    Hi Diane

    I'm sorry to hear about your mum, i know the agony you are going through as its not so long since i went through the same thing. I chose to believe that my partner hung on so long in order to give me time to accept the inevitable outcome.
    At this point the suffering is more yours than your mums, and all you can do is be there for her. That might not be any comfort to you, but i do believe that she will know you are there.
    I hope you find the strength to get through this, as your mum needs you to be strong.

    Love Alex x
