    Not about dogs but seeing as this is the section I post in most I thought I'd tell you guys my sad news. Some of you may know that for the last few years I have been a carer for Shirley, my oh's mam. Sadly this morning she passed away after being in hospital for almost a week. Last Wednesday teatime she choked on her dinner and I found her lifeless in her living room. My oh managed to resuscitate her while we waited for the ambulance but she never regained conscious. The drs said it was most likely that with the lack of oxygen she had suffered brain damage and combined with her advanced Alzheimer's her quality of life would've been zero if she had survived. They stopped all treatment Thursday night night and bless her she managed to hang on until last night.

    RIP Shirley, my little crazylady. You drove me insane but you've left a massive gap in my life. Who will keep me on my toes now? :(

    Really sorry to hear this. You will miss her greatly but consider that she is in a better place now. Alzheimers is a cruel illness.
