I will never forget the day it happened. My mum had drove my dad, my two brothers and I up to my aunties. And I can remember my mum saying that she had a really bad headache and she would not stop saying it. So my auntie sat her down with a cup of tea. Five minutes later she collapsed on the floor.
As I was only eight at the time I didn't understand what was going on but I can remember my dad trying to put her into the recovery position, but it didn't work. We rang the ambulance and they came around straight away.
The next day my dad came back from the hospital and said that she was being transfered to another hospital but he promised me that she would be home by Sunday. I sat up all Saturday night waiting for Sunday morning to come but she never ended up coming home. And even after about three or four months I still thought that she was going to come home, but she never did.
She was the most important thing to me and every one else in my family. I wish I could have taken her place. She didn't deserve to go so soon. I really miss her and I will always miss her and hope to be with her soon.
I love you mum.
