Mum lost her courageous battle today. She completely stopped eating, drinking and swallowing 2 days ago and every thing started to stiffen up. Today her breathing changed and my sister and I sat with her until she went so she was not alone and until it was a relief to know her struggle was over.Mum was only diagnosed a year ago but was fully middle stage by then and we were able to track back that she had started to show signs at least 5 years before that. It explained a lot of things. In the end the repeated UTIs dropped her down to a frail shadow of herself and she had nothing left to give. Mum never complained and tried hard to keep going. She was a real trooper and we will miss her very dearly. My thoughts are with those still fighting and trying to get the care and recognition you deserve. We will continue to support the PSPA.
