Hello everyone. My name is Karen and I am new to this site. I just lost my mother on December 8, 2006 and have really been having a hard time dealing with it. My mother and I had become so close the last few yars before her death and it was so sudden. She had gotten sick a week prior and went into the hospital where she found out that she had pneumonia. That following Monday she turned 64. They thought that she was beter so they let her come home from the hospital the next day. That following Thursday, for some od reason, we all showed up at Mom's house and we moved furniture and talked and the grandchildren were there and it was so much fun. My oldest sister called me early Friday morning saying "she's gone! she's gone!" I was confused and had no idea what she was talking about. When I figured it out, I couldn't believe it! We had all just been there the day before and she was fine. I screamed and threw the phone and terrified my children because they had no ide what was going on. Since then I have been so lost and confused and I guess just have not allowed myself o believe that she isn't here anymore. I try to be strong because the kids are having a hard time as well. So I hide my feelings until they have gone to bed or are not around. I forget sometimes that she's gone and pick up the phone to call her. I miss her so much! How to I get through it?
