My mum passed away early hours last Tuesday without warning she felt unwell on early monday but NO-ONE expected this. She had ongoing problems with arthritis,her heart, kidney and bowel She was on a cocktail of pills something that was always a topic of conversation because she never felt she understood all the pills and what they were for. She was sent to hospital with severe chest pains after visiting her G.p on the monday afternoon. After arriving to hospital she got worse and vomited up a quantity of blood. Because her heart was always so weak it could not cope with the blood loss and she passed away. Because she was in hospital less than 24 hours the coroner automatically is involved they asked if we wanted a post mortem and i declined because my mum did not like anything like that and also she had a lot of problems and i felt i just wanted her to go in peace, no drama a truly deserved dignified goodbye.The pills she was on caused lots of side effects and could have caused the internal bleeding. The hospital weren't much help but nothing will change the fact mum has gone.I hope mum feels I made the right choice to be honest I think its awful to be expected to make that kind of decision after such a shock especially over the phone this country is so mixed up I think more support should be made available. Anyway I'm waffling just needed to talk!!!!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
