My dad died, then 2 1/2 weeks later my mother passed awy
I just have no idea how I should feel after losing both my parents within 3 weeks of each other. My father, aged 88 wasn't really sick, just passed away one morning in his favourite chair. My mother took it extremely hard, as we all did. Then, the unexpected happened, my mother aged 80 passed away 2 1/2 weeks later. She was never sick a day in her life, well, that's what we all thought. Apparently she had acute leukemia.....the autopsy results are not back yet. She would not have known she was so sick. She was my fathers carer, and I think she was so involved taking care of him she didn't realise her tiredness was actually due to having leukemia. Never visited a doctor, just went to bed one night and friends found her semi conscious in her bed. She was rushed to hospital but died 4 hours later.....we never made it to be with her as we live 3 1/2 hours away. Just how do people deal with this sort of loss? I feel empty, cheated and extremely sad all at the same time. I know it's only early days, but I don't see how I am ever going to get over this.
