My son may be dying

Just that.

He has cancer, they have not been able to control it.

They have given him one last chemotherapy to see if it can turn a corner but his body may not be able to tolerate it and it may not work.

We have been told to prepare ourselves for him to deteriorate suddenly.

My husband can't be with us because my son also has Coronavirus so we are in isolation and he is with our other son.

It's just so awful. All staff are in PPE. Up until yesterday they just had paper masks.

We can't get clean clothes as they say they are not allowed to wash them for us and noone else is allowed in.

No one can comfort me because they have to keep their distance.

I'm not even allowed to leave the room to make myself a cup of tea.

I am so sorry to hear that- what a terrible thing to happen. I will pray for you from the other side of the world. Thanks

That sounds awful. How old is DS? The whole thing is devastating first the cancer and now coronavirus. Stay strong Thanks

Thinking of you.

Hippywannabe · 04/04/2020 07:41

I am sorry x

Squarepegina · 04/04/2020 07:48

I am so sorry to read this. The worst thing to face as a parent and without the support you need because of these times. Hold on to whatever you can including the support of virtual strangers on here.

Sending you and your strength and love and hope.

I’ll be thinking of you both today

coachman · 04/04/2020 07:51

I'm so glad you are able to be with him. Thinking of you; we are all here for you.

RaraRachael · 04/04/2020 07:51

What an awful situation to be in,for all of you. My thoughts are with you x

MayMiracle · 04/04/2020 07:59

This must be unbearable for all of you, I'm so sorry. But, you're there beside your son offering him comfort and support. Your other DS is being cared for by his father. You're doing you're absolute best in the most appalling, hideous circumstances - that's all you can do. Thinking of you and sending love Thanks

Gwynfluff · 04/04/2020 08:02
