TTC- I haven't had any unbearable pain. Just been really tender between my belly button and where the stitches are down low.
My MIL passed away last night. It all happened so quickly. We had a meeting with the palliative care team earlier in the day and that was a bit of a shock and then we went home. We were going to have the night at home and then go back in this morning but we got a call from DH's Dad and he said to come straight away because she didn't have long to go. By the time we got there, she was gone. I wish we could've been there with her when she passed away. I'm grateful that she had her sister and husband with her though. DH shared a poem on facebook for his Mum and I thought I would share it here because it is really beautiful:
You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
