Visited Mam today. After weeks of being totally confused and going days without much sleep or food, mam is now sleeping 12 hours+ a night and eating all her meals. For the first time in ages she is able to hold her head upright, and is a lot more aware of what's going on. Isn't it ironic, therefore, that as Mam has become a bit more talkative over the last couple of days, she has also become much more depressed and upset! She is now saying she will never forgive me and my sister for putting her in a home, is talking about dying very soon and she wishes it was all over. Mam is physically extremely weak and says she is very tired. She just wants to sleep all the time. Perhaps she is right and the end is quite close now.
