Topic: Mom's (Mary) changes

Hi all Thank you for all your support, I was a little weepy this morning until I read your posts !
She is now coughing some, she must have regained her gag reflex from the stroke.  She is resting comfortable.  Urine has gotten a little darker and fingers and hands look different.  She is one tough lady.  I cannot believe that one can fight for days.  God bless her, she is such a wonderful mom.

Re: Mom's (Mary) changes

I'm glad to hear that she is resting more comfortably now & that you are also feeling a bit better.   Dealing with all of this is just so hard on everyone.  Just remember that you can come here whenever you want or need to for comfort, help & support.  This site & the people on it are all such wonderful caring & giving people.  We all know & understand what you & your family are going through as we have all been there ourselves.  Take care. I will keep you & your family in my thoughts & prayers.

This is probably the hardest road anyone can walk down. Bless her heart. She is also very lucky to have you by her side through this horrible journey. Hoping she stays more comfortable and take care of yourself too.

Re: Mom's (Mary) changes

You are now experiencing what was the most difficult thing I have ever gone through with my sister.  You are just sitting there looking for changes and the things they tell you to look for.  I am truly sorry for you and what you and your family are dealing with.  My sister never, ever showed any of the things they told us to look for.  She had better vitals than I do the night before she passed.  Her urine output was strong and hands were so warm to the touch.  God Bless You and your family.

Lwilson,
You have come to the right place, and you are not alone.  My father right now is exactly where your mother is at.  We are in the final stages of his life, and my heartache is imeasureable.  I lay next to him alot, message him, hug him, kiss him, and know my world will be a much sadder  place without him in it.  I am so sorry for your moms and your own suffering that this cancer brought and is still bringing.  You are a wonderful daughter, and I am certain it gives your mom great comfort that you are right there by her side as she takes this journey.
Peace and Prayer in the days, weeks, months to come
