Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
Jane suffered an extreme reaction to a chemo session yesterday. The infusion had to be stopped immediately after literally just a minute or two. Here is part of an email from Ann which sums up the situation:

My Darling Nigel
Latest news is that Jane has signed a paper to the effect that if she has a cardiac arrest ( a real
possibility ) she does not want to be resuscitated. Now that there is nothing that can be done
for her she has had enough,but still resisting hospice care.........

Lots of love
Ann xxxxxxxxx

Pete, you're absolutely right, that's precisely what she thinks. The sad truth is that that is almost certainly now what will happen. It is our fervent wish that Jane spends her final days & hours, free from pain, dignity preserved, surrounded by her Family, in a peaceful environment with caring professionals waiting in the wings for when they are needed. I spoke to Ann this morning & she intimated that Jane might be having a change of heart.
         Wendy, I know St.Francis Hospice well. My Father spent his final days there.
         All of your most recent posts are filled with so much Love & Tenderness. I am rendered speechless.
         Gnu, "Some things..." Without knowing, I know & understand.

         I suspect we shall be dropping anchor soon,
                      With Deepest Love to You All,
                                                                   Nigel & Ann.
