Sadly...


Sadly, Mum deteriorated on Wednesday and now isn't going to be able to come home - indeed, isn't aware of where she is. Most of my time since then has been spent at her bedside at the hospice with various other family members taking shifts with me. Such a horrible time - and not over yet.

Such a sad time for you, and I understand only too well. I was in the same position just over 2 weeks ago....Mum's funeral on Wednesday. I hope you don't have to wait too long for her to be at peace. X
