Ok, guys. I've had enough. Those of you that read my blog know that in August, my uncle died in the States. The day I came back, we found out the my mother-in-law's best friend of 60 years had passed away. So this past Sunday, we left for Scotland for the funeral. Mom knew that she was in no shape to go, but insisted that we go in her place. Later that morning, Mom's carer came in and decided she didn't look right. So the carer called an ambulance and they took Mom to the hospital. We finally found all this out Sunday afternoon and called the hospital. Nurses said she was doing well - had had a cup of tea and a cup of cocoa and was sitting up chatting with them. Told them we would call back the next day, which was the day of the friend's funeral. But the next morning, the hospital called us to tell us that Mom had had a massive heart attack in the early hours and passed away. We had to stay for the funeral so we got home last night (Tuesday). I've been in a fog for two days. Now we have to start making funeral arrangements for Mom, and it's all getting to be a bit much. It all needs to stop now. Just hope all of you are having a better couple of months than we are.
