Thank you all so much for all your kind comments, 

MIL has finally been moved to the hospice,

we have been to visit her and she looks so much 

more comfortable already. We are looking at a 

timescale of day's only, but the change in her 

treatment has been incredible, she has pain relief

via a pump, the right amount of pillows, an extra 

blanket on her cold feet & unlimited ice cream as 

this is all she can eat now.

I had a bowl of soup at 10:30 yesterday morning & 

then nothing else 7:30, we spent a couple of hours 

 with MIL, an hour with the staff who are speaking 

to FIL and encouraging him to visit, they have 

assured him that MIL needs him and they have 

offered BIL2 counselling,  hubby & I will 

take him to visit at the weekend.

We drove home through a downpour of biblical 

proportions, as soon as I'd dropped hubby home I 

had to go back out to collect neighbour and drive 

her to the vets to collect her dog, this took just 

over 2 hours, I suppose as the vet is charging 

£2490.64 she thought she'd best make the 

appointment last as long as possible.

And isn't it great that your MIL will get wonderful loving care and you will all get great support without having to give the finance a second thought. I think I'll slip a little something into our local hospice collecting tin today while I am out as a little prayer for her.

I would assume hospice in the U.K. is similar to here in the US. They are a God sent,but they put BIL in his place. They will even offer consulting after. Good luck and I am glad your MIL is getting the best care she can. Cheryl

From Margie in Toronto - so pleased to hear this - it must be such a relief to you all. A Hospice is truly a Godsend and the people who work in them are true angels. Good luck to you all.
