A continuation of the last post is that we had the funeral for my nephew on Friday. It went as good as possible in these circumstances. Thank you every one for your comments, thoughts and support.
as you might be aware of my mum has been unwell. I went to visit her on Tuesday and she wasn't very good. We called the district nurse, then the ambulance. Off to the hospital we went. But we forgot to pack the " New idea magazine". I was with my mum and her husband til very late. They transferred mum to another hospital during the night. The following day her vitals were not good. Her meds were increased and we were told to call in the family to see her. One brother was down from Darwin, My eldest brother was near by, My poor brother, already mourning his son, had to make a long trip to see mum. All the family visited. Mum talked with them all. It was lovely. In a way happy but very sad too.
Off home we went late at night.
When I went back in on Thursday mum wasn't in her room, she had been moved. She made sure her "New Idea" went with her. In a way we got a laugh. If you knew mum you would know why..
I was with her an hour with 5 other members of the family. She talked occasionally with us but sadly took her last breath with us holding her hand.
I am fortunate to have spent so much time with her over the past few months.
The pain has gone now and we will farewell mum on Tuesday. (with her New Idea)
Mum is reunited with my dad and her 3 grandsons.
I know she will look after them and slowly the rest of her family will join her.
We all love you
