    Sadly Mum passed away last Wednesday. I haven't posted for a while but thought I'd let you know as some of the regular posters will know my story from the beginning. The night nurse saw Mum at 6.30am, put her leg back into bed (she always hung one leg out), and asked if she wanted a drink and Mum said no, and she then went back to sleep. When they checked on her at 7am she had passed away. They are having an inquest.

    I'm more fortunate than most as at least Mum still knew who I was even though she'd forgotten everything else. Mum was never an easy person, but the strange thing is a few days before she died she said to me, quite out of the blue, Susan, I love you very much. It really choked me up because its the first time in my life she's ever told me as she was never a demonstrative person.

    Anyway, my blessings on all you carers, I know what a difficult job you have. Now so much to do to organise Mum's funeral.

    Hugs to everyone,

    my condolences on your mum's passing
    how wonderful for you both that she said to you 'I love you very much', I guess somehow she realised you needed to know and she needed to tell you

    Sue, I'm so sad to read of your Mum's passing. I am, however, so pleased that she was peaceful ( apart from her leg! My Mum used to have both legs out with her knee crossed, swinging the spare foot :D). It is a lovely memory to have, because it brings a smile.....and yes she loved you too!.

    Yes, I remember your story. So many difficult times and struggles for you both. I'm glad that your mum passed away quietly in her sleep - a peaceful end at last.
    Send me a PM when you feel up to it.
    Take care my lovely - one step at a time, no stressing yourself, you hear?
