  • I am so sorry that you and your Mum are in this position Tammy but I know other ladies who have said hospice care is wonderful.

    All of us hope to be without pain and sickness so let's hope they can do that for her. Don't forget that you need support too xx Lyndy

  • So sorry for your news. I hope you have the support and friends around you that you need. My mum passed from oc and the best thing I can suggest is to just spend as much time with her as you can. It is always a difficult time seeing someone you love go through all this. My heart goes out to you. I send love and wish you all the best. xx

  • I'm sorry I have no words of advice just sending you lots of love and prays x

  • Sending love and best wishes.

  • Thank y'all I sure need all y'all's prayers that will help for sure I just wish I knew the signs of her getting closer go going so il know what to expect I'd love to help anyone with Thier questions but I don't know what to look for we are a close but I'm the one that gave up everything to move in here to help my mama with my daddy and to turn around and having to lose her it's just two much she is my everything but Anyone that can help me with what to expect I sure would appreciate it

  • Do sad for you. My mom is in a similar situation. All I can say is, make the best of your time with her. I am making the best of every moment. I take her for walks almost daily. Sit in at whatever local cafes have an eatery where I could push her wheelchair in to. I am usually hoping the restaurant owners do not say, we can't host you " as the wheelchair is in their way. They are always helpful though. I take as many photos as possible and I just simply love her as much as I can. She will need your support. Take every day one step at a time because almost every day comes a new change in her condition. Some changes slight but some changes drastic. Though I am saddened every day, though I am broken hearted every day, the sadness comes with the joy that she is here yet one more day.

  • Please take courage. She will feed off your weakness and your strength.

  • Sorry to hear that but your mama is lucky to have such a devoted daughter doing your best for her. That will help her so much x
