Oh Channy I am so very sorry for your lose. I lost my Mum in March. We always lived together and were best friends, my absolute rock. She did have chronic pain and some mobility issues and in the last few weeks was bed bound and I made her a bedroom downstairs. We were due to go and see the knee surgeon when she had a massive cardiac arrest in front of me. I did CPR straight away and community responders and paramedics were on scene in minutes but there was nothing they could do. It was incredibly traumatic. As I sat with her body after and stroked her head, yes there was some blood from her mouth. I cleaned her up but I can understand your pain and upset.

All I can say is I try to remember that was one moment of her life. At least she would know nothing and wasn’t alone, she was in the comfort of her own home.

Do you feel okay having pictures of your Mum from happy times around? I find that helps. Also writing my thoughts in a journal, whether just lists of words I feel, doodles or letters to Mum.

i hope you can find some peace today.
