iv never really posted much but i did used to come on and have a read through every now and then.

my husbands grandmother who we used to care for before going into a home, died last night in her sleep. she had been suffering terribly to the point i had to demand the staff did something. im glad i did because she was then made more comfortable and moved to a different part of the home and she had 1 to 1 care virtualy until she died.

im totaly heart broken but trying to keep most of it hidden because at the moment my husband needs me whos taking it very hard.
i lost my own nan 3 years ago to alzheimers and i lost my other nan this year in january to septiceima which i took very hard.

i knew this time was coming for winnie as i no how weak she was.

just wanted to say thank you to everyone on here , you are all amazing in how you carry on caring for others.

this place has been a bit of sanity for me, and talking to a lady at my local branch via email has been a huge help.

im hoping to go on and do some voluntary work when iv had a bit of time.

im 34 with 3 children to look after but im hoping somewhere inbetween being a mum i can help give help else where.

lots of love xxxxx

In Sympathy

Just sending a warm ((hug)) as there are really no words that can help so soon after the loss of someone who obviously meant so much.

Take comfort in the knowledge that Winnie's trials & tribulations are now over. She will suffer no longer. I'm sure she knew that she was well loved right to the end.

I now you feel that you must keep strong to support your husband at the moment but please don't forget that you also need to allow yourself to grieve. Crying together can sometimes help both partners come to terms with loss.

Take care of each other & remember you have friends here whenever you need us.
