Re: My mum's story so far....

Hi Nicola, The photo album was a real last minute thing I did it on the morning of the funeral is know some people wouldn't be able to face it but as I said it was a real comfort.

Re: Come on Eileen (My Mam)

Hi Nicola My thoughts are with you its amazing the strength you find when you need it, if someone had told me what was coming in the last year I wouldn't have believed it.

Re: brother dying so much unresolved in his life

Hi, so sorry to read your last post, I wanted mum to stay at home she wanted to go to the hospice. She made the right decision as much as we would have done our best they are the experts and we were all so grateful she was there the care and compassion she was given was second to none. As one of the...

Re: My mum's story so far....

Hi Thanks again for everyones kind words. I decided to go and see mum in the chapel of rest, I have mixed feelings as she didn't look better than the last time I saw her, her mouth looked horrible and as someone else has posted I knew she wasn't there. Mum is the first dead person I've seen so even ...

Re: Dad Has a Rare Form of PC

Hi

Sorry don't know your name, my thoughts are with you and I hope you can keep your dad at home as long as is possible, but look into the local hospice it will be the best thing you can do do. My mum only passed away 2 days ago and I wouldn't wish for her to be anywhere else.
