    I am so sorry for you watching this cruel disease. My mum is also at the end stage and to watch her suffering and having regular chest infections, antibiotics all the time plus numerous other medication is so hard. Just do not want to see her suffer. My thoughts are with you as I understand how hard this journey is. Take care xx

    Thank you all for your words of support, David's struggle is over. He died very peacefully on Tuesday morning at 12.10. I was with him talking to him right to the end and have been in turmoil since and forgot to come here to share with you my loyal friends. My thoughts are now with all of you who are still dealing with this disease, take care and keep strong
