Lost my mum to Covid

Hi. This is very raw and new as my mum only passed yesterday. She had been in hospital for a month with a broken femur, caught Covid last Saturday and yesterday she took a huge turn for the worse and passed away before we reached her. I can’t even express what I’m feeling. Grief, disbelief, anger , pain and no idea how my dad and I will get through this. She was 86 but she wasn’t ready to go yet. She had so much fire and life left. My dad and I are just devastated. Any words of advice are much appreciated. :heart:

Hils74,
I’m am so sorry the your lost your Mum. My only advice is take it hour by hour. Rest when you can. Try and eat, as my doctor said grief is very hard on the body. I also found going to bed an hour early every night helped.
Take care.

Thank you :heart:

Hi you are still in shock from what has happened you probably havent even begun to wrap your head around it. So many questions left unanswered and things left unsaid when it is not expected.
I am truly sad for you and your dad for finding yourself in this situation.
All I can say is go with the emotions as they come shout scream whail laugh cry. Be there for each other because you will both need eachother. Just take it as it comes. Come on here to unload and get advise you dont always have to take it but so many here have been where you are and again so many further on.
Just go with it as it comes.

Thank you. I just don’t know what to do with myself and my dad and I just don’t know what to do or how to cope. The support from here I feel will be invaluable :heart::heart::heart:
