My uncle died last Saturday after a long illness that we don’t really know what it was he has spent the last 12 weeks in hospital and I’m finding it hard because I promised him I’d bring him home and look after him and that if it was that he was end of life I’d bring him home. We where not told it was end of life and it was not expected I can’t help but wish it was me who died and not him as less people would be hurting
