Farewell to Germany

I’m currently sat in the departure area (it couldn’t be described as a lounge!) at Frankfurt Hahn airport awaiting our flight back to the UK. We should arrive back at Stansted Airport around 3pm GMT.

It has just been announced that the flight is delayed by 30 mins – well, Jenny was always late for everything!

This morning has been a lot more difficult than I thought it would when leaving the clinic. We all had an early breakfast in the clinic an a lot of the people there came to wish us all well. I managed to speak to the nursing staff, administration and Dr. Herzog himself and expressed our gratitude for all their efforts. All Jenny’s medical teams have been amazing over the last 4 years and I’ll be eternally grateful for all their efforts. However, Dr. Herzog was the one medical person who gave her hope when all other options had been exhausted. As long as Jenny wanted treating, he would continue to treat her – that was all we both wanted to hear.

The send off from the clinic was amazing and very moving for all of us. Special bonds were made and friendships cemented all under the positive banner of what most of us now regard as the premier private cancer clinic anywhere in the world – only the best for Jenny.

We’ll be boarding soon as then I suppose the hard work will really start after we land. Originally I didn’t want Jenny to die in Germany but all things considered there was a large amount of comfort that I took from the fact it happened in a place where we had both met amazing people and experienced a positive, life changing couple of months. In hindsight I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. We knew this was a long shot before we left the UK but like everything Jenny and I embarked on together we gave it everything and for that I have no regrets.

We will be reunited soon. Keep The Faith. xx

  6. Hi, I do think this is an excellent web site.
    I stumbledupon it 😉 I may return yet again since I book-marked it.
    Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide other people.

    • We need a lot more insgthis like this!

    • GP you have issues with geography, which is a matter of fact. So it is good to say where one comes from because at least it is the truth. In addition to that I have to get this straigh! In your post you use often the word “hate”, and “pissed off”. Then you say that you are happy??! How would you explain it?

    • Yes, staying home with a newborn is incredibly isolating. Both of my new moms’ groups have met 2-3 times per week. Parks, houses, kiddie music classes, etc.

    • That’s a beautifull nice and cosy teahouse!I started last year with a tea garden for the vistors of my garden. I bake cake and pie with apples that come out of the garden.

    • last meal is a toughie. I'd probably want to go to one of the best chef's restaurants (Ramsay, Keller, Colicchio, Bourdain etc-heck, invite them all too!) and just ask them to make me something special, money is no object and take your time.

    • I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great info I was looking for this information for my mission.

    • Salve,mi sono laureata alla magistrale di biotecnologie mediche e farmaceutiche. A giugno mi sono abilitata alla professione biologo senior e adesso mi sto immatricolando alla scuola di specializzazione di biochimica clinica.In realtà questa scelta non è del tutto voluta, ma ho tentato e sono entrata. Adesso mi chiedo se è comunque possibile lavorare senza il titolo della scuola di specializzazione (che comunque vincola la persona per 5 anni senza essere nemmeno retribuita, a differenza dei medici) e se si quali sono le possibilità lavorative ad oggi, sia in campo ospedaliero che privato.GrazieAnnalisa

    • I’m just writing to let you know of the useful experience my daughter found studying your blog. She mastered so many details, not to mention what it’s like to have a great teaching heart to let other individuals effortlessly completely grasp selected tortuous matters. You undoubtedly did more than her expectations. Thanks for imparting those effective, healthy, revealing not to mention unique thoughts on the topic to Tanya.

    • Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

    • Kev, what time of day do you prefer to train at, morning,afternoon or evening, do you prefer to have a lot of you daily food intake in you before hitting the plates? Ps. how many inches are those arms back up to, they look like their heading for over 21′s?! Great website for all muscle fans, keep it up.

    • I don’t know why, but I like quarterbacks who are not white. It’s just some weird thing for me, a white guy from England.For me, apart from signing Nmandi, I was delighted we picked up Vince Young. He has a 30-18 record, yet was treated like shit by Tennessee.Don’t like Culpepper though, he was finished years ago and should just give it up.

