Giving the gift of sight

Faye with daughter Jo2

Mum was a vibrant and young 67, so when I received a call that she’d had a stroke, it was a genuine shock.  After racing to the hospital and seeing that Mum was “okay”, I said to her at least it was only this and not the other – meaning death.  But things were not meant to be, and Mum suffered a devastating brain hemorrhage less than 48 hours later. 

I feel so genuinely lucky to have had an hour or so with her that morning, once we knew she wasn’t going to make it, and to say my goodbyes and lie next to her while she took her last breaths.
