So very, very hard for you. Impossible to know what to do and how to help her. Does she seem distressed, or in pain? If not then maybe she has simply had enough of the struggle?

Love and hugs

No she's not distressed just a bit breathless if she walks to the toilet but not in pain or she says she's not I'm sure I would know if the pain was bad xxx

I'm glad about that, it would be unbearable otherwise.

Hello Chezzie. It must be very hard for you at the moment. It's amazing how she even manages to get to the bathroom on such low oxygen. I am hoping you both can talk about the lovely times you've had. Hold her everyday. It will help you both. Hang in there. Thinking of you both today.

Chezzie dear, just hang in there - you are doing everything possible and, as diesel said, just love her; there truly comes a time when love is all we need.
