The hospital wanted to speak to me today, mum continues to deteriorate, despite being over flu, and sleeps continuously, with a sort of humming snoring, she still has a rattley chest, and won't eat or drink. I haven't any family close by but my friends are great and supportive. But I still feel very alone in this. I just don't know what to expect or how long this phase will last. She was fully mobile a fortnight ago. I guess that's a blessing in a way.
