    I'm so sorry for your loss, Firenze.

    My sister Maggie has now been in a hospice a week or so. Her drug regime looks to be optimum, but she is now not eating or drinking. The family visits. The end (please God) cannot be far away.

    Dear Lord, have mercy on us poor sinners.

    Love to all who post on this comforting thread.

    Do not worry about the mercy of God, RR. All will be well. Sounds as though Maggie has her bag packed and when the Angel of Death turns up it will be “ where the heck have you been? let’s get moving!”

    thoughts for those suffering or grieving of course.

    I am so lucky that I am not doing either, but I had a BreastClinic appt this morning. I have another very small lump. The Consultant said,' Yes, something there. Now, what to do?!' For the present the answer is keep taking the pills, the ones beginning with A, and see him again in three months. My heart could well give up first.

    However, :I wake up every morning and carry on as normal! I think this rather surprises Southampton Cardiology!

    Prayers for SusanDoris. For comfort and peace. Endocarditis is ennervating to live with, but eveeryday is a bonus. Like SD, my cardioologists are rather surprised I am still here!
    No news sbout my sister, which is agonising.

    Blessings to all who post here.

    I haven't heard the word endocarditis so far - I'll google it in a minute.

    I agree it is especially hard when it is a much-loved sibling. One of my brothers died six years ago in a, fortunately, very caring hospice.

    Bless all of you for your prayers. Spoke with my elder sister today, which was a comfort for both of us. Typically, she has written a poem and is painting a picture.

    Dear Partner just tested positive for Covid in a home-test. We'll do official ones tomorrow and by then I hope if I have got it they'll see that because my test just before was negative. I am (we are) vaxxed and boostered to the gills and in the middle of my drug cycle right now so it could be worse, I suppose. The trouble is my lungs are shot from radiation in 2010 and my immune system is not too flash either after 4 years of targeted chemo (whatever it's called) and my bloods are all over the place. (Some high, some low of normal which makes for a colourful printout). Statistics in general here are going down nicely too and we have a nice hospital up the road just 15 minutes
    And it was just my birthday so that's a bigger number to get carved on my headstone.

    BUGGER IT
  • NicoleMRNicoleMR Shipmate

    Woke up to a whole pile of texts and mails telling me how x got it but y (the partner or kids or whatever in the same house) didn't.
    If anyone can do this it's ME!

    You are, G, you are😻😻😻
  • SojournerSojourner Shipmate
    And FWIW my 73year old SIL who has chronic lung disease did not catch it from her daughter, SIL and 2 grandkids despite several days if close contact. One can only hope.

    Will you sell tickets?
  • SarasaSarasa All Saints Host
    Fingers crossed @Galilit . Our son had covid over Christmas, and neither husband and I got it.
    @RockyRoger , so sorry to hear about your sister.
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host, Epiphanies Host
    Come on in across the Tiber, @Galilit. (Though the water may be warmer than the spaces on the other side!) Nothing a heart-felt recital of the Five Luminous Mysteries on a water-logged rosary couldn't fix.

    Just have to say I love this, and am now on a mission to import it here.

    Going to get a mammogram today, wish me luck and good results.

    Thinking of you @NicoleMR .
  • @NicoleMR Wishing you the best news.
  • DooneDoone Shipmate
    All the best, @NicoleMR 🕯
  • NicoleMRNicoleMR Shipmate
    It turns out it wasn't just a mammogram I was having today, it was also breast sonograms. So I did that, the results were reviewed by a doctor and I assume they were good as I was allowed to go home without seeing the doctor. I will see my own oncologist soon and presumably she'll tell me the results.
  • jedijudyjedijudy Heaven Host, 8th Day Host
    Hoping for your oncologist to have only good news for you, NicoleMR!
