I am sorry if this is the first you have heard but Mum died last Thursday. She was at home in her newly decorated living room, so at least she was somewhere she wanted to be rather than an impersonal hospital bed.
Mum has been ill for a long time but this was still unexpected. Needless to say, we are all struggling but surviving. The funeral is likely to be next week, not looking forward to that.
