Mum stayed in the hospital for a week and was ultimately confirmed as having had a full stroke. Fortunately, she's home now and recovering very well.
It's our first Christmas since Sue died. We spent yesterday evening with her boyfriend, Paul, and had a really good time, thinking both to the past and to the future. Today, mum and I have been alone together and have had a quiet, peaceful and very enjoyable day. We miss Sue very much but her essence is evident everywhere and we both feel reassured that she is out of pain and safe from harm
Happy Christmas to all.
