Has been a while since I have been on this site, Pete lost his battle with GBM 6/9/13. Things started to change when he got lost going to work on the 19/8/13, quickly we saw changes to the point on the following Monday 26/8/13 I called for him to be taken for assesment so I could get our house prepared for the new Pete.
As he got assessed our wonderful coordinator told me that he was more then likely not coming home so onto the palliative hospital waiting list he went. Pete never got out of bed again.
He never did make it to the palliative hospital as no beds were available. We had such great staff at the hospital that Iam glad we stayed there, I slept on a mattress each night in the same room.
I was with him as he let out his final breath on the Friday afternoon 6/9/13.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
