The phone call I got this morning from my partner.  She told me that her mother has stopped eating and drinking.  We knew she had cancer and have known this for a couple of months, but the nurses that came this morning told her, her twin sister and their father that it seems that their mother/wife held on for Christmas.  I know from when my father died that at this stage a couple of days will be lucky.

I went to my mothers after the call (pre-arranged visit) and when my mother asked if there was any news I started to tell them (mother, brother, nephew and his wife) but had to leave the room as I struggled to talk.

Thanks.  She has spent quite a bit of time with her mother over the last couple of months, visiting on weekends more often than we used to.  Her twin sister has also been going over on alternate weekends so someone has been there almost continuously for the last month or so.  There are also 4 other siblings that have visited over the time also.

5 of them will have been expecting it, but one has been estranged for a few years and only found out yesterday.  She was being taken to see her mother today by her brother, but arrived too late and took it really hard.

I myself feel myself welling up when ever I have told anyone or even reading texts/facebook posts/even that post above by The Cat 3 (which popped up while I was typing this post).

The fact that they knew the end was coming and wouldn't be too long helps in my opinion.  You know that the person is going to die and are basically waiting for it to happen.  If the person was killed unexpectedly in an accident I think it would be a lot worse for the surviving family.

It is still a bitch when anyone dies because someone is going to be upset, but I suppose we have to accept it as a part of life.

My ramblings, for now, are done for the day.

I'm sorry for the people who have lost people recently.

I'm sad because one of the two jobs that I THOUGHT would've been a good fit, sent a no thanks to my application.  I'm entering 2018 with zero income.

Her daughter said, "the alphabet ends at y now." Very sad, indeed. May she rest in peace.
