    Dear Linda, so sorry to read this thread and to hear about your sad loss. You did your very best for your mum, and no one can ask for more. Your mum was well-loved and well-looked after by you. I hope that your sorrows lessen with time and with the realisation that your mum was lucky to have your love. Kind regards and deep sympathy, Deborah

    Thankyou for all your messages. Its mums funeral today and thank god the sun is shining. It has been a strange week I am so used to visiting mum at least 3 times a week at the home and I feel like I have been made redundant. Everytime the phone rings I still think its going to be the home telling me mum wants to have a chat. I haven't been as upset as I thought I would be but I think thats because I know mum is at peace no more pain and anxiety. Her grandsons who visited her every week are missing her terribly thay have a little speech to say at the funeral. Lets hope the sun stays out :)

    i feel you have made the right decision. of course it was with a heavy heart. my mum has alzheimers and is in a nursing home very frail following a chest and urine infection. I feel very sad and know that i may also be facing the same situation as you. my heart is heavy too. i keep wishing hoping and praying for mum to recover but deep down i know that will not happen.
    my prayers and thoughts are with you.

    I am thinking of you at this sad time as I am in a similar situation as you. My Granad died yesterday as he too had a chest infection. He has been on morpine for approximately a week.

    Sending you my best wishes and condolences.

    Hi Andrea

    Welcome to TP. I'm sorry that your mum is so ill. At least you are prepared, fearing the worst while hoping for the best.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your mum.

    Love,
