Following on from the conversation i had with my mum on sunday, when she asked me if she was coming home to die.

We brought her home from the hospital on Tuesday. She died this morning, with my dad, sister and brother all sitting with her.

She was diagnosed with lung cancer in August last year.

It was the most surreal experience i have ever had. It was so peaceful. she was unsettled until my sister arrived, then seemed to go to sleep. she took her last breath at 10.15am.

My condolences, Tots.
I hope in time to come you can take comfort from the fact she died peacefully and with her family around her.

So Sorry, but as time passes you will have that memory that she died with her loving family and I think that helps.

tots2ten. So sorry for you all. But also pleased in some way for you all that she was where she wanted to be, with her family round her. And to be honest, her being at home where she wanted is down to you so take comfort in the fact that you did everything you could, xxx

How are the DC's? A especially as I think she knew something was up. No fooling that one.

So sorry. It was peaceful, she wanted you all there. Treat yourself and yours gently, you will need to grieve.
