A sad update.

Recommended Posts

I was due to come back to this forum after illness kept me away near the end of last year. Unfortunately, this month has been taken up with my mum being ill, hospitalised and finally passing away yesterday morning.

 

I will be back but obviously have so much to do in such a short time.

 

She had dementia, COPD, heart failure and after getting a urine infection which turned to sepsis and a bout of anemia which required 1 units of blood, they found a mass on her left kidney. Probably cancerous but not sure.

 

I am incredibly sad but strangely calm and content because although she went peacefully, she had had a lot of pain in her last week.

 

I will come back and join you all, but give me a little time x

That's really sad Pixie Dust.

I am so sorry that you have lost your Mum.

It sounds like she was very poorly towards the end and is now no longer in any pain.

Remember that although your Mum has been taken, no one can ever take the lifetime of lovely memories that you will have made together.

 

Take care Pixie Dust, you know we are all here for you xxx

Pixiedust I'm so sorry to hear of your loss and though I'm fortunate enough not to have lost a parent I understand a little of what you're going through as my grandad passed the same way. My thoughts are with you and I look forward to your return x
