Di Fw Posted July 6, 2018 Report Share Posted July 6, 2018 My beautiful, lively, happy, energetic mother died suddenly. She got up during the night, fell and bumped her head, and went into a coma. She did not wake up. She was in a coma for three weeks and then died. Only those who have lost a loved one, will understand the immense feeling of pain and isolation that comes with grief. She was due to move to the USA this year, I had found her a small apartment as she liked to be independent, found doctors for her to visit and was preparing for her big move. I was ecstatic to say the least and so was she. We both could not wait for the big day talking place this year. On February the 5th she fell, I received a call and immediately made plans to fly to South Africa. I sat at her bed daily for two weeks, talking to her telling her how much we all loved her, and willing her to wake up. The surgeon treating her suggested that I fly back home and said it would be weeks before she woke up. He said he would keep in touch and let me know the minute she starting showing signs of waking, he said this would be best, and I could then fly back. I have a job, I paid her medical insurance and her bills, and so made the tough decision of returning to the USA to commence work. I spoke to my mother, promised her I would be back, as soon as she awoke. A week later I received a call, my precious mother was not going to make the next few hours they said, she died soon after the call. I have such feelings of guilt, why didn't I stay a week longer, why did I listen to the Doctor and return home? I should have been there at her side when she died. I I just feel so angry, and so sad that she was taken so suddenly, and at the point where she was due to move and live close to where I am. We were going to do so much together, had so much more to see and do, but that is now gone and not to be. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
