Not a good morning

I slept in because I didn’t go to bed until 3am. That was nice. I walked the dog. That was normal. I came home and told my Mom to be very careful going to work because her job is past a bridge and that’s still going to have ice on it.

I came upstairs, called the doctors office to reschedule Cranky’s appointment, and opened a game on my phone. A caregiver from an assisted living facility called me and she was screaming and crying. Forgetful passed this morning. One of her blood clots burst as she was coming out of her bathroom and she died quickly. Her step son and step daughter in law are at the home now and going to have her sent to the funeral home for cremation.

I am stating everything simply because I am in shock. I just talked to her last night. She was fine. We were talking about me coming to visit tomorrow and she told me to stay safe and not drive in this today. This is the part of my job that I hate. I know my clients are all elderly and will die eventually, I’m just not prepared for it. She is the first one I have lost. Since she is only 76, I did not think I would lose her first.

The caregiver told me that another resident passed last night as well. How crazy is it over there? That’s 3 in 6 months that I knew at that facility. Forgetful’s step daughter in law just called me again. They are going to take the cats to her house and just go by daily to take care of them until they can find homes for them. She’s such a sweet person and to have to do all this I’m sure has been hard since Forgetful could be difficult at times.

Anyway, I’ll post again later. I’m going to miss that angry woman. I will definitely be at her memorial service.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss! Having worked in that field I can truly relate to your experience. I’m so glad it was quick for her and that she didn’t suffer a prolonged decline in health and mobility. There is nothing anyone can say that will ease the shock of losing someone you care about, but it does help to know people care. I am holding you in my HEART in Love. Sending Blessings and my Love to you and all who cared for her.
