Some of you might remember me posting that my Mum was terminally ill. Her illness has progressed a lot faster than we anticipated and she is going into our local Hospice tomorrow morning.:sad1: She is unlikely to come home ever again and we have been told that she is very close to the end.

She is fully aware of what is happening, which in many ways makes it more distressing for everyone. She is uncomfortable, but thankfully not in any pain at the moment.

After losing my Dad in 2010, I can't quite believe I am now facing losing my Mum too.

We lost my husbands father a month or so ago and it was a blessing that he was unaware to what was going on, so this must be so hard for you all

Julliette I can sympathise with your news.
Diane'e uncle who is remembering his wife's death 1 year ago has been given the news that he has terminal cancer.
We visited him before travelling to WDW in hospital when the prognosis was better.

His pride and attitude are really humbling.
Nevertheless it is sad to see a loved one in this way.

Remember all the good times.

I'm so sorry to hear your news Juliette and I understand how heartbroken you must be feeling. I lost my Mum in May 1998 and my Dad Feb 1999.

It gave my Mum great comfort having her grandchildren and family around her.

Love to you and all your family :grouphug:

I'm so sorry to hear about your mum. I totally understand what you are going through. I lost my mum to cancer in 2004, and now my best friend has been diagnosed with the same terminal cancer.

What I would say is that hospice staff are so amazing and supportive. They really helped my family and I get through things.

My thoughts are with your mum, family and you. :hug:

Thank you for all of the supportive messages.

My Mum is going downhill very rapidly and we have been told to make the most of the remaining time we have left. I am staying with her tonight in the Hospice. It is undoubtedly the best place for her and the care is outstanding. I am on auto-pilot at the moment and am taking each hour as it comes.

You brave lady! So strong for your Mum, she'll be very proud of you.

I was 11 when my dad died. That was 21 years ago this October. Still think about him every single day. And, incredibly, our last family holiday was to wdw. Glad I have some memories.

Thoughts are genuinely with you.

Still think about him every single day.

I lost my Dad eight years ago this week and there's not a day goes by when I don't think of him either.

I'm glad your Mum is getting such good care, Juliette, stay strong and take care of yourself. :hug:

Thank you for the lovely messages - they are a real help.

The nurses thought my Mum was dying this morning and I held her hand and watched her laboured breathing...but she's a bloody-minded, tough old bird and she's still hanging on. The Dr seemed to think she will still be here for a short while so I am taking a break from the Hospice. Will be back for the night-shift around 10pm and I am hoping that she has a more peaceful night than last night. As she isn't in pain, all I'm hoping is that she isn't afraid.

My Mum died peacefully this morning. I had stayed all night with her and after being sedated she had had a quiet night. I was in the room, when something made me look across at her and I realised she wasn't breathing regularly. She slipped away silently and without a struggle. I feel confident that she had no pain or fear. I will miss her in every way and for ever more.

Thanks to everyone for the messages. I am OK at the moment and am keeping busy organising the funeral etc. My Mum was not a typical 74 year old. She was a huge Buffy fan (odd I know) and loved this song, which was featured in the series:

I know it's not the typical funeral song, but we are thinking of including it in the service. She listened to this song when my Dad died too :(

At your mums funeral i think you should play what is relevant to her, no matter what it is.At my friends funeral a few weeks ago they played Shine by Take That, because it meant something to her.
