we were about to head back. She has had a tough week with bad pain most evenings/nights and at some other random times apparently. She wanted me to stay with her until it passed and it took nearly three hours and they had to knock her out in the end. Please keep your thoughts, prayers and wishes for pain free time for Jenni coming as she really needs them now. When the pain comes it is just relentless for her.
Added to this is a new emotional pain for us both as it seems that Jack has convinced himself that Mum is going to get better. We will have to go through the "chat" again with him. A tough conversation that one but necessary, especially as time appears to be running out.
Will end it here, am just stuck for words at the moment. Life is just not fair sometimes.
