A 19 Year Death
As I write this my partner Harvey is with his mother waiting for her to take her last breath. We had a call from the nursing home this morning to say that she was dying.
This is the longest death I have known for she has suffered from Alzheimers for 19 years. Our daughter Charlotte who is 22 has never known her grandmother properly.
A dog would not be allowed to suffer as this woman has and the only consolation now is that she will soon be at peace.
