  • Hi Shaun,

    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.....all I can say is spend as much time

    as you possibly can with your mum...which I'm sure you have been doing. I know

    how hard it is for you and your family at this time and wish I could do something to

    help you with the pain you are feeling.

    My Best Wishes

  • Mums are so precious. I'm in tears of relief knowing she is comfy and cared for and most importantly loved x

  • Lovely to hear that your Mum has some peace and good care at last, it's a shame she had to go through what she did before getting to this, unfortunately the is the nature of our health service these days. I'm sure her last days will be made much more tolerable now.

    My thought are with you both.


  • once again the generosity and kindness of you people has amazed me,the words you send do actually help,have come to terms with losing her now,so if she can be peaceful happy and calm its easier,but not easy,they asked her if she wanted to go home at any stage,"no way she said,you`d be mad to leave a place like this"...will try to keep posting,thanks to everyone xx

  • Hi Shaun,

    I am so pleased that she is now being treated with the dignity she so richly deserves I send you all my best wishes and prayers love x G x

  • Hello again Shaun,

    I'm so pleased for your and you beloved Mom that she is in such a lovely place and that it has helped you come to terms with what is to come. My thoughts are with you all. Thank you, also, for sharing with us how the well the Hospice is caring for her and how much happier it has made her. I'm sure It can only help many of us us all feel a bit braver about what may be coming to some of us.

    Hope your wrist is getting better. Take care of yourself, Love Solange

  • Hi shaun

    I am a mum of 3 and my eldest is 23 old boy. I have been reading your posts and have cried each time. To have a son like you is every mums pride and i know if you were my son i would feel absolutely so cared for now. Life and death is not in our hands but our nearesst and dearest make this time so special. Cherish every moment with her and dont dwell on what has happened. You need to capture your memories of your mum. You are an i.spiration to all sons out there take care lots of hugs xxxxx

  • Hello Shaun ..

    I was so pleased to hear mum has at last arrived at somewhere where she can have the peace and gentle nursing that she so richly deserves and that you too have somewhere calm to surround mum with your love .Each and every moment of the day counts ..

    Thinking about you and your family x

    Love Jan xxx

  • Hi Shaun

    I am so pleased your Mum is getting the care and comfort she needs now. As I said in a previous message, being with someone through their final days is painful but also a privilege. Your Mum sounds a wonderful woman and she obviously has a wonderful caring son. Stay strong.

    Love Wendy xx
