:( My Nan finally slipped into an eternal sleep today aged 83, suffering for 10 years. Its been a long two weeks when we decided it was time to stop the nursing home feeding her as the food was going into her lungs and there was nothing else they could do.

I feel relief in a way but obviously still shocked.

Dear Cookiedough, I'm very sorry to hear about your nan. After ten years of suffering and ten years of caring , you and your family must feel understandably numb. Much sympathy to you all, and sincere condolences. Love Deborah

Dear Cookiedough,

Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of your nan. Ten years is long enough to suffer. Her suffering is over.

Take care.

Hi Cookiedough

So sorry to hear of the death of your nan.

I'm not surprised you're feeling shocked -- no matter how long you have been expecting it, death always leaves a sense of shock and numbness.

You and your family have cared for your nan for ten years, and given her all you could. Her suffering is now over and she is at peace.

Bless you all.

Love,

Such a mixture of feelings at these times - sadness for your loss - glad for her that she is released from her burdens - relief that the long fight is finally over and many more feelings, thoughts, emotions . . . . .
My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
When you are able, take time to recover your own self.

thank you all for your kind comments, such a horrible disease. But we all feel comfort that she can now rest peacefully. Yet anger that such a wonderful woman had to suffer for so long
