I am so sorry for you
My dad is dying at the moment and its very difficult.
I try to think that they are not suffering anymore and always remember them as the bright light in your lifethat they were before they took ill.x

oh its hard, isnt it? So sorry Nemo

So sad for you, if you can and don't feel like going back, light a candle and think about her. She's always going to be your nan and try and remember the times when she was healthier. {sad]

It's so awful but wonder if they feel they have to hang on longer when everyone there. It's awful you just don't think you will ever watch someone die.

flossie I am sorry about your dad

my nan was like a mum to me, I have a better relationship with her than I do my mum so it is devestating that my children will never really know her

oh sweetheart

flossie64 Thu 15-Mar-07 19:46:13

My daughter keeps telling me that dad won't be lonely that her gran is on a cloud already and that she's waiting for him. ( she's only 4yrs old)
Maybe thats a way of speaking to them about it all and it might help you a bit aswell.xx

Nemo how old your DC'S ? You will have to have plenty of pictures around and talk about her often i found that helped when i lost my mum.

Nemo2007 Thu 15-Mar-07 19:48:26

my DC are 3,14mths and 2mths. DS loves nanny B to bits and knows a lot about her even thought she has lived in spain half the year for the past 6yrs. I had to tell him she was very ill and will be going to heaven soon, he said its ok because his goldfish chips is there..simplicity of kids.

Oh nemo how old is your nan?

And Flossie too

Nemo2007 Thu 15-Mar-07 20:13:57

Mercy she is 72 but was always a young 72, you would never have thought she was more than 60, then all of a sudden the cancer struck and this deterioration has taken a whole 3mths
