My saying that I find it too upsetting to see my mother as she becomes more and more unwell is having severe consequences. One family member sent me a loving message saying that, whilst my decision wouldn't be hers, she totally understands. Another close relation, however, is totally blanking me, I can almost feel the disapproval coming off them in waves, and that I find really hard. I know another close relative, whilst they haven't said anything yet, will most likely have plenty to say in due course, and none of it will be good - and they do it on social media, unfortunately.
As I said before, it's my decision to make and I have to live with that for the rest of my life. We all cope with hard things in different ways.
Spending the morning at the hospital supporting husband - he's having urine flow tests today and will need to be there for a couple of hours.
