The Last Post? – The Silent Eye

This may be the final post that I get chance to write for the Silent Eye… that decision has been taken out of my hands. I spent much of last week in hospital, having, as many of you know, been diagnosed with incurable small cell lung cancer last September. It has been an interesting and…

  5. Thank you very much, dear Judith, for sharing your story

    “And while you are given lots of hope about the outcome while they wait for test results, it is not a surprise when you are told that the cancer that had started in your lungs has now set up multiple homes in your brain.”

    Peter too had been given the privilege of being able to say goodbye . . .

    Well, I cant help myself, looking at the similarities, dear Judith. Peter’s cancer had started in the bladder more than four years ago. A nuclear test at the end of September last year showed that the cancer had spread to his bones. We were told, in all probability he would only have months to live. Peter was then given palliative care at home. He died on 12/12/2020 surrounded by his loved ones. . .

    Peter had always been a very life affirming person. However, during the last few weeks of his life he felt more and more, that he could not last much longer. And then he really did not wish to stay alive any longer! And he was not afraid of being dead, not at all. He always said, that in death you go there where you were before you were conceived. His greatest concern was, that I would be left alone. But the children tried to assure him, that they would be looking after me.

    Many people love you, dear Judith. May this help you towards the end. VIRTUAL HUGS and lots of LOVE from your friend, Uta 🙂


    • Oh my dear friend. It is not my story but the story of a dear blogging friend. I am so sorry about Peter. I don’t know if I have been aware of his passing, but in any event I want you to know that while we have been only virtual friends I feel that we are friends, Take care,. Stay safe.

  6. Sorry for thinking it was your story. I must say the different names did not confuse me as much as the different pictures. The different pictures should have told me for sure that the person who wrote this blog was not you. Well, this blog was a very interesting read. Thanks for informing me about my error. I hope your dear friend is going to get all the medical care that she needs. Blessings to you, dear Judith. Keep well! Love, Uta 🙂
