Yesterday my poor old mum waved me goodbye and with a lovely smile said, I'll see you tomorrow mum. Early this morning I said goodbye to her for the last time. Mum was found at 11pm last night on the bedroom floor of the C/H with a pillow under her head and one over her face the carer got her up and sat her on the bed she checked for injuries and mum was very confused dizzy and vomiting and calling for her mum. The carer made her comfortable and then put her back to bed at midnight the carer heard a loud thud mum had fallen again cracked her head open and was unconscious she dialed for the paramedics. I went straight to the local hospital but the ambulance was diverted to a bigger hospital owing to mum's deteriorating condition. On arrival mum was placed on life support and taken for a brain scan. When I arrived the nursing unit manager explained mum's poor condition and the Dr came with the results of the scan he said there was substantial brain injury.... three major bleeds and where her head cracked opened the bleeding behind that was causing pressure on her brain.....there was nothing they could do. Mum never regained consciousness her life support was turned off at 3:30am and she died at 4.40am. Mum is free from all the misery of the last eight years and is finally on her way home to the place she so longed for with her beloved mum. Mum was a very genuine caring and gentle soul she'll be sorely missed the tears are for our loss as we could never cry for a soul set free. Her journey has ended. Mum's wishes were to be cremated at the same cemetery as her mum and her ashes scattered to the four winds.... within the cemetery, but that is no longer allowed. Tomorrow hubby and I will travel to make funeral arrangements and hopefully find some alternative about the ashes. Dearly, I would have loved to place mum along side dad who we buried eight weeks ago but that's not to be we will endeavour to fulfil her wishes. Regards Taffy.
