My dad got taken into hospital at the end of March, with sepsis and was then diagnosed with covid 19. 8 days later my mum was taken into the same hospital with pneumonia, and diagnosed with covid too.
Mum passed away 4 days later. The nurses managed to move mum next to dad and she died peacefully next to him.
Dad was discharged from hospital a week later, with palliative care. Dad died exactly 2 weeks after mum.
Yesterday was their joint cremation and small service at the funeral directors (due to covid restrictions).
Yesterday was the first day I cried for dad. Today I can’t stop crying.
I don’t know what to do. How am I supposed to carry on?
I have a 5 year old, she has some grasp of what’s going on but mum had dementia and was pretty scary for my daughter. We have only just moved back to the uk in August so I don’t have a group of friends I can rely on here. I feel so alone.
