The news following Jane's latest consultation is not good I'm afraid. The cancer is an extremely aggressive type, the most aggressive in fact. She begins another course of chemotherapy next week. If this programme of chemo proves ineffective, Jane's oncologist said there was nothing more they could do for her. If the chemo is effective, we are looking at a prolongation of life, not a cure. Desperate, desperate times.
                      With Love to You All,

I received a beautiful email recently, the subject of which was: "How be Ye?" I couldn't get those three words out of my head. I felt compelled to write the following:


How be Ye, this cold & frosty morn?

How be Ye? Time has passed since thee was born.

How be Ye? My trusted, dearest Friend.

How be Ye? When 'End' doth mean: 'The end'.

How be Ye? When the laughter turns to tears.

How be Ye? When days are left & no more years.

How be Ye? As the sun begins to set.

How be Ye? Must remember, can't forget.

How be Ye? As the vigil takes it's toll,

How be Ye? Sick at heart, bereft of soul?

How be Ye? As the darkness gathers in.

How be Ye? A fight that's lost, not one to win.

How be Ye? When the time to go arrives.

How be Ye? 'Twill be our Love that us survives.

                   With Love to You All,
                                                 Nigel & Ann.
                                                 xxxxxxxxxx

I enjoy ABBA's music, too. I wouldn't spend money to hear it but I smile, tap my foot, and hum along when it's on a radio, and I borrowed the Mamma Mia DVD from the library.

I'm glad you have had some lighter moments. You, too, Wendy.

I plan to be here tomorrow, though probably not until quite late. And one reason I'm so late tonight is that I had trouble connecting to the Internet tonight. I hope that doesn't happen again. I don't know what caused the problem, but I jiggled some cords and clicked some switches and everything's working at this moment. Anyway, I hope the angels hold Jane's hand during tomorrow's consultation.

I liked Abba's music and it's far reaching appreciation is clearly evident. Don't care for it as much these days but I can still tap my foot to some tunes if that's what's the best choice is.

I like any kind of music that I like and dislike anyone who judges me upon what I like... >;-)

Dear Nigel,

How lovely to read your last post,just proves that music lifts our spirits in a wonderful way and to share ABBA with the grandchildren is great, our grandchildren have been singing along to the DVD of the film since they were tiny and ,yes, I sing along too!

We had "a moment" on Saturday, as you know we are not able to go out often as we look after mum and, all last year avoided crowds because of Billy's chemotherapy. But we went to see Patricia Routledge and Piers Lane in " Admission one shilling" the story of Dame Myra Hess and the war time concerts in The National Gallery. It was a lovely evening.My son is the Theatre Manager ,St Georges in Great Yarmouth, a beautifully restored Wren Chapel now a Theatre and Arts Centre, so we shared the evening with seeing him.

So glad your other daughter is here,enjoy the rest of her visit.
Will think of Jane tomorrow as always,

much love

Wendy xxxxx

Two moments of lightness & brightness. Last week we took our two Granddaughters to see the stage show of 'Mamma Mia'. They are NOT 'Abba generation' kids by any stretch of the imagination, but they absolutely loved it. This gives me the opportunity to 'come out'...I love the Music of Abba too; there, I've said it! I realise that some of you may be shocked to read this admission, but it is my considered opinion that Björn & Benny have written some of the finest popular songs of last few decades, bar none.
          Our second 'moment' was the arrival of Jane's younger sister, all the way from Charlotte NC. She brings laughter & sunshine with her, wherever she goes. She has to fly home on Tuesday, but the few days she has spent with us have been a real tonic.
         Tomorrow, Tuesday, Jane has a 'key' consultation with her oncologist. Be with us on Tuesday, please,
          With Love to You All,
                                        Nigel & Ann.
                                        xxxxxxxxxx

Nigel, you and your family have been in my heart and my thoughts on a daily basis even when I have not been on line. At present I am traveling, visiting friends and performing in Brasstown, North Carolina. But you and I and all of us here are linked together, whether or not we are posting. One thing I learned, right here on Mudcat during my own bereavement:
LOVE NEVER DIES.

So, UP SPAW AND ALL Y'ALL.

I'm so sorry to add to your collective anxieties by not posting. 17th Feb. does seem a long, long way back. Reading through your posts since then, there is so much I want to comment on, so much thanks due.News, beautiful, compassionate outpourings; simple, sincere support; links to Music; the list seems almost endless. I've always wanted to & tried to respond to you individually, within each post. It would be more manageable for me to take an 'all embracing' approach, rather than individualising. Life being what it is, there will always be exceptions to this. What energy I have is divided up between Jane, my Marriage with Ann, Our Thread, mine & Ann's personal health issues & my Music. That 'energy supply' seems to be depleting in proportion to the rate of deterioration in Jane's health, so keeping on top of everything gets just that little bit harder, day by day, week by week.
       In the last week, further complications have come to light regarding Jane's health. I can't write about them publicly, but suffice to say, I have nothing good or positive to report.
       I want you to know that my love for all of you grows deeper as each day passes.
       I want you to know that my gratitude knows no bounds.
       I want you to know that without Our Thread, life, with all it's current awfulness, would be an unbearable nightmare.
       I want you to know that you have made a difference to my life, to Ann's life & through us, to Jane's life.
                         With Much Love to You All,
                                                                  Nigel & Ann.
