End of life care. That double helix of labour and love. Such utter joy.

Watching Stu and Richard care for their mother in her final days and nights has been painful and slow but her moments of lucidity have been wonderful. 5 nights so far with no food or water. But when she does come round - however briefly - it’s like her dementia has gone and the boys tell her they love her. 
That double helix of labour and love. The fatigue, boredom, and repetition followed by such utter joy.
