Topic: Missing Mom on Mother's Day
I just lost my mom on April 25, 2011. She was diagnosed on January 7th, 2011 and there was nothing the doctors were able to do for her. They attemped surgery but found the cancer to be spread throughout her liver, and she was too weak for chemo. In that short time my mom declined quickly and I still feel like its shocking that this really has happend to me and my family. My dad is heartbroken and me and my 2 sisters as well. Mom died at home age 69, with all of us surrounding her as she took her last breath. It was peaceful though and a couple hours later while waiting for the coroner to pick her up I dozed off for a moment, I dreamed my mom sat up from the hospital bed in her livingroom, dressed and looking healthy and she leaned over and hugged me, then I woke up. I believe that was a gift from my mom. This week has been hard with Mother's Day coming up this weekend. I miss her so much, does anyone have any advice about greiving and when and if it will get better.
