My mom passed away on July 22nd 2021. 2 Days before her 77th birthday. She had open heart surgery to get her valve replaced on June 24th 2021. The doctors all say the surgery went as planned. My mother was complaining she felt like she was underwater and could not breathe. Her attitude after the surgery was full of fear and anxiety. My brother and I were with her when she passed. I am trying to let go of my anger about she is gone. I would talk to my mother 2-3 times a day. She was so sad and in so much fear the weeks after her surgery. I thought she was on the road to getting better. She had various setbacks during her rehabilitation, including a minor stroke. I have been talking with my network of friends and family, but I am still kinda in shock and miss her dearly.
