Old Bid

I got to York on Saturday afternoonb and went straight to the hospital to see Old Bid.  She did not loo too good at all, but was in goos spirits.

We had a good chat on Staurday night and she said “You know the other day I said I was dying by ionches, well I think I am picking up speed pretty fast.  My lungs are knackered and it’s curtains.  Mind you I am not bothered because there is nothing I can do about it”

It was the first time I had seen her since I broke my back and she was impressed with the scar and how well I looked, although she she did say that she thought I should be a little more careful in the future.

I saw her again and on Sunday Eveneing had a really nice time and said what we needed to say, I told her how much we all loved her and what a great mother she had been.

Old Bid died peacefully at 7am on Monday morning

She had a good life and was a good mum and we all love her very much, but at the end of the day we all have to pop off and she did it with dignity, wisdom and courage.

I am glad she didn’t suffer because she would have made a terrible invalid.
