Hi all, I am typing this as I sit by my Mum's side in hospital. Dad was advised to call my brothers & I in yesterday morning in the early hours & we have all been here since. Mum is very peaceful due to medication & we have had time to tell her all we want to, I've had some lovely chats (all one-sided) and we are now just waiting for the inevitable. Mum had a chest x-ray for a pain in her side 6 months & 3 days ago. At that point she was a healthy, active & vibrant 67 year old. None of us can get our heads around the speed with which this disease has destroyed her body. We know her spirit remains strong & she is still the same amazingly special wife, mum & nana, in time we will put aside the memories of the last 6 months of hell & only have the beautiful memories. I am sorry to have to put this blog on but know I need to share this. My brothers & I will stay strong for our dad & own families because that is what mum would want us to do. We are all heartbroken but feel privileged to have had her in our lives. Love Alli x