    • Watching coach McCarthy doing his best to keep his composure during his presser. Class act.Kudos to coach McCarthy for quickly deflecting the miserable officiating and keeping to convo centered on the play.Not bad for a coach who just got robbed!

    • We have the same problem in Canada. Bleach, packages of frozen vegetables, toothpaste, bread, meat and various other items are now all in smaller packageing. Whenever there is a decent sale on items I buy four, six or even twenty of an item.Food prices NEVER go down so buy things up while you can. It is just common sense.VA:F [1.9.21_1169](from 0 votes)

    • If someone is advising Shearer to sit back and simply rely on people disliking Key – then that ain't much of a strategy.Lange didn't sit back – he took on Muldoon and damn well won.We need more than just a dislike of Key. We have that in abundance.We need an alternative; a vision of a fairer society; and a truckload of hope.Otherwise, f**k it, might as well sell up; pack up; and jump the ditch.

    • Ken, this morning’s sermon at First Birmingham (Sunday after Easter) really spoke to me. It was about the apostle Thomas’ struggle. I would be doing Carl Price a disservice if I tried to summarize it, but I hope to get you a copy. He talked about how doubt is universal, and how it can lead to breakthroughs, and so forth.

    • The answer to number 1 is easy. “You look great”. Jack hit the nail on the head.Of course, some guys are into it …On number 10, the sad thing is, women say they don’t like guys like that (and I have not read the book), but it works. Then again, being a wimpy nice guy that’ll put up with anything doesn’t work either. On number 4, I mean, what would you expect after 5 years and 9 months? Even so, that’s what fingers and kissing are for … == The Geek ==

    • / Consider the source … Barack Obama! Fox News did not put those words in his mouth and those communist thoughts in is head. I read the entire speech .. putting it in context makes it worse. As an independent and an entrepreneur who's risk capital has seen both success and failure; as a business owner and who has employed lots of help, I now have a damn good reason not to give Obama my vote. I'll vote for the venture capitalist.

    information to work on. You have done a outstanding job!

  15. Roland & Belinda

    We can’t tell you how deeply saddened we are to hear of Jenny’s death. We feel so blessed to have shared our time at the clinic with you both and we have many happy memories. A cancer clinic seems like such a depressing place to be but we found the atmosphere there so uplifting thanks to people like you two. There was always laughter dispite the dreadful situation we’d all found ourselves in. I hope you realise Andy what an amazing support you must have been to Jenny, I’m sure everyone at the clinic with us would agree that you were the ultimate “jockstrap”.
    Love and hugs to you Andy and to Gemma
    we are thinking of you

    I am so very very sorry for your loss, sometimes there are simply no words that can offer any comfort but i have learnt from this blog that you and your beautiful wife are truly inspirational, you both fought an almighty battle with such grace, dignity and elegance.

    You do not know me and i have never had the pleasure of meeting your lovely jenny either. I first learnt of this blog via a friends facebook page and i have read on with hope and interest ever since the first blog entry. I am a palliative care nurse, i love my job and i am privileged for every single second i get to spend with my awe inspiring patients. However Andy, your beautiful, honest and heartfelt posts have taught me such a great deal. While i pride myself on providing the best care possible, this has been an amazing insight into the real journeys of patients and their beloved families. One day in the future, i truly beleive that this blog should be made into a book and published. I have shed many tears reading your posts, but mostly, i am truly privileged to have been allowed to follow your journey and so many others would benefit.
    God bless, with love and deepest sympathy to everyone touched by jenny,

J’ai une vague idée des thèmes que je veux aborder mais j’ai bien peur de ne pas tenir sur le long terme par défaut progressif de motivation.Qu’est ce qui vous motive à bloguer ? A quoi pensez-vous quand vous prenez de votre temps pour rédiger un article ? Comment mesurez-vous les retombées ?

    • Sweet! (both the outfit and the day off!). I loved having a day off during the week (although mine was every fortnight). I didn’t do a lot of thinking (because I never really do) but it was good to be able to do jobs that couldn’t be done on weekends, even things like the grocery shopping, because it meant that husby and I had more free time as a couple on the weekends, and that was nice! I’m sure you’ll be more productive than me though!!

