My last update in this thread .....

Since I last wrote, Mum persisted in having 'good days' followed by 'bad days' - yesterday morning was very good, the afternoon quiet, the evening/night poor, a morning without meaningful communication and an afternoon in terminal decline. Amen.

Hi Chris,
I too am sorry to hear your sad news, I am sure your Mum will have felt very
loved and cherished, I too lost my Mum a couple of years ago,through old age,
but we too had a period of waiting for the inevitable outcome, you obviously
loved her dearly and she will always live on in your heart and mind, take care

Many thanks for your thoughtfulness.

Never before have I witnessed the kindness and caring that are shown (to strangers) on the forums on this site - you are a remarkable community/family that give support and knowledge to many people.

The ability to 'get it off your chest' in this environment can be very cathartic and it is surprising how many others can empahthise with your sentiments - this is very powerful for one's own moral well being.


God bless
