Peter

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 ❤

    1. 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! 🙂

  4. 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. 😦

    1. 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.
      Gentle-(((HUGS)))

    1. 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.

    1. 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.
      HUGS, Uta

      1. 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 🙂