    To all the Roberts, Roe and Standish family’s,

    I am at a loss to find the right words here! Jenny has been the most amazing lady, she fort so bravely for such a long time. But by her side she had the love and support of Andy, Gemma and all her close family and friends – which much have given Jenny the courage and love she needed.

    We have to hope dreams do come true….. Keep the faith.

    I can’t quite believe that you’re gone Jen, although when I was with you last weekend I guess I knew that we were really up against it and tried to prepare myself for what was coming, but how do you do that? Can’t quite imagine how things will be from now on without you, you’ve been in my life for all of it and I always just took forgranted that us four girls would grow old together. It goes without saying how much I already miss you and always will. At least you’re finally out of the pain kiddo, and you can rest easy now. See you in a couple of days when you get home. Love Juzza.xxxxxx

    To Andy, Cathy, Gemma, Helen and Justine,

    I’ve had the absolute pleasure of knowing Jenny since our uni days and I have many, many amazing memories of the good times I shared with Jenny.

    The parts which stick out in my mind were when we lived together in Manchester and then Liverpool: from the many times when Jenny travelled back with me to Northern Ireland (everywhere Jenny seemed to go in NI she was adored!), to when I would go across to Birkenhead and devour Cathy’s awesome sunday dinners!

    I’m very proud to call Jenny one of my best mates and I told her on many an occasion from the run up to leaving England and since coming over to Australia last year, that I’ll always be thankful to Jenny for giving me the push I needed to get my act together and come back to oz, and the importance of being happy!

    Jenny’s a diamond and will be fondly remembered by everyone who met her.

    I will miss her dearly.

    Thinking of you all and sending lots of love,

    Try to take some comfort from Germany Andy. It was what Jen wanted more than anything, it was her faith and hope that drew her to take on such a brave and determined action. She said to me one day that going to Germany was her reaching to the stars, and didn’t she just? No one could had fought a more dignified fight but sadly it wasn’t meant to be x I’ll never forget that conversation it was so inspirational. I’m proud and honoured to have been a very tiny part in Jens fight and will always see her as a bright star now when I look up to the sky x Safe journey and love to you all xxxx

    Sorry to hear of your great loss,we only spent 3 weeks with you guys at the clinic but it was obvious you both were very special people who touched everyone you both came in to contact with.Our thoughts are with you in this sad time in your life but remember all those fantastic times you both spent together.

    Love Carol and John xxxxx

  22. John & Mary

    Andy, we were absolutely privileged to have you and Jenny as neighbours and friends at the clinic. Even in your worst times you were both ready to reach out to help us and others, even to the extent of sharing some therapeutic ales at Nidda with Mark and myself! You got us through with your laughter, compassion, and spirit. Your loss is our loss too. I know Jenny is at peace and just wants you to take your time to rebuild your life. We’ll never forget her and will always be inspired by you both.

    A big hug from both of us, Andy, and please stay in touch.

    John & Mary

    Dear Andy, Gemma, Cathy, Helen, Justine and Popo,

    I remember first meeting Jenny way back when we were students at Stephenson house in 2002. Its funny how paths cross through life, I never imagined at that time our paths would cross again 5 years later at a chance meeting and a girlie lunch. Over the past 5 years that I have got to know Jenny I feel privileged to have known such a wonderful person that she was. She was a true inspiration and a beautifully strong, courageous person. I will so miss the chats and laughs we used to have (as well as catching up on celebrity/tv gossip and sharing some retail therapy tips!).

    Through this journey we have got to know those around Jenny and the people in her life. We feel truly blessed to have been part of her life and to meet the lovely genuine people around her.

