I feel numb. We lost my mum 5 years ago. Her death was sudden but she pain suffered RA for a very long time and i was able to rationalise it as she was out of pain. Dad was fit and generally healthy. At 72 he hadn't been in hospital for 25 years. He was a little deaf and had the beginnings of cataracts but that was all. He felt ill on monday was really poorly Tuesday and was blue lighted to hospital with a blood clot on the lung. By Tues evening he was stable, Wed he was doing really well and we had a good chat on Wed night. Thurs morning I had a call from his companion saying the hospital had called and he was very poorly. She called me but we live nearly 2 hours away. The clot moved to his heart and that was it.
I am 37 and have no parents
My dh and 3 yo ds are helping so much but it feels so unfair. He loved ds so much and would have loved to see him grow up. Him and companion were having a nice time being together. it's not right
You will be numb for a while, my dad died in June and only in the last few weeks has the numbness worn off. That's when other emotions hit. I hope you've lots of support from family an freinds. There's lots of support here too if you need it. Hugs x
Sorry for your loss. My dad died end of august, he was making holiday plans. He was DDS best mate. I'm just a couple of years older than you and am now parentless.As mairy said its just starting to hit me now that he's not around for coffee and chats about silly stuff. Be kind to yourself, it takes time to come to terms with .
