My mother recognized me - every day. She just didn't remeber I'd seen her the day before.
Some days she was alert enough to crack jokes (very slured speach), some days she would just drool. It got progessivly worse while i was there.
She died when my flight was touching down at heathrow.
I'm very glad i was able to see her before the end.
She died peacefully and quietly in her sleep.
