CLM hope the visit to the hospice went well, ours is beautiful with lovely gardens, and the staff are amazing, I hope you were happy with it, and you can get mum there soon.
Had to smile when you said she said to stop nagging her, good that she's still keeping you on your toes.love sandrax xx

Afternoon all. Well everything moved rather quickly yesterday! Dad and I hadn't even left to go to look around before they phoned to say they had a bed available today. We are currently sitting in her room with a cup of tea while she's snoozing away.

It's all very peaceful here and the staff are lovely. We've already had the dr in and two or three nurses have been in to see her. Mum looks far more comfortable here than she did in the bed at home. We were joking just now saying she must be able to tune out our voices as she doesn't stir when we talk but her eyes shoot open when it's a new voice!

My beautiful, brave, strong Mum passed away at 12.30am today. Dad, my brother and I were all with her as she finally gave in and went to sleep.

Your Mum will never leave you, she will be in your heart and mind forever, and one day you will smile again when you think of her. I am sending love and strength to you and all your family on the next stage of this terrible journey, please take care love sandrax xx

Dear CLM

I am so very sorry to hear that your very, very brave mum has passed. When I read your very first post, I could totally understand where you mum was coming from. I had hoped that you'd all be given a lot longer than the time that you had, after her shock diagnosis on Christmas Eve, after making such a difficult and brave decision not to have treatment.

I don't believe your mum could have wished for better support, you did your utmost and when I see a curly wurly in a sweetie shop I will think of you all.

wishing you all the strength in the world xx
