February 2020 Update

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Hello Everyone,

You may have wondered why there is no January News.

Sadly we had the devastating news last week that Keith's Mesothelioma which was pleural i.e.lung has now progressed to peritoneal i.e.stomach. 

Unfortunately no more can be done in the circumstances other than pain relief and the prognosis is weeks.

Words cannot express how I feel given that Keith is my whole love of my life and I am sure you understand this.

He said the best thing we did was to get married last July. On 3 January this year we have been together for 39 years. 

He is now home with me at the Lodge and can see the beautiful garden he has created especially as it is now Hellebores season and in fact he came to the Lodge in March 1976.

The District nurse now calls daily to administer pain relief drugs to him.

We would like to thank you all for continuing to check his website news and catch up on the garden despite it not being open over the last 4 years and for all the support and kindness received and are so grateful to have had such lovely friends, family and acquaintances. 

There will be just one final update in the future. 

Keith and Moira xx
