sad news

Hi All

I have sad news, my mum passed on Sunday, it was very peaceful.  I had made a promise to my mum that I would always nurse her and would never let her go into a nursing home or die in hospital and I am very pleased that I was able to fulfill my promise.

It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but I am glad as I was able to spend time with my mum on my own, we had some lovely chats and shared memories, 

I was with her when she took her last breath, I held her hand as she went to her resting place.

Her funeral is next Thursday, we wanted it before Christmas, in the new year I and my dad will clear and sort things, but for now that is not important.

I am now home and to be honest I am glad, I do not know how I did it, I just told my body that I would ignore my illness and I will pick it up later, this time is for my mum and my problems do not exist. I spent last night in a bed the first time in over a week, and I slept, at one time I had been awake for over 36hrs, I am now very tired and have a lot of pain, I knew I would suffer for it. So I am going to take it very easy and rest and hope it will not take my body long to recover.

Thank you all for all your kind words and thought you have sent me
