My Mom passed away in March. I'm still shocked. It's not like I thought it was never going to happen, it was just there was no warning.
She wasn't sick or anything. In fact it's been over a year since she's had to go to the hospital. We saw her one day, she was her usual talking, laughing, singing self, then during the night a nurse called and said when they checked on Mom she was gone.
It's been so strange not going to the nursing home and seeing her. It's been a part of our routine for 4 1/2 years. I feel kind of lost. Hippie says we'll have to get used to a new routine.
