    Hi everyone,

    Thank you all so much for your wonderful messages

    I think I'm in shock at the moment, as I haven't really been able to cry since yesterday morning- I know that's 'normal, but it feels very weird.

    Now to start all of the practical things- the bit I've been dreading for a long time.

    One nice thing happened on Saturday, as I was sorting out Gran's room- she had a wind-up musical merry-go-round and it went off all by itself for a good 3-4 minutes. I've never had anything like that happen before and I really do feel like it was Gran saying goodbye to me. It's filled my heart with peace.

    Sending so much love to you all xxx

    Hi Chrissie

    The musical merry-go-round sounds lovely and it's wonderful that the music gave you some comfort and peace of mind.

    You were your Gran's angel, taking care of her and looking out for her. She will always live on in your heart and memories.

    Your Gran would want reminders and memories of her to be of comfort to you. It sounds like the music was playing at a very appropriate time and it gave you the peace of mind that your Gran would always want you to have.

    You are bound to be in shock for a while. Cry when you need to cry but if you don't feel like crying, then that is OK too. Grief is not easy to deal with and it puts us through many different emotions. You will always miss your Gran but I hope the sad feelings will be eased by memories of all the happy years you shared with your Gran.

    Please give yourself plenty of time to rest and to come terms with your Gran's passing. Your lovely Gran is resting in peace now x

    I hope you have family and friends who will offer you some practical help and emotional support.

    Take care
    Love,
    Kayleigh x

    Thank you It really does mean so much to me to read your comments.

    I am now getting the 'if there's anything I can do to help' comments from the family members- this isn't a time for me to be angry, but I am stubbornly saying 'no, thank you' to all of them. If they wanted to help, they should have helped all the way through this horrid disease- I know you guys will understand what I'm about to say. This bit is the 'easy' bit- the hard bit was trying to think of ideas to make Gran comfortable and being there when she was sent to hospital with a very bad chest infection or taking her to the doctors in a wheelchair and trying to navigate the uneven walkways to avoid her foot sliding off the foot rests. Help with any of those things would have been amazing.
    I have abided by all of the plans that Gran wanted to have for her funeral and I won't let any 'helicopter' family members take away the final thing I can do for her.
    Having said that, I am saying to the family that, if they have any specific (additional) ideas for the funeral, they are more than welcome to share them with me.
    Thank you again, my MND family <3 xx
