    No, it's isn't awful for you to hope William won't fight so hard. It's a hard, hard thing to watch and I know you simply want it to be peaceful for William. Thinking of you.

    You want the best for William, you always have and this is another way of trying for that best by putting the need for quality over quantity. Not easy, supportive hugs for you xx

    My cognitive function tests are over. My head is splitting! But again, my confidence has been boosted - did extremely well! :)

    Very glad to hear your test results were top-notch, though!

    Thanks all. I was going to go back in this evening - but I found I was so tired after the tests, I just have done nothing! I'm due to work in the morning, and will go after that, unless I hear from the nursing home in the meantime.

    Lady A, you must try to pace yourself so I'm relieved to hear that you are doing just that:) The NH will know to phone you if you are needed. Try to have an early night?

    Love

    Hoping you find William peaceful and comfortable. Difficult emotions, but we know that you want the best for William and do not want him to endure any more suffering. Take care..

    He is peaceful. He is comfortable. But the nursing director had left word to send me up to her when I arrived for a chat. She said she thinks William is just starting to slip away. He has that faraway look. And he isn't "ill " - no infection or anything like that. Just terribly weak, and looks like he's ready to go. I honestly hope it doesn't go on for weeks.
