Topic: Mom's now resting

After an extremely courageous battle with this horrific illness (diagnosed 8/09), my mom passed away Friday, February 25th at 10:15pm.  We were still in the local Hospice facility.  She had been experiencing shortness of breath for quite some time and was on 4 liters of oxygen.  It is so hard to watch a loved one decline, and I'll never get over it.  She was my very best friend.  It is a blessing knowing that she is now in heaven with my dad and is able to finally rest.  My dad passed away in 1998 at the age of 51 with stomach cancer.  For these cancers to be so "rare", I've seen my share.  I can now only pray that a cure is found soon....

Lanne, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.  Your mom is at peace now with your dad.  I, too, have lost both parents now.  Take care of yourself and rest when you can.  It will become easier to deal with in the future but for now, I know it hurts.  I am truly sorry you lost your mom, your best friend.

Re: Mom's now resting

Lanne,
I am so sorry for your loss.  You'll hear people say your life will get back to normal, I found there is no normal.  I loss my Mom Nov. 21, 2010, my husband to cc Feb. 17, 2010.  I was with them my Mom I stayed with her for the last one and a half weeks.  My Wayne I was with him in the hospital for 4 weeks and 1 day at hospice.  To watch your love one get weaker and weaker and knowing you can't do anything about it has to be the hardest thing on earth, but would you have not been there, I don't think so.  Go to counseling I have been going for 8 months it is well worth it.

May God give you peace.
Terry

Re: Mom's now resting

Thank you all so much for the kind words, thoughts and prayers.  This is definitely the hardest thing I've had to face in life, but I know that I was blessed to have had the wonderful life that I was albe to experience with her.  God Bless you all!

Re: Mom's now resting

Lanne,  You definitely have had your share of sorrow. Your mom sounds just lovely and I am glad you are finding peace in that she is with your dad. I know how hard this if for you, for no matter what age we are we feel orphaned at the passing of our parents. Take comfort in knowing they are always with you, you will feel their presence everyday. Take care. Nancy
