A last trip
|One of the roads near our cottage.|
I am sitting here in our living room and thinking about the trip we took to south Sweden, where we have our relatives and our cottage, during the Epiphany (Little Christmas) weekend. We usually do not take any trips during this season, because of the weather. It can be a bit moody in these times. It can be dry, sunny and almost feel like the Spring has arrived. Then it can be rainy, foggy and feel like late Autumn. And before you know it, you are in a snow storm, trying to see the road.

With a control of the weather and several forecasts, we packed our car and drove the 6 hours to mother in law. The nurses had phoned us several times, telling us that she is not doing well. My anxiety kicked in and we did not know what to expect. When we arrived, she was in her bed - happy, talking and looked like a sun, shiny and warm, we she saw us. She said: "Oh, there you are! You came!" The nurse who was there at that point told that mother in law has been happy and waiting for us to come.

We stayed at her place for four days and she perked up during those day. We had many good moments with talks, hugs, laughs and memories. But we had even some worries. She had some respiratory arrest during the day and it felt strange to have a nurse there by her side, all day and all night - even if this is a very good thing. Even I and the rest of the family sat next to mother in law from time to time.
And I am glad that we took this trip, because it was the last time we saw her. Today, on the 14th January, early morning, she passed away. May she rest in peace. I will miss her dearly.

I had one of my Pureneemo's along, Kielo (bought from Lise at Daggry Saga). I took some photos of her at the cottage and made a little comic. The Merida doll and Kielo's clothes are a gift from Alasse at The Wayward Inn.

I wish you the best for the new week ahead.
