thats understandable trace, the news has totally knocked you for six, it affects everyone different, and its like youve gone back to the happy times you spent with him. its a very hard time when you first get the news

i used to drive down to the home my dad was in every night in clacton just to sit with him, i just couldnt let him see i was breaking my heart inside

OMG, Tracy. :hug2: This has struck me harder than you'd ever imagine. My beloved Grandfather grew peas (among other vegetables and flowers) and he used to let me go in the garden and pick the peas and eat them fresh right there.

My Grandfather's birthday was yesterday. Many years gone :cry2: but still in my heart, strong as ever.

I am so very sorry that he has cancer. You know if wishes could change things...

You'll be there for him, and shower him with your love. That's the gift from you to him and he to you now, the everlasting love. :hug2:

If you ever need me, just let me know. :hug2:

How old is he Trace, you sound blessed to have him as your grandfather. I lost mine when I was 11 and never knew my other grandfather. he died before i was born. I still have happy memories of my grand-dad. I wish I had the time to know him as an adult. Prayers for your family to get you through the hard days ahead. :hug2:

Bring him a sweet! :yes: Anything he can manage to eat at this time is good. :yes: Getting the calories in, rather than being concerned where the calories come from is the focus.

You are a beautiful, strong woman Tracy. :hug2: You will walk this road with your Grandfather, and be there with your love for him each step of the way. It's your permanent gift to him, and what a beautiful one it is. Many a Grandfather doesn't have the love of a granddaughter, eh? :hug2:

Oh no! It didn't upset me, just struck me strongly. Actually, made me feel a stronger connection to you, if that makes sense?

Palliative care is all about comfort. :hug2:

Yes, they are. I wish everyone could have a special relationship with their grandparents. Nothing like it.
