Well she held on for a total of 32 days. My MIL passed away at 5:50 this morning. She went quietly and was in no pain. She is in God's hands now and I'm sure she is back to her old self, talking up a storm, dancing with her DH and seeing all the people who passed before her that she loved so much. We will miss our MeMa, but we find some comfort in that she is no longer suffering with Dementia. What a horrible disease.
My saga continues as my mother also has moderate symtoms of Dementia. I am the only one of her 4 children that is willing to care for her. At least I won't have that on my conscience when she's gone.
