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.

And you can be so proud of yourself...I know what a horrid thing dementia can be..My Mom had the beginnings of it and I know part of it was missing my father so very much. She made it 4 years after losing him then it started...To this day I still ache for the both of them and miss them so very much. But I will never be sorry that I took care of the two of them. Yes it was hard, but the rewards now are peace of mind and knowing that one day we will all be together again. You make me proud to know you..Bless you for what you do.

My thoughts and prayers are with you goomk. I know of what you speak with the dementia. My mom has it and is in an assisted living as it's not possible to take care of her here. She's also wheelchair bound. I am also one of four kids that do it all for her. It's hard but the rewards are tenfold in what you are doing.
Know that you are a special person and you and your family are in my thoughts! God bless you.
