sorry people but I have not been on here much as I have been at my Mum’s for almost 2 1/2 weeks with being home for 3 days in between. I came home today for a few days. Well Mum is in good spirits and has been happy laughing and joking with us and she is building up with more fluid but so far it is not painful. I have had lots of quality time with her besides helping change wash and things like that I have been massaging her legs every night to help with the muscle wastage pain and once I am finished I have climbed into to be with me Mum for snuggle time and we hold hands and talk and watch TV. These are my precious moments for me to always have. When ever I have stayed in the past before Mum got sick I would often climb into Mum’s bed and sleep with her but now these moments mean more to me than ever. Once she gets bad I will not be on for a while I will than be moving in to Mum’s to be with her to the end and at this point unless she changes her mind I will be in her room as when her time comes I do not want her to be alone and I also do not want my Daughter to be the one the finds her once her time has come as I feel this is not a memory for her to have to live the rest of her life with….but for now every thing is going well and we know it can change quickly but we are enjoying things with Mum while we can. We had my Grandaughter’s 13th birthday in Mum’s room which was Tilly’s choice so Mum was part of the whole party and we all had fun. We are going to see about a friend whom does family sittings and see if we can get some family photo’s with Mum while she still looks and feels good so we have to round up my kids and all the grand kids and we will get some of all of the tribe. Life is a good as it can be for now
