    Oh dream, that is so sad. Cancer and AD is the cruellest combination, and it must be so hard for you to see your mum suffer.

    I hope you and your sisters are giving each other support, and also helping your dad. You are so lucky to have each other.

    I wish you all the strength to get you through this terrible time. you'll all be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love,

    Hello Dream

    Is there no help to be had from the Hospice movement for your mother`s pain. They are supposed to have a wonderful reputation for helping to control it.

    Even if your mother is not yet ready to be admitted to a hospice, I`d be tempted to phone one and see if they have any advice.

    Such terrible pain with Alzheimers is unthinkable.

    Love xx
