Mom had several bad falls, multiple broken bones and was suffering horribly. We started hospice yesterday. AL called me, she was actively dying this am. I jumped in the car, drove all day but she died 30 minutes before I got there.
My BIL and nephews were with her and dad. It was peaceful. Dad kissed her goodbye and cried a bit but the boys and staff got him to the lobby by the time I got there. By then he was happily telling his fishing stories.
I’ve hardly processed it all yet. I’m so relieved that she did not spend months suffering from all her injuries.
My thanks to all the good folks on this forum. I’ve learned so much and gotten such great support through the years.
