It took a long while to decide whether to post about my friend but I am glad I did. Everyday sees another change, skin colour, whites of the eye no longer white, more breathlessness, general weakness.
As it is the weekend, we had no plans to visit and still won't as both children are now attending to their parent. Despite saying that, both the doctor and district nurse have just left and my friend is now immobile - unexpected at this stage by everyone.
What can you do other than phone up, let them know if they need help to call and tell them you are thinking of them all. Depending how things go this weekend, we will call on Monday. It is so hard isn't it, knowing if they were an animal they would be put to sleep, yet as 'dignified' humans, we don't legally allow such things.
As you can imagine, a black cloud has descended and seems intent on hovering, and I am not talking about the thunderstorms later in the day. That said, the weather may well turn out to match the mood, who said mother nature is immune to such things?
