Losing my mum

My mum 81 broke her hip 14 wks ago i had to put my dad 82 in hospital as he has last stages of dementia and i couldnt be there 24 hrs a day , when mum came home she kept on about having dad home but there was no way she could cope with him home i wrk mornings and afternoons i have been going over to help mum , then traveling 12 miles each way to see dad in hospital . Then 4 wks ago mum has a massive stroke they flew her from barnstaple to derriford, for the operation but mum has a catastrophic bleed they kept mum alive until i got down there to say goodbye . I have an 11 yrs old we are heart broken , i dnt feel i have had anytime to grieve for my mum , my dad then caught covid and it was touch and go for 48 hrs he has pulled through , but with organising the funeral , seeing dad , then the hospital were on my back about moving my dad into a home that was horrible the day after my mums funeral , now they have a different one but its 54 miles away from us im in such a state i normally see my dad every day now i will only see him once a wk
