On their behalf...

When I wrote the last post I said it was Mum's intention to write you all very soon and indeed it was. She has been receiving so many lovely comments, support, cards, gifts and love from so many of you out there that she wanted to write to all you very badly.

However, I have been chatting with Dad/JP this evening and as Mum's condition seems to be declining rather more quickly than any of us expected, he asked me to write and thank you all for supporting her with all your comments and good wishes. This is on behalf of Mum/Moannie as well as from Dad/JP,  as he has been very touched by the effect that you have had on her over the years and more importantly recently. Dad doesn't really understand this technology of the internet and blogging, he doesn't use a mobile phone but has enjoyed hearing the stories and reading some of Mum/s favourite posts etc when she would print them out for him.

I'm sorry to have have to tell you that Mum cannot get to her beloved Paco and is rarely out of bed now.
I'm sure you can all in fill in the blanks.

I will continue to to post here ( as my brother and sister may do so also ) and I will keep you informed as to Moannie's condition. She is still  at home with Dad looking after her, Milou is on guard at the bottom of the stairs; my brother NOAOS visits most days and shores up our Dad; my sister visited this weekend and made some hearty soup that they both relished and sat with Mum throughout the weekend.

Again thank you for always stopping by and being here.

luv Saz xx

  1. We will be praying for Moanie and the family. And sending love to her. That is the strongest thing of all - just to say we love you, in the sunshine or in the shadow.

  8. I pray for peace for you all during this time. I know how hard it is for you and your brother and sister, as I lost my dad to cancer. tears.....we will all miss her so much. I am privileged to have had the past year and a half to have spoken to her through the blogs and even an email. I do so adore her. Hugs to you all.

  12. Prayers for Moannie and her family. This is the first time i've commented even though i do follow het pretty regularly. It requires strength and concern to take time out of your very busy and difficult days to keep us posted about Moannie. I hope she knows how much we care for her and think of her in our prayers.

  27. My love and best wishes to you all.

    Sad times - sad to read - but also something about this post made me smile - the oneness of a family in crises, this is when the best of families shines through and I realise that most of the things that occupy my daily thoughts are not important at all - this is important - we too often lose sight of that
