TO YOU ALL -

Thanks so much for your support & love. Alan says love helps. He is very weak inded & now in pain from his shoulder. He gave it 7/10 last nigt. So they are giving him more diamorph which he does not like. He is dopier & the patronising nurses say it isn't the morph making him sleepier. I know it is, I've nursed him since this began. Please pray for him & love him to make him pain free.& that we may have at least one more proper conversation.

=================

personal note: Alan's sickness (constant vomiting) has been diagnosed as resulting from a blockage associated with Morphine. He is currently (as far as I can tell) in the Hospice and seemingly (from time to time) swinging between "better" (asking for whiskey) and dopey and "out".

my thoughts are still with Alan and Trevor.

and if the main cause of his sickness is the morphine, why do they keep giving him more of it? there are other drugs for pain - maybe they don't relieve pain quite as thoroughly as the opiates do, but they have different side effects. (rickybuchanan has had a lot to say about pain medications.)

i will continue to petition the Universe to provide them, and you, with the best possible outcome for everyone concerned...
