She had been in hospital for over 5 weeks, battling infection after infection as best her frail old body could fight.

How sad for you MissAdventure. No matter how old we may be, the loss of a parent is so hard. Five weeks is a long time and hopefully you were able to say goodbye. At least she's out of her pain now flowers
