Lost my Mom just two days ago
My Dad died in 2008 and my Mom's heart was broken. They would have been married 60 years that following June. We found out that she had Alzhimers but my Dad never accepted it. She ended up falling and breaking her hip, followed by pneumonia and small heart attacks. At this point she was in the last stages of Alzhiemers. The part that broke my heart was when I would call her and she didn't want to talk. She was in Hospice for about one week. Luckily I got to talk to her that day because my sister happened to be with her. We live in NY but my Mom was in Florida with my sister. I had just made flight reservations that day to go see her tomorrow(Fri 2/21).Four days too late.
