Some followers keep asking, how is Peter. I am afraid to say, that Peter is very disabled now in that most days he can hardly move at all. Today, he is about to undergo some bone scans. It is very difficult for Peter to move in a way that it does not hurt too much. The painkilling tablets that he has been given so far, do not seem to help much at all. Peter has a lot of kidney trouble. A lot of water stays in the body and causes much swelling, especially in the feet and legs.

Auntie, Sister. Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Mother and Wife of German Descent I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com View all posts by auntyuta

Aunty Uta. Oh dear! I hope that doesn’t mean what I think it means.
Oh, Devon, we’ve known for some time that there is no cure for Peter’s sicknesses, starting with Bladder cancer and Heart failure. The only thing that can be done, is make him as comfortable as possible.
My thoughts and sympathies for you both..
I feel as though you are both my friends, and this is very sad news. I’m sure he is comforted by being surrounded with people he loves and who love him, and I send my very best wishes to you both in this difficult time.
Thank you so much, dear Cat. You are such a good friend! 🙂
Aw, this makes me very sad to hear. 😦
I hope Peter can be helped to be comfortable and as pain free as possible.
Let him know that we care about him. We will keep him in our thoughts, our hearts, and our best wishes.
I hope you both can enjoy much more beautiful time together…with love, laughs, good meals, family, and friends.
Gentle-(((HUGS))) and ❤
Many, many thanks, Carolyn, for your expression of feelings and thoughts. 🙂
Much more beautiful time together, yes, this is what we hope for too. Every beautiful minute counts!
Thank you for your gentle HUGS. We feel like hugging you too! 🙂
I googled nuclear scans for cancer and it says: “Nuclear medicine scans can help doctors find tumors and see how much the cancer has spread in the body (called the cancer’s stage). . . .”
Well, Peter’s scans from this morning did indeed show that his cancer has spread to the bones. 😦
I’m so sorry to hear this new news, Uta.
My Dad had prostrate cancer and then years later he had bone cancer.
You and Peter have my thoughts and my heart.
You are loved, thought about, cared about.
Thank you, dear Carolyn, thank you for all your caring! 🙂
Lots of HUGS from Uta and Peter 🙂
I need to share my sympathy and concern also, Aunty, especially on hearing Peter isn’t getting the pain relief he needs.
It’s complicated, Stuart. His oncologist told Peter yesterday, that if it gets too bad he should call the ambulance. In hospital they could give Peter stronger pain relief, probably injections. At the moment Peter is heavily constipated. Some palliative care sisters are going to see to this today. Thanks for your sympathy and concern, dear Stuart. I think Peter likes to stay at home for as long as possible.
Just checking in on Peter and you, Uta.
I hope it is a good day with smiles, laughter, and love.
How is everything going?
Thanks for asking, Carolyn. Last week, on Wednesday, Peter was admitted to Wollongong Hospital. He is still there. They have not worked out yet, how he can be made comfortable at home. In hospital he is most of the time comfortable enough. But he does get quite a lot of painkilling medication.
Thank you for the update.
I think of you two every day and I wish you well.
Are you able to go and be with him?
If so, give him a gentle hug for me.
❤ and (((HUGS)))
Yes, Carolyn, I can see him, and luckily I am allowed to hug him. Visiting hours are from 11 to 1pm and from 5 to 7pm. For each visiting session only o n e person is allowed in. This is a bummer, for whoever takes me to the hospital is not allowed in and has to wait till I come out again to take me back home.
I want to give you Hugs too!
Lots of Love, Uta 🙂
Oh, I’m so glad you can spend time with him AND hug him! That makes me feel better!
❤ and More(((HUGS)))
Oh Aunty Una so sorry to this , good he is home with you. . Wait I have just seen he has been admitted to Hospital . Hugs are precious . Thinking of you warm hugs to you, take care.
Thank you so much, dear Sheila. Warm hugs to you too. Peter was in hospital, but he is home now and gets a lot of care by family and also some outside help. He is being made as comfortable as possible. We are very grateful that he can be cared for at home now. 🙂
