Not so sudden death

Thursday morning, my godmother's mother passed away. I was never really close with her, but she was a nice woman and she was always very sweet and helpful to me whenever I needed help with anything.

My mom is completely devestated because she was one of her caregivers for awhile while she was out of work from the hospital.

See, she had diabetes, was on dialysis, had lost both legs and had had a stroke. About a month ago she had another massive stroke that left her with very impaired speech. She had to be bathed and sometimes fed. But, through it all, she kept her sense of humor and her eyes always twinkled when someone new walked into the room.

I will miss her, but I'm glad that she isn't suffering anymore and has moved on to whatever is out there. If there is something out there.

On a lighter note, I'm back in my bedroom now, and am now in the process of putting everything where it belongs. How's that for fun?
