3 losses in 6 weeks
We expected Mom to leave us 8 years ago after her aneurysm rupture, but somehow unable to speak, eat or care for herself she was just too stubborn to give up. She loved us fiercely and didn't want to go. God finally called her home on June 3rd. You are never ready. She was my best friend.
Grandma was 90 years old on June 3. Yes, the day Mom passed. She had just had a severe stroke and was still quite active until about 6 months prior to this. I was always her little angel "no matter how old" she would say. She passed on July 20.
My close friend was diagnosed with lung cancer in June. His surgery was July 9. They got all of the cancer, but he couldn't breathe on his own afterwards. He left this earth Saturday and his funeral is the same day as my Grandmother's. I am not able to attend.
I am beyond overwhelmed. It's way past unfair, way beyond the limits of comprehension. I know someday I'll be able to wrap my head around this... Or maybe not.
