    @Lh718 is your mom working with a social worker or faith leader? Folks in those positions can often help families navigate the hospital bureaucracy and paperwork.

    I know you know your way around hospitals but it’s different when it’s family. Sending lots of love.

    I’m so sorry. It cannot be said enough that this is a super fucked up time baseline and losing a loved one right now is so many more layers of terrible. Process, grieve, deal however you need to just to get through a day at a time.

    I’m so sorry LH. Grief is strange, and we all grieve differently. Don’t worry about what that looks like for you, or feel ungrateful because of it. You are processing in your own way and that’s ok <3

    So sorry Lh, loss is always hard but when theres a lot of potential legal issues surrounding that definitely makes things so much more overwhelming. I don't think anyone would fault you for crying

    Echoing the others that you don't sound ungrateful and absolutely no one would fault you for crying at work.

    Can Rooster take your phone and manage texts for you to take some of that weight off your shoulders for right now?

    I’m sorry. I want to second everyone’s comments that you don’t sound ungrateful, just overwhelmed. Which is totally ok. I wish I knew more about the issues you’re facing to help. Sending you so much love right now.

    I'm sorry, LH <3. I don't think you sound ungrateful at all. That all would make me anxious too.

    My cousin just broke everyone's hearts. Tonight was night 6 of 9 of novena for my dad. Basically it's a variation of the rosary every night to pray specifically for the departed.

    After prayer time, people are encouraged to speak. The host drew out my cousin who has been living with my parents, and she broke down hard. She kept apologizing that she's not good with words and didn't want to be a burden and was too emotional a person. Her parents were doing to tut tut chin up routine on their screens. Meanwhile P and I just wanted to hug her and give her space to grieve.
