My mum just came up and told me my Grandma has died this evening. She was suffering from from Motor Neurone Disease (what stephen hawking has)which basically kills you off slowly.

It started about Feb 06 when she started to lose the use of her hands and both hands were lost by oct last year. Her legs started to go at the start of this year then we built on extension onto our house so we could care for her as she kept falling down the stairs.
She was wheelchair bound around May-June as she couldn't walk anymore. She was losing her speech as well by this time and it got harder for me and my family to understand what she was actually saying which gave us some laughs.

Less than a week ago my mum told me she had an appointment at the hospital for tests on her breathing as she was having problems. I knew then the end was near without anyone saying anything. She was making like grunts for breathing noises and sort of whimpering noises.
They started to give her a sedative early morning yesterday (25th, 26th here now) to ease the pain for her. I noticed about 8pm she had stopped making any noise, so I thought good she must be in much less pain now. Obviously so lol.

I don't feel like crying, I'm happy its over for her. She never moaned, she kept her spirits up and was always herself, it didn't make her go crazy in the head.

Thanks for reading this if you got this far.

Sorry for your loss. A friend of mine lost their auntie almost the same way, she died slowly, but she wasn't in pain. As above, be there for your parents, and most of all, be strong.

I can only say I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost one of my grandmas in a similar way back in 1995 – she died slowly and obviously in great agony. Remember to be strong and be there for your parents, and the most important thing is (what kept me going on when I lost my grandma who I loved very much): The pain and agony is over for her. She is finally free from all she's been going through.
