You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear mum. I know how hard it is to deal with when it happens so quickly, but try to take some comfort in the fact that she did not have to suffer for a very long time and died peacefully. Thinking of you.
Love & Hugs,

Dearest Rangani, I am so very sorry to read about your dear Mum. Please accept my humble condolences.
Death is nothing at all. It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.August 16, 2016 at 5:13 am #12686ranganiParticipant
My mum passed away last Friday. It was just 15 weeks from noticing initial symptoms of itching and ascites. She was 86. It was hard to go through this time, knowing it was limited, but am also so grateful that we had that time to spend with her. Thanks to our doctors and all the comments on advice on this site, we were able to deal with the situations which cropped up and her end was as peaceful as we could have hoped it to be
Thank you all of you for the comments, the advice. You were all an invaluable source of information.
I will be in time posting in the palliative care section, my experiences in the last three months in the hope that it helps someone else like the way it helped me.
If anyone out there wants to ask me any specific questions please do send me direct message and I will respond.
