My MIL died suddenly yesterday. My 8 year old nephew found her when he came home from school. (she takes care of him) Apparently she was sitting on the couch with the remote in her hand and he couldn't wake her up. He ran and got help but they think she had passed but took her to the hospital anyway. If you could all just say some prayers for us, I would appreciate it.
My dh is a mess. I am a mess. She did so much for us and always helped us out when we needed it-from taking the dog when we wanted to go away, to having Char overnight whenever she wanted to go up there (which was a lot). They were "pals" and the two of them would hang out like old ladies. She was not my mother but I have to say I am devastated.
Over the years she would make me mad but I know I did the same. We were a lot alike!! But she was kind and generous and LOVED her grandchildren. She always had her door open.
My dh and his brother wanted an autopsy done to find out what happened. She didn't complain about not feeling well but she wasn't one to complain about her health. I would appreciate if you could just keep us in your thoughts over the next few days.
So sorry to hear Nora! Prayers for you whole family!
How old was your MIL?
She was 68-going to be 69 next week.
My nephew seems to be OK. I don't think he realized she was dead. (and I don't mean to put it so bluntly either. I just cannot keep saying "passed.") The ambulance came and took her away-he went to a friends house while his mother followed the ambulance to the hospital. He did stay home from school today, though. It is hard to say what he processed.
The whole thing is so sad. She was such a good person.
