View Full Version : Heaven gains another angel

Today, 5 months after diagnosis, my amazing uncle passed away.

He fought so hard at the end and was trying so hard to hang on but this terrible disease robbed him of everything but his sense of humour and his smile - he was even smiling at the end. 6 months ago he was independent, walking to the shops for the paper every day. At the end of July he developed a chest infection that he could not shake off. It took his mobility and in the end it took his life as well.

Here's to hoping that there is soon a treatment and cure so no-one else has to suffer the way my uncle did.

RIP xx

Thank you to everyone for your lovely comments.

Although it is a really sad time in our lives, we are comforted by the fact that he did not suffer for long. He was only diagnosed in April and with this chest infection he only spent 5 days in hospital at the end. He was initially admitted onto a neuro ward before being transferred to a critical care ward where he sadly passed away. He was surrounded by family and friends at the end, it was calm and peaceful and we know he is looking down on us laughing as we remember the good times.

To everyone who commented - thank you.

To anyone who is experiencing this horrible disease - I hope you find the comfort in family and friends that my uncle did, and that you are supported by a fantastic hospital as we were.

J355 xx
