    It's 330 in the morning and I am here just waiting for the end. The doctor came earlier and gave pain and agitation injections but these have worn off so the nurse is on her way to do it all again. Syringe driver being fitted tomorrow. We all feel we are nearing the end of our painful and very sad journey together.

    Thinking of you and wishing you strength to bear this painful time. Hope the nurse has been and that your mum is now peaceful.

    Wishing you both peace and freedom soon from all that her dementia has made you endure. Take care.

    Well we are still here watching and waiting. The syringe driver is now in place so no more need to keep calling out nurses through the night. Mum is unconscious and very peaceful. She will go when she is ready and all we can do is be here . It's a strange range of emotions , really want it to be over, but terrified that when the end finally comes my journey with mum and my purpose for the last year will be done. So a big part of me is just not ready ......
