Bill and I spent a very happy three hours with Dave on Sunday. Typical Dave, I left with a gift of a book ( thanks Dave I spent the afternoon today in the garden with Inspector Morse) while he insists he does not need anything.We had a lovely time talking about the old days and also saw Linda, who is being wonderful. We also saw Peter , Dave's twin brother who is there 24/7, so take care Peter and get a bit of rest!
It was lovely to see you David, and thanks for the singing ,YES he did! See you again soon, and love to Linda and Peter.

Thanks for all your messages, Dave is very amused at some of the comments. Although he is quite calm and resigned hearing them keeps his spirits up. PHART - Dave would love to see all of you. He will be in hospital for another week or two but then they hope to move him to a nursing home. He is going to try to do a posting himself which I will send on.

On a positive note, a friend of mine has a secondary tumour and was told there was nothing they could do, she has been having some new drug as a sort of guinea pig and at her most recent scan the tumour had almost disappeared off the scale, hope they try it on you - in the meantime hang on to that wonderful sense of humour.

I went in to see Dave last night.

He's in pretty good spirits and dealing with all the practicalities that the situation has thrown up.

He told me that there is no treatment, the cancer is too wide spread and that all they can do is make him comfortable.

If you get a chance please go visit - he really enjoys having people around and you will come away feeling quite humbled by the way that this guy is coping with his impending death. It puts our everyday moans and groans into real perspective.

Oh, and as usual with Dave, you will be lucky to get a word in edgeways! :0D

Hi Dave... wanted to add my own warm thoughts and hugs (for both of you), but am also at something of a loss as to what to say to this shocking, �#!+≠ news.

Am remembering your & Linda's warm hospitality last spring (2004) -- after having met me only briefly at the European Gather in/near Hull. Based on those two weekends, I have to confess to a serious suspicion that once you are in a 'rest' home, there will be a lot less resting going on there -- but a lot more laughing and singing!

Keeping you both in my thoughts,

Vikki

Dave may have somewhat the same reaction my brother had. My brother had lymphoma for 12 years then finally developed bladder cancer in 1999 and died. He was 62.

When he was first diagnosed and people came to see him and commiserate with him, he said that at first he was puzzled, he couldn't quite put his finger on it. Then he realized that some people were talking to him as though he were facing something that they never would. My brother was very aware of his own mortality; but, as he said, the only difference between him and his friends was that he was likely - but not with certainty - to die before they.

Enjoy this experience as much as you can, Dave. I plan to - as much as I can - take an active interest in my own endtime.

Hi Dave & Linda

Only just picked this up. What sad news. If it's any consolation, my sister had advanced cancer diagnosed in 1981 and despite having been in a coma and given less than 24 hours on 3 occasions did not pass away until April this year. After her very poor diagnosis she just decided to live each day as it comes. She came and saw us last Sept and we went to a pub session, played, drank and smoked away the evening although we knew she was heading for the final few months (she lived in Spain). I have some very fond memories ...so my message is fight on, you never know no matter how bad it is, and enjoy each day.

Sarah

Dave is still keeping cheerful, and is feeling a lot more comfoteable. He is hoping to be able to use a wheelchair soon so he can visit the outside world. (Actually there's a nice Sheps pub just by the hospital entrance). He looks forward to having visitors and phone calls. If you would like the details please PM me.

My brother's reaction was an inspiration to me, Wolfgang. And since nothing ever comes out of nothing- he said that his own inspiration came from someone else. His father in law whom he deeply loved, he said, taught him how to die.

My brother loved life- and he really wanted to become an old man someday. At the same time, he was aware that many people don't get to have as long a life as he had already had, and he was grateful for his own longevity.

As someone said about you above, Dave, people frequently spoke about my brother's gifts to them. We all left his presence more cheerful and profoundly grateful and respectful of the extraordinariousness of ordinary people.

My brother was a musician- and whenever I came to visit him he would suggest a song or two. I have many cassette tapes of our singing and playing up to a week before he died.

Well. Making another attempt at posting. We are both still coughing , so can't visit yet. Thanks for the phone call. Good to talk . This'll make you laugh, Dave. We went to Knockholt on Saturday, it pissed with rain, so we had our picnic in the car. At the same time as I fel over the marquee guy ropes , Trevor smashed up my antique plastic coated, metal folding chair ! Fancy trying to sit on it ! He propped it up with a log, which they kept trying to nick for the fire. We left early due to sore bums , and smoke inhalation. Also tired leopard cubs. Lots of love.

Richard, we would love to make the mudgather, but don't think Dave will be up to that. He is feeling much better and is having an MRI scan today to see if radiotherapy on his spine will help him become more mobile. If this works then he should be able to leave hospital/nursing home for a few hours, but overnight will probably not be an option. Drink a toast to him there, we'll be with you in spirit.

Dave's radiotherapy is taking place every morning until Thursday. On Friday he is moving to a nursing home in Chislehurst. Visitors are welcome at the hospital in the afternoons still and after that at any time in the home. If the treatment proves effective he may be able to come home for a few hours or even go to the pub, so keep your fingers crossed.

On the A12 near Witham the wheel fell off the trailer,3 hours passed while Dave and Bill went to Colchester for a wheel bearing(wrong one first time!We arrived at Petts wood after midnight and turned down the offer of a spag bol to return home and move house.A barrel of bricks comes to mind! Dave is really enjoying all these old stories so what story do you have to tell us and keep his spirits up? Does anyone else remember "God is alive and living in Beckenham with a Barclaycard?"
