    Its been a long while since i posted her but i felt like i should!
    My grandma passed away on satyrday morning after a very difficult and un settled couple of weeks!
    she was finally made calm on friday after my mum stood her ground and insisted medication to sedate her, she was peaceful in her last 24 hours this been somewhat of a huge relief!!
    I think we all take comfort in the knowledge she is no longer suffering after an 11 year battle with dementia.
    It is still a very sad time for us all!
    thank you for your support over the years!
    this probably wont be the last time I will post due to my other grandma been diagnosed with Alzheimers about a month or do ago!
    xx

    Sending my condolences to you all, it must have taken all your mum's strength in those last difficult days to get what she wanted for your grandma, and she will need all the support and love and understanding you can give her now - it's so hard to lose your mum. Big hugs to you all and strength for the coming days. xx

    So sorry for your loss Rchl89
    Your grandmother must have been quite some woman to have produced such a wonderful daughter and caring grandchild - I hope it remains a comfort to you that her end was peaceful

    I'm glad you'll come back and post again, but sad to read of your other grandmother's diagnosis - turbulent times for your family

    Very best wishes
