I saw your post about your mother's condition and I thought I would just connect to say how sorry I am and how hard it must be for you. However, as you say, she is comfortable and at peace and is obviously ready to pass on when the time is right. It is always harder for those left behind to let go...but we have to. From your past posts, it seems she actually had a fairly good quality of life for some time after diagnosis, helped by the love and support of her family. All the best to you, Ktee as you prepare for what is to come. I will be thinking about you.

Alison, I just got home from the nursing home and cried all the way. I find I want to stop with her and hold her hand and stuff. Anyway, I logged onto the boards and first thing i saw was your post. thank you for your kind words..... i was in need of them tonight.
A quick reply to let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you, your husband, and especially mum. Please reach out if you need encouragement. We are all in this one way or another, and would be happy to provide. Our love, be strong.
