Well things have progressed so much in the last week. Mum has been in a coma like state for 8 days now. No fluid for 6 days and no food for 10 days. We were called in by the home on Friday as mum’s breathing had changed and they thought the end was near. It’s now Sunday, and I’ve only left her to go home and sleep. Other than that my brother and I have been at her side. Mum has very heavy breathing and a gurling in her throat. It’s so awful sitting here watching her struggle for breath, but she does not seem to be giving up. My poor mum. What an awful end to her life.
