Last Monday my aunt passed away. Her intestines ruptured. Yesterday we were supposed to say goodbye to her before she gets cremated. But her husband, my uncle and mom's brother, was so hurt by this all that he tried overdosing, and we had to call 911. He wasn't able to speak and it turns out he had a stroke. We're not sure how he is yet, but he didn't even remember my mom. Her father had a major stroke 7 years ago and is paralyzed on one of his sides and cannot speak. My mom is having such a hard time right now, and I feel terrible too. It all feels like a nightmare and I can't believe that my aunt is gone... Just to remember her and look at her pictures, it tears me apart. She was such a sweet woman. But she suffered for many years because of an accident. She's no longer in that pain anymore at least. But we all miss her. And now we have to worry about losing my uncle too. The other day he was crying and hugging me, it's hard to think that now he may not be the same again. And my mom has lost a brother to overdose already. I just don't know what to do for me and her. This is all so hard We had to put off the cremation because of my uncle going to the hospital. But now that he's had a stroke he can't say goodbye to his wife. He may not even remember her. My mom is going to say goodbye to her for us all... I wanted to go, but she said she would feel better having me at home. Plus that it would just make me feel worse seeing her... (she had her eyes donated as well) I feel like I'll regret not seeing her, and right now I'm just a wreck.. I can't imagine how my mom is doing but another part of me feels like I should stay here for my mom.. I just don't know Rest in peace Aunt Audrey, you were a sweet woman who put up with a lot of pain for so long. At least you're at peace now. I'll miss you, and I wish I could have seen you one last time. Or hugged you before this all happened. I love you, and I'll pray for you and your husband. He was very sweet to donate your beautiful eyes. You'll always be in my heart, and I'll do my best to take care of grandpa and Todd. And your dogs miss you so much. I'll do what I can to take care of them too.
