    Two weeks my Mom had her first PT appt. This was after a stroke last September. She was living on her own and adapting to having limited use of her left side. (61 years old). Medicaid took that long to approve her. She wasn't quite old enough for medicare. (or is that reversed?) Friday she had her second appt. Because we as a family own a business and the three of us (sisters) all work at that business on 12 hour shifts, we depended on aging services to pick her up. They left her yesterday sitting and waiting for 2 hours alone. Our hospital's policy is that until people in my Mother's situation are picked up hospital personnel are to wait with them. They never arrived and nobody was out there with her. To make a long story short Mom somehow fell and hit her head. She was life-lined to another hospital and we were called to be told that Mom was at that hospital and we should get there fast. My mom has always been my best friend (and harshest critic). We arrived there and eventually were told that the fall had caused bleeding on the brain and she stroked because of this and was brain dead. They told us she would never breathe on her own again. We knew Mom's wishes in this situation and we let her go. I held my Mother's hand until she passed at 12:44 AM Saturday Morning. I not only lost my Mother but my best friend. May she rest in peace.

    Thank you all for listening,

    Kim

    Thank-you, I keep going around and around with anger, grief and numbness. I was hoping nobody would mind if I posted here. Sometimes writing things down helps.

    I am so sorry for your loss. You have a right to be angry considering the circumstances.
    Time will heal but you will always have your memories. There is not a day goes by that I wish my mom and I could just sit and talk. She's been gone 21 years. I still miss her.
    You are in my prayers.
