I am very sad to report that my lovely hubby, Phil, passed away at lunchtime today at Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope.
Phil loved life and this last 4/6 weeks has been horrific. With the failure of Radium 223, the Cabazitaxel never got passed the 2nd infusion.
He has spent the last two weeks in the hospice. he was expertly cared for by the caring team and every effort was made to control the pain from the bone metastases. For some reason I stayed over last night, maybe we knew subconsciously? But I did a lot of chatting to him and told him it was ok to let go and join Wesley the Westie on Catbells in Keswick.
He was very peaceful at the end and suffered no trauma. He's now walking the fells with Wesley and looking down on us - I raise a glass or two tonight.
Take care folks.
