I received an email from Rob this morning. Here are a few parts of it:
Please take a seat and a deep breath before you read this. I do not want to speak negatively but I must pass on what I have been told in the last 2 days.
Over it all the promise I have for Bev right from the start of this is John 11:4 "This sickness is not unto death but for the glory of God."
We were asked permission to have her moved from Singleton to Ty Olwen. Ty Olwen is a hospice in the grounds of Morriston hospital but is the center for palliative care. The aim was for the pain and her sickness to be dealt with there before moving on to other treatments.
While I was there I asked to see the doctor. The doctor's message was quite clear. Bev is very sick and is not likely to leave Ty Olwen alive. While I was there they changed the medication in the driver and Bev went asleep. She would not even wake for her food.
Today (Saturday) I went in this morning to see Bev and there was a little improvement, but she was not responsive and not waking at all. I went again this afternoon and another doctor asked to see me. (both doctors are registrars at Ty Olwen). This doctor made it very clear that they are not happy that Bev should be so far "out of it" (my term) with a low dosage of this painkiller. Also her breathing is not normal. She has a sequence of shallow breaths followed by a very deep one.
I do not want to be the bearer of bad news but I needed to tell you all what I have been told by the doctors looking after Bev.
Thank you all for your support"
It looks like Bev and Rob need all the energy or prayer or good thoughts we can send to them. The entire cancer ordeal has been very trying for both of them.