    We will miss her,

    Lots of love & hugs,

    Niggy, Jon, Ben & Sophia xxxxxKeepTheFaithxxxxxx

    Andy I’m glad your coming home with fond memories of Germany. You’re right in that it was a fitting place for Jen to pass away as although lots of her friends and family could not access you or Jen , she was in the place that gave her the most hope and that in itself is priceless. I know that things will be difficult when you get home but you will find your way . You have all of your lovely family and friends here to suport you and a whole new bunch of dear friends that you will no doubt be getting in touch with soon. Safe flight xxxxxxxx

  29. Jo & Vinny

    Andy, Gemma and the Roe-Roberts gang,

    You are all in our thoughts and we’ll forever hold Jen as an inspiration. ‘”What Would Jenny Do?’ is my new mantra to kick me in the arse when I’m feeling scared, anxious, miserable or unappreciative. Andy, you and Jenny have made a huge impact on so many people’s lives – many people you’ve known for years, many who have only recently had the pleasure of knowing you. Both of you have humbled us, inspired us and made us think just a little bit more about taking the time to talk, smile, listen to others, whether we know them or not. You’ve shown us the essence of love, compassion and humanity.

    Keep the faith and pay it forward.

    Jo & Vinny x

  30. Jill Hamilton

    Keeping the Faith Andy. I will see you both soon. Xxxxxx

  31. Iain, Emma and Michael

    Jenny’s strength and determination will live on in you, and everyone whose life she touched. We are all indeed to lucky ones for having had the opportunity to have met and loved Jenny.

    Keep the Faith, and Keep The Memory!


  32. Claire Standish

    Andy, we all think you are amazing and everything you have done for Jenny has been remarkable; you’ve showed the most incredible courage, strength and belief, and made Jenny herself, and everyone who follows this blog and knows you, beyond proud. You fought to the end and never gave up hope – a true rock to Jenny. She sleeps peacefully now, knowing that her husband loved her more than anything and stood side by side with her until the end and forever onwards. Take care Andy; if you need anything at all, you know where we are; please just ask. All our love to you and see you very soon. Mark, Claire and Thomas xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • Hi Meghan! it’s great when we can find things that help us have the tastes we want without being out of control. I keep trying to accomplish that! Thanks for stopping by, please visit again!

    • Actually John, you more or less agreed with him.Your response could have otherwise been worded as ‘yes I agree, except I don’t think our democracy is that great either.”

    • Надо было покупать в другой комплектации машину, у меня ESP, и никуда не сносит, даже при экстренных поворотах, не то что н5A8а кочках и ямах, а нормальные водители ямы объезжают.

    • My friend and I both had out bikes stolen from on campus within a week of eachother. As far as I can tell, UW police aren’t doing a thing about this. UW needs to set up better bike parking facilities – as it stands, they’re just allowing this to happen.

    • Great challenge, I used some bee paper that was from a nest we almost threw away but the paper the bees made was just too pretty. Glad I could use it for this challenge. Thanks.

    • Those give a decidedly new impression of Antarctica, challenging the (presumably widely held? or just by me?) notion that it is really only home to flocks of fish-eating penguins. And scientists who eat whatever scientists eat. (Lichen, that’s what Antarctic scientists eat. Just like reindeer do up in Lapland. Bits of lichen with ketchup. Fried lichen. Lichen matzo balls.)

    • Querida Todavía, no se me preocupe =) Aquí andaremos. Esto no se acaba,hasta que se acaba.jajaja todo lo que dijiste sólo acrecetó mi amor por ese felino, es demasiado inteligente!!Te mando las fotos a tu correo vale? 😉

    • Matthew 6:5-6 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”Seems like that page is missing from a lot of people’s bibles.

    • fbI am not sure the place you are getting your information, however good topic. I must spend a while finding out more or understanding more. Thanks for fantastic info I was searching for this info for my mission.

    • I do accept as true with all of the concepts you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

    • Good ol’ Stinky! I told you he’d get the job done! I’m really going to miss your posts and advise, and ESPECIALLY your jokes! Glad we got to meet you in person. Wishing you & Scott God’s richest blessings in your new endeavors!

O mais legal é que parece facinho facinho com a Júlia fazendo, mas quando eu tento aqui em casa eu me queimo no babyliss, borro tudo na hora da make ou me atrapalho toda com meu cabelo (que é muito!). Espero que um dia eu consiga chegar nesse nível de prática e eficiência 😀
