I haven’t made many posts here but I have gained so much info from reading everyone else’s posts.
My mum peacefully passed away on December 7 at 3:38am. I sat holding her hand while she passed. I had been sleeping over at the hospital for the 5 days before as we had noticed her steady decline. I am so greatful for our amazing nurses keeping her very comfortable.
Hard to imagine we had been out and about on road trips and enjoying amazing food less than 2 months ago. She finished her treatment on October 30.
I look on the bright side that she’s once again with my dad. She had been heartbroken since he passed from kidney cancer 18 years ago.
