I'm sooooo sorry about Lily!! I, too, just recently lost a cat to the rainbow bridge. Josie, my 14 year old beautiful, funny and loving kitty, passed away June 29th. She was just 2 days shy of her 14th bday. It was so sudden. The shock and overwhelming grief can knock you down. I know what you're going through and am still struggling with the loss. I never knew how much I could love an animal!!
My sincere condolences to your loss. It helps to read articles of the 5 stages of grief. It helped me understand how intense grief can be and how small steps each day can help with healing. It also helps to talk with friends and family members; most understand your loss and will help with the pain.
