Mom's still hanging on - she's a tough old bird! (One of the dwindling number of overseas vets from the Second World War). Unfortunately this one is a fight she's going to win at 94 years old).
I can appreciate the freakiness of the experience of seeing your death notice and tombstone.
One month prior to my step 1 colitis surgery in 2007 I got pneumonia and in my weakened condition the only way they could save me was to put me under for 5 days and feed me the meds to pull me through. When I woke up 5 days later I was on morphine. It caused me to hallucinate for 2 days. It was a terrifying experience! I'll relate a couple of pieces of it - in one scene I was observing my father's funeral from a distance at the cemetery. I could see my brothers and all the family gathered around the grave in another I was on my way to my own funeral. It was all so surreal! (Fortunately I woke up before arriving at mine). So I can well imagine the weird feelings you experienced!
Well it's back to the bush tomorrow so I can restock my freezer with venison!
