Ditto. She's 87 but in perfect condition. But so was my friend's & out of nowhere she had a stroke in her sleep, seemed to fully recover, then died in her sleep 3 days later. I live with mine, just her & me, as I'm divorced & she lost her job & she adores her house so I saved it for her by making an apartment for myself to live with her & help her financially etc. She wakes up every morning at the same time. So, so do I, waiting to hear her awakening. I'm scared that one day I won't hear her on her floor above me at that time & find she passed in her sleep. ALTHOUGH IT'S HER BEST WAY TO GO-NO ILLNESS/SUFFERING, I'm petrified for the day when it comes. It's natural to dread the day we lose the person we entered this Earth from. But we MUST MOVE ON, in time. Something inside all of us kicks in naturally & it's not as bad as we dreaded that which I have experienced & heard. But it's Mom, & no matter what, when her time comes it will be dreadful & heartbreaking. There's no way around it. So try your best to cherish each & every moment you have her. I know it sounds easy, but try. It sure beats mourning her death while she's still here & smiling hopefully. Best wishes!
