I sat with MIL this morning as she made the decision to stop treatment and plan for terminal care. It wasn’t a hard decision … these last 10 weeks have been exhausting and she simply wants either to feel better or stop. Since there’s no guarantee of the first option, she has bravely chosen the second. In an email to prayer partners DH wrote, ‘My mother has chosen … to go home to the Lord, and we are at peace with this decision. We don’t know how long it will be, but it will be only a matter of weeks.’

So the holiday is cancelled and our diaries are, well,  not exactly cleared but decluttered … so that we have the time to be with MIL, as well as to deal with the practicalities of her flat etc. I’m blogging this here since CMs blogs aren’t available just now …
