View Full Version : My lovely Aunt has gone

26th February 2012, 23:42
My aunt died yesterday 9 months after diagnosis and after only 3 months in care. For almost six months after being told she had bulbar onset she tried to live a normal life in her own home although she had difficulty speaking and swallowing. In October her condition deteriorated dramatically and following a fall she was admitted to hospital. She had lost a lot of weight and a peg was fitted. At the end of November she was transferred to a Nursing Home. We are stunned at just how quickly she went downhill. From a beautiful, vibrant woman to someone unable to even walk or talk, dependent on tubes, oxygen and catheter, in just a few months. We will remember her as the happy healthy woman she was, before she was taken by this horrible, cruel disease. My heart goes out to everyone diagnosed with this, and to their families, and hope that a cure is found soon.
