I am sorry to say this new fight is a losing battle for Malcolm. The cancer is in the stomach lining and cannot be treated. The consultant said if he was strong enough they would consider chemo after Jan but that gives him a year. Without chemo need I say more.
Yesterday he was spaced out on morphine and annti nausea tablets and antibiotics and he was falling and unable to eat . He did not know where he was and was confused. We were worried. Today on the phone he sounded more with it but that was before they gave him pain relief.
Our family have been great. Engineer son spent 2 days at hospital with me and the others were on the phone almost hourly.
On a lighter note as visiting times are restricted on his new ward I went to a panto rehearsal. One of the songs I have to sing is “I want to be Happy” There’s irony for you. But I felt better for being there. Life goes on. It must.
