An Update

Hello...

 Thank you for all your lovely comments on yesterday's post ... You may have realised that it was a scheduled post with so much going on right now

I'm so sad to say that my much adored Aunt passed away on Saturday afternoon....

I hadn't imagined that I would ever get there, the 4 hour journey alone being so difficult and on top of that I have a respiratory infection and hospitals don't like you coming to visit in that condition.
But with the help of my lovely husband and the hospital staff moving her to a private room, I did make it.... 
Reluctantly, I knew it was time let her go and I knew she was waiting for me to tell her that it was ok. Within a few hours of my arrival, she drifted peacefully away....

I'm so grateful for the care given by the doctors and nursing staff who rang me every single day and evening... And I will be eternally in the debt of 2 very special young women, friends of my Aunt and who, despite having their own families and jobs to go to, worked out a system to be at her side day and night for 3 days ... How does one repay such a kindness?

Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and your prayers.. It really does mean a lot

Hi Ros,

I tried leaving a message on the 13th but Blogger wasn't letting me for some reason. I was so sorry to hear about your beloved Aunt's passing, but it was great you were able to get to be with her one last time. I hope the memory of all the happy times you spent together will bring comfort in the weeks ahead. I hope you are taking care of yourself and that your new GP is getting to grips with your treatment.
Hugs

I've only just got round to catching up on your blog, Ros, so my condolences are somewhat belated, but heartfelt just the same. How great that your aunt was able to hold on till you got there - it must have been a great comfort to her to have you by her side in her final moments. No doubt you have a treasure-trove of happy shared memories to sustain you. Take care x
