Last night my grandmother passed away, she had PD. A couple of weeks ago she went to the hospital because she had a bad cough, and kept throwing up. In hospital it was found that she had Pneumonia. She recovered within a week, and went home, where my mother looked after her, however on Sunday, the day I arrived she became a lot worse, she lost her speech and couldn’t open her eyes, and didn’t want to drink or eat, she also had trouble swallowing and the nasty cough came back. So we kept giving her water, until last night at 1am she passed away in her sleep.
This was all in Czech Republic and I flew back to the UK last night.
Does anyone have any advice, support or personal stories about the passing of someone with PD?
