From: alison
Date: 27 Oct 11 - 05:28 AM

Hi everyone - it has been one of those years!!

If you aren't interested in good thoughts thread please don't bother reading any further..........

for the rest of you........... I would really appreciate your support

as you know Ryan, Shannon & I lost Mark to pancreatic cancer back in March.

Dad and Rosemary (my sister) came to Sydney to visit us in July and we had a lovely time together . Dad had hurt his back lifting a heavy pot before he came over, and it wasn't getting any better. He also had a hoarse throat following a dose of the flu. When he got back to Ireland an ENT specialist checked out the throat and sent him for a scan..............

the long and the short is - he has inoperable lung cancer, with secondaries in the spine and bones (hence the persistant sore back.)

they have tried radiotherapy which made him so weak that he is now in hospital.

I have flown back from Oz to help look after him. But Ryan & Shannon are in the middle of really big school exams and had to stay in Sydney (they will come over after their exams towards the end of November). We had been intending to come back for a nice family Christmas anyway - this has just brought the trip forward a bit.

They have been very brave but I know it is going to be very tough for them to watch their grandfather getting sicker, seeing as it is only a short while ago since they watched their dad pass away. It is extremely tough leaving them on the other side of the world............ it just seems so wrong to have to go through this again so soon at their age.

anyway - please do what you do so well, candles, prayers, good thoughts etc all gratefully received.

thanks

slainte

Let It Be
(Paul McCartney)

When I find myself in times of trouble,
mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom,
let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is
standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom,
let it be.

Let it be, let it be,
let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom,
let it be.

And when the broken hearted people
living in the world agree,
there will be an answer,
let it be.
For though they may be parted there
is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer.
let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....

And when the night is cloudy, there is
still a light, that shines on me,
shine until tomorrow, let it be.
I wake up to the sound of music,
mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom,
let it be.

Let it be, let it be, .....

Let It Be

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Alison, thank you for letting us know and for letting us help in whatever ways we are able. You have always been the FAIR ONE (imagine those rainbow colours Big Mick always adds) and I will keep that image of you in my heart and thoughts as I give thanks for Light, Life, and Love enveloping you, your Da, and Ryan and Shannon. I am sure, having been raised by you, they are strong and resilient. The exams will give them something to focus on, then they will be more able to be present and help you and their grandda. I am giving thanks for this, or something better, for the highest good of all concerned.

Much Love and Light,

Hey al........you know we're always here and always going to do whatever we can for one of our own. While I can easily see and believe you are a fine sister and daughter, I am also completely sure you're a great Mom. I know too that Ryan and Shannon had solid parenting and the model of love and caring was shown to them every day as they grew up.

I had that too. When I woke up on my 16th birthday, I had two fantastic parents and two living grandparents and all was right with the world. When I woke up at age 23 they were all gone.......the world was different but it was still okay. I think you have given Ryan and Shannon the same things my parents gave me................

You are in my thoughts and the very best ones are for all of you.

Much Love,

Pat

Alison I've enjoyed your posts for more than a decade although we've not directly chatted. And I don't venture "below the salt" that often so I'm not often visiting this type of thread. But here I am today.

Best thoughts to you and Ryan and Shannon. Loss sucks doesn't it, including this temporary distance from your kids. Life will be okay in the fullness of time although getting through such fundamental change typically isn't a barrel of laughs. These are the times when living for the moment is all there is, whether painful or pleasurable. (Some would say that's always true...but that's another thread.) I trust completely that the coming weeks and months will result in shared memories that all of you will treasure after the illness and your dad have moved on. My heart goes out to you.

Hi alison,

Sending love and light to all of you. May the sweet tenderness of the love you all share permeate as many minutes of each day as possible.

May the love you have for one another be experienced as love made manifest in your caring for one another and tending to your father include comfort, even as it pierces your hearts still blistered from the freshly remembered and still exquisitely felt experience of Mark's dying process and loss.

May you and your family experience some solace in the knowledge you are wrapped in the care and concern of this community.

May you dwell in your hearts.

Janie

Alison,

I haven't been on here in AGES. I did, however know of your husband's illness...I am so sorry for your loss!

Here's a prayer that has proven successful for family and friends. There are slightly different versions available if you search online for St. Peregrine.

My prayers are with you and your family.

Mary
-----------------------

Novena and Prayer to St. Perigrine

Prayer to Saint Peregrine

O great St. Peregrine, you have been called "The Mighty," "The Wonder-Worker," because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God for those who have had recourse to you.

For so many years you bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease that destroys the very fibre of our being, and who had recourse to the source of all grace when the power of man could do no more. You were favoured with the vision of Jesus coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction. Ask of God and Our Lady, the cure of the sick whom we entrust to you.

(Pause here and silently recall the names of the sick for whom you are praying)

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession, we shall sing to God, now and for all eternity, a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.
Amen.
