It's a bit of a shock as she was in the lounge on Sunday, chesty yesterday and given antibiotics, the gp called to check on her this afternoon but the home had already called the paramedics who decided she might benefit from going to hospital as she had been doing so well. She was unconscious by the time she got there.

Luckily, both my brothers and I were there with her and the doctors and nurses were brilliant both with mum and with us

Sincere condolences kitty it is always a shock when it happens even when expected. I do hope you will be content knowing you did your very best for her. I never felt guilty that I couldn't grieve. I hope you will feel the same.

I know she had been giving you all, shall we say, the runaround for over a year, but nevertheless it must be a shock, as your mum is your mum.
What a doughty lady she must have been and I send my condolences to you and ALL your family. flowers
