Bad news - I've lost my mom

Mom passed away last night just before midnight. I took her to emergency Wednesday afternoon because she had a rough night with upset stomach, vomiting, weakness, and feeling faint. They put her on fluids and said blood tests indicated she was anemic. She's had anemia before so we didn't think too much about it. We just figured she had a touch of flu and good thing we took her in and found out about it. They admitted her and gave her a couple units of blood to build her back up. Then they said she was diabetic. OK, that can be controlled. She had some blood in her stool so they scheduled a colonoscopy for this morning. I was with her last night and she was really uncomfortable. Her abdomen was swollen and hard and her back really ached. She had to drink a gallon of something to clean her out before the test, but she just couldn't do it. I stayed with her till about 11:15, trying to help her and rubbing her back and feet to try to relax her. She even joked about continuing that after she got to come home. I left, planning to be back at 7:30a for her test. About 10 mins after I got home, the doctor called and said her heart had just stopped shortly after I left. It's really a shock. We had just settled into our new house. She was busy fixing up her "Left Wing Command Center"; had made a cover for the small round table and a couple throw pillows. I thought we would have more time together but she already has left many memories here in the new home. At least I had a chance to tell her I loved her before I left the hospital and she told me she loved me and was lucky to have me. That means so much to me. That and that she didn't become an invalid. That would have been hard for her. I felt I should let you know what happened.
Corky, of course, will remain with us. We planned for this and Mom never had to worry what would happen to him if something happened to her. Her budgie also. We just never dreamed it would happen so fast! I've lost my closest friend, as well as my mother.

I'm really sorry, *huggles*

I'm glad it ended on a good note though, that you got to say goodbye, and see her. That your last memory with her isn't great because it was in a hospital, but she was still in good spirits while you were together with her. My dad was upset about not getting that closure with my grandfather.. the last goodbye, and it haunted him for years.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's a good thing that she didn't suffer for too long and you can take pride in knowing that you did everything for her. She knew how you felt about her and that is wonderful. :grouphug:

It's strange how that happens- how people die when you leave the room. Some people would say it's because your energy gave her the strength to keep going just long enough for that last visit. :grouphug:

Thank you, all! I lost my Mom and my closest friend, but I'm at peace in knowing I did everything possible to make things easier for her and my Pop in their senior years. They're both gone now. I'll be alright. They did their best job to ensure that I grew up able to be strong and independent. I couldn't have asked for better parents. They weren't perfect and that's good because I wasn't a perfect kid either. But, they taught me values and love for animals. They knew how much I loved them. I can't ask for much more. It's nice to know I still have a sympathetic ear to turn to when I need it. (Editing this to clarify that I mean "because I can no longer call my Mom")

You can 'always' call on your mom dear, through your prayers and through talking to her spiritually. You may not hear her voice but you will feel her love in your heart and know just what she would say.
