Saturday: When my mum didn't respond to my text message on Saturday morning, I knew something was wrong. My brother told me that he was taking her to the doctor. The previous day my mum was complaining about headaches and mentioned that it felt like her asthma was back.
A few days before that, my mum had kidney stones removed. We thought the headaches were a result of a strong cocktail of anesthetic.
I didn't quite know what to do with myself on Saturday to pass time. My friend, Nicoletta invited me to her place and I spent some time with her, her mum and son.
Later that evening, we all went out for sushi dinner. After that I spent a couple of hours with another friend.
I only got home very late that night and didn't sleep well. I was so used to keeping in contact with my mum.
My brother told me that my mum was in ICU. I didn't think too much of it because earlier my dad told me that there was fluid on my mum’s lungs. In my mind they were just going to isolate this infection and everything would be OK....
