Topic: My Mom, Ann

I had not posted much but I used this site as a great reference point in trying to help plan my Mother's treatment.  Lukily, she did not have to indure this disease for a long time.  She was diagnosed April 29.  She passed away today at 12:25 Central.  I had spoken to her this morning about getting her stent replaced, as she was jaundiced again.  She was in the hospital because of an infection.  I wanted to call her this afternoon during my lunch break to see how she was doing.  The nurses answered the phone and said she was not responding and was having trouble breathing.  I knew then that she intented to go home to Heaven and would not let anyone stand in her way.  I have lost my mother, best friend and biggest supporter.  I am relieved that her suffering is over and I no longer need to worry about the day that they will tell me she will need to stop the chemo and go to hospice.  I am heartbroken because she is no longer in my life.  Most of all, I just want to talk to her so she can make all the tears go away.  I love you Mom.

Re: My Mom, Ann

We are very sorry to hear about your mom. You sound like a wonderful daughter and although your mom is not in your sight she remains in your heart and mind forever and will be guiding you from her new home. A home free of pain and disease.

I'm writing this from Heaven.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness;
here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through.
God picked me up and hugged me
and said, "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
they'll be here later on.
God gave me a list of things,
that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list,
was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night,
the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you...
in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth,
and all those loving years.
Because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry:
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.
One thing is for certain, through my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb;
Together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
And now I am contented....
that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile.
When you're walking down the street
and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go....
from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going...
your coming home to me.

Re: My Mom, Ann

Amy,

I am sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, but you can take some comfort in the fact that she did not have to endure this horrible disease for too long and is now free and no longer in pain.  Talk to her whenever you want to as she is never far away. She will be with you in your heart and memories forever.

Re: My Mom, Ann

Thank you everyone.  I think things are starting to hit me know.  The visitation is today.  I was on antibiotics before my Mom passed and now I am running a fever. I don't know how to get through today and then add in the fever.  My brother and his kids are staying with me in our house(I lived with my Mom) and my niece, I believe is coming down with chicken pox.  It just doesn't make anything easier.  And my birthday is in 2 1/2 weeks.  I turn 30 and I won't have my Mom and I miss her sooooo much.

Re: My Mom, Ann

Amy,

I'm so very sorry for your loss.  May you find peace in your memories, and until you are able to smile again, know that we walk this journey with you.

Re: My Mom, Ann

Hi Amy, I'm crying with you right now, and so sorry for your loss and grief.  You are strong to recognize the peace that exists for your Mom no longer suffering and so very human to want her back, to take away the pain.  I know it hurts, you're in my prayers.
