Oh my can you believe how similar it’s very spooky , in a way it’s reassuring that I’m not alone . Dare I ask where you are in case we are closer than we know . Keep on the positive road and at least for now take comfort in that they are safe , settled and comfortable xxMum is 86 to! this is so spooky lol so similar. Mum also had eyes closed all time but they are open more and Im getting the odd word from her often garbeled but its sound. But the other day I ask her to remember I love her and there was a clear yes. Unbeliveable. Mums appertite is good though pureed .
It is baby steps but most definitely her quality of life will have improved and I am glad you are starting to feel less guilt enjoying your life again. Big big hugs x
