Lynn is in very good hands, being looked after and made as comfortable as possible.
Her energy levels are very low and at times she can be a little confused, this is inevitable and we make the most of our conversations when possible, at other times reassurance and support get us through.

Lynn is in a room with another very young lady who has a similar condition, she also has two infant children, Lynn after hearing her heartbreaking story and the way this lady is planning and coping with her illness said "I thought I had it bad, this lady is my true inspiration" said whilst tears streamed down Lynn's face..

This is the measure the of MY inspiration, Lynn!

Thorpe Hall Hospice

Lynn has had a very bad time of it during the last few days.
It has been a gradual decline of energy and strength leading to two seizures yesterday.
She had been laid up in bed for almost 2 solid days, without much sleep & major discomfort, but very little pain. So between the two of us, we made the decision that due to fatigue and the need for a full review of her medication to admit her to Thorpe Hall hospice.
This decision was made easy due to the fact that our good friend Chrissie is a nurse there and took time out of her holiday to show Lynn and I around, introduce us to all the staff and make us feel that this was not a scary place, but one of care and the best place for Lynn to be.
Bless you Chrissie!

Above is a very edited version of Lynn & the family story since the last update, and all of us are almost running on empty, so spare a thought for both the Buchan & Masson family during this difficult time.

Lynn will not be seeing any visitors during the first part of her stay at Thorpe Hall, this is her choice and on the Doctors advice. Seeing visitors at this stage would have a detrimentle effect on any possible benefit during her medication revision.
I will update as and when I can, but please bear in mind that Lynn is a very poorly lady, none of her treatment is working or has been stopped and she is simply being made as comfortable as possible.

Thanks again for all your support and prayers, we are truly blessed to have friends and family like you all.
God bless you all

Update June 10th

Update not mentioned on this video. (Sorry about the waterfall background noise)
Lynn has been extra tired and lethargic this week, her eyesight has been much worse than normal. We investigated what had changed in such a short time, and think we have cracked it. She has a tumour in her armpit that on occasion can bleed, so she was prescribed and anti-bleed tablet. This was the only change in medication, so after reading all the side effects of the drugs we stopped it and hey presto, much better. Saturday was a much better day. This in combination with taking things in her stride and adapting to day to day living will be the way forward.
