It was only four years ago this week that my mom passed on a Saturday morning, on Dec 9th. She had fallen on her front steps when she and my dad got home early Friday evening the week before, knocking dad down and landing with her head on the road surface. She had a bad head injury, and lapsed into a coma. She was 90.
All week we hoped that this "tough old bird" would surprise everyone and pull out of it, but it was not to be. So, we arranged for her to be moved to a hospice nearby for comfort and hydration. Then, in my mom's typical style, a very private person, she waited until only her nurses were near, and shuffled off her mortal coil. We arrived a couple of hours later after the doc called us.
I considered her relatively quick departure a blessing, because I knew she did not want to be kept alive in a home in a vegetative state, as one of her friends had experienced. So, she left comfortably and quietly. It will be great to see her again someday.
Have been busy. Stopped to read, but haven't posted here in a while.
