I'm not sure this adds any encouragement, but it helps to share these stories...I too have been dealt a lot of sorrrow, both my parents were living independently, when in Oct my father fell and died of complicatons in the hosp.,then, this past weekend, my mother who has suffered for many years from MS and mental instability, over-medicated herself Christmas night* and suffered cardiac arrest dying two days later. We were to move her to assisted living this very week! I am in real hard place myself, I am trying to understand all of this.
