Double loss both parents
Mom died Sept 17 of lung cancer at age 84 as a total non smoker. Was diagnosed in Mar & did chemo for awhile, but finally requested hospice to make it easier on her daughters. Dad fell the day after mom died, which was the beginning of the end for him - picked up staph at ER, serious allergic painful reaction to antibiotic. Hospice called again to their home & he passed away Oct 23. Now today I finally started packing things off to my home- this is actually the hardest part for me, as I'm the one who put it all together for them just 3 yrs ago. They consolidated 2 smaller condos into this dream house where they could have live in caregiver.I printed a favorite recent pic of them from last fall, around their 57th anniv.
I am dreading the holidays but hope to have friends visit, get back to my job, etc. It really feels like they went together though the dates are a month apart.
