Yearly update lol

Sorry I haven't logged in for a long time, but you know - this illness!

My mum has been in hospital and they told me that she has between 3-6 months left to live, so I have had to put a DNR (do not resuscitate) in place and her GP has prescribed morphine ready for when it is time for her to go, to make her passage into the next adventure of life pain-free and peaceful... Her care home has the medicine ready and a district nurse will come if the GP deems that she is coming to her final days and give her the morphine on a daily basis to ease her pain, as she now has a failing heart, lungs and kidneys, all due to the Alzheimer's Disease.

These next few months are going to be as stressful as the last few years have been with her and also coping with my diagnosis over the last 7 years with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease haven't made it any easier.

Eh ho - it never rains etc... (although it's hammering it down as I write this lol)
