My mother, who lives in California, who unfortunately I am not super close with, had 2 small strokes last week. Thought she was improving but now it's taken a turn for the worse. I fly out to CA tomorrow morning. Stomach is in knots. My dad, her ex, went to see her yesterday. She's like a skeleton, not eating, not really communicating or understanding what's going on. I am it for family - there is no one else. I don't know if she has any directives, a will - any info regarding her financial affairs and what to do to take care of them.
I am trying NOT to panic. Not panicking is not my strong point. It was hard enough to handle when my daughter left, and now... THIS.
