Hi just to let you all know, my mum died this morning after a long and hard fight against breast cancer. My brother, dad, nan and I were with her holding her hand for the past two days as she slipt away peacefully in a local hospice after being admitted there to 'play' with her meds. It happened rather suddenly and quickly. At the moment, I feel quite numb, and am exhausted after only having 2 hours of sleep in the past 48. We are assured she was comfortable and wasnt in pain which is a comfort to us. x

Hello Hattycat.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. My Mom passed away 2 weeks ago, so the feelings are pretty fresh in my mind. To lose a parent, especially your Mom is difficult.

You have my condolences and prayers for you and your family. I know it is difficult because you are running pure adrenaline, but do make sure to take care of yourself.

Eventually the memories and the fact that she is no longer in pain, wil bring you some peace. She will always be in your heart.

I either read this somewhere or someone told me this that, in some ways you are closer to her after death than before. It has a bit of truth to it. I live about 3 hours away, so I didn't see my parents as much as I would have liked to. But, now she is my last thought of the day and first thing in the morning. And I talk to her through the day. I guess she is my angel now.
