    My Mum (85) has Alzheimer's and has a nasty chest infection, she is being treated with oral antibiotics and other drugs inc. morphine to make her comfortable. I live 250 miles away and due to medication for various illnesses I cannot drive. I came back from visiting her fir 7 days only a week ago and said my own private goodbye as I honestly believe this is the end, which has been confirmed by the doctor. Am I right in thinking it would be better to save my energy for m Dad when the inevitable happens? He is 86 and they have been married for 62 years

    Hello Frufru
    welcome to TP, I'm so sorry you had to find the forum under such difficult circumstances - you will find here a wealth of sympathy and experience and a 'listening ear'.
    You know your own family best, follow your instincts, and take care of your own health, you will need your strength in the days to come.
    I wish peace for your mum and comfort for you and your dad.
