Hi I haven't posted for a long time as nothing has changed since my mother was admitted to her care home. Now she doesn't recognise me and is mainly asleep. The GP rang me to say her stomach was swollen and her breathing was not good. He is pretty sure she now has cancer (she is 87). Dementia is such a cruel disease and I hoped she would slip away peacefully I still hope she does before the cancer causes her any pain. She is not in any discomfort apart from her breathing and is eating well so I hope she goes in her sleep.
