Losing my Mom

Postby Bonkers » Mon Nov 03, 2008 6:09 pm

My Mom is fading away tonight. We have hospice on board. She was always so strong for my Dad during his PSP journey and now there is nothing we can do but watch her go. Her vitals are erractic and her heart is irregular---she's had so much to fight--Alzheimers, heart valve, and now the stomach cancer--at least her fight is almost over. Please keep us in your prayers. No matter how much you prepare yourself and you know it is for the best---it is still sooooo hard. As soon as I get off work I am headed over to the nursing home. I don't think she will last the night----fall is such a pretty time of year and one of my Mom's favorites I think, Good to go home before the snow falls. She just turned 77 on Oct 21 and is one of the "babies" at the nursing home.

I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Soon, your Mom will be joining your father, I know you are taking comfort in that.

You are so correct in saying "No matter how much you prepare yourself and you know it is for the best---it is still sooooo hard."
You remind me of myself as I had the same thing with my parents but my mom passed away before my dad due to her cancer.
God Bless you I know what you are going through and the feelings your having. Just remember she will be with your Dad happy and healthy again!! I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Mama went to be with her Lord & Saviour Thursday evening after a long hard battle. She had Alzheimers, a bad heart valve, and stomach cancer. But no matter how bad things ever got for Mom while she had Daddy--she always took care of Dad as he fouoght PSP despite all of her own problems.

I am so numb and so full of pain. I didn't realize how much love I really held for Mom. I knew I loved her--but I just didn't realize HOW MUCH. She, of all people, was my very life.
