Nearing the end

Mum is nearing the end of her life and being rid of this horrid disease. Mum was her normal self Monday, Tuesday felt abit off, DR came out Wednesday and said he thought she had pneumonia and urine infection. He spoke to Mum about hospital admission Mum always said no more treatment and she was awake enough to tel the DR no. DR told Mum and us that it is highly unlikely that she will survive this infection. I am sat writing this at side of mums bed she is now in her last few hours she is really peaceful and it has been such a nice ending ido not mean to sound like I don’t care cause i do, I’m heartbroken but I’m also so relieved that Mum is finally going to be rid of PSP and at peace. 💔💔💔

Thinking of you. These precious moments together will be so cherished.

Of course you care and if there is a good way to leave this earth with these awful conditions, this will be the way. I can only hope the same for my Mum when that time comes. Your Mum has been able to have control of her wishes at the end and make that decision.

Massive hugs

I echo Spiralsparkle’s words Richmond1.

When the time comes I think it will help you knowing it was your mum’s decision and I’m sure it is much better for her knowing she is still in some control at the end as she has probably had very little over the last few years.

I pray that you all know peace at this sad time.

Exactly how it was with Chris. It is a comfort to me to know that he was able to make his own decision. A peaceful ending is the best outcome.

I'm totally with you on the emotions you are experiencing, she sounds that she is ready to face the end, it is her choosing that no other treatment is give. This is exactly what my husband has said is to happen and I fully support him. It is horrible to witness this disease taking everything away from them bit by bit. I think that is what I would want if I was in this position.

Sending my love and support.

Heart breaking it is but there is a sense of relief. I lost my wife last Thursday and whilst I am devastated, I have found an inner peace knowing she is no longer suffering. Good bye PSP and good riddance. God Bless you and your Mum.
