My mom fell, hit her head, then died when the medics got her to the ER
My mom had just had her gall bladder out one week before. She had done beautifully and was healing perfectly. My sister and I checked on her every day and spent the afternoons with her. She did not want to stay with one of us. She was an extremely healthy 82 year old and worked 2 days a week at our local hospital. I had just left her and 2 hours layer got the call that she had pushed her medic alert button. They got to her and found her unresponsive and rushed her to the hospital where she went into cardiac arrest and died. She had a deep dent on the back of her head where she had tripped or something in the kitchen and must have hit the counter top. We got there just as they were pronouncing her dead. We are devastated and shocked. We had her cremated and had a beautiful memorial service for her but we are still in shock. How do we get through this?
