Topic: my beautiful mother and best friend

My mother Stina passed away the 19. of novenmber. I love her of all my heart and I fought for her life in two month. It is the worst thing that ever happened and could happen. I of course miss her terribly every minute of the day and I still have to say to myself what has happened. I keep going over in my mind how I or the doctors could have found out earlier so that she could have had some kind of treatment. It is so so strange that she will not enter the dor again with her beautiful smile and wunderfull shearfull spirit.

I am only 29 and she only 67, we had so many dreams for the future. The worst thing for me to think about is that she will not be there for me if/when I have children - I know that it was her dream too. I told her that I was afraid of that, she didn't say anything I think it scared her that I said that. I think she had a strong belief that she would be well again.

In july she had dificulties walking and pain in the left leg, therefore she went to the doctor. At the hospital they didn

Re: my beautiful mother and best friend

Julie ..... My sincere condolences.  May you have comfort knowing that your Mom is resting in loving and lasting peace now.  It is sad Julie,  that this disease sneaks up on us and a lot of the time we don't even get a chance to put up a good fight.  Then again others battle and suffer continually for months or years just to hold on to life and their loved ones. Don't feel guilt Julie as this disease has a mind of it's own.  You did what a loving daughter should do; and that was being there when your Mom needed you the most. God Bless You!

Re: my beautiful mother and best friend

Dear Julie,
thank you for sharing your story about your wonderful Mom.  My husband and I also where on a trip to Italy and other places in Europe when some of the symptoms appeared relating to this disease.  Of course, just as it was in your case, no one suspected it to be CC,as it is a difficult diagnoses to make.    Jeff explained it so well.
My heart goes out to you and I am hoping for your heart to heal...one day at a time...

Re: my beautiful mother and best friend

Dear Julie,
So sorry to hear of you loss - my mother was 64 when she died and had only 2 months from diagnosis to death under hospice care. Please don't feel guilty - we all go over the details in our heads and try to figure out how we could have made it better, but the truth is that we don't have it in our power to cure anyone with this disease - as everyone said before me, you were a loving daughter and that's what matters the most.

You'll be in disbelief for a long time - I still can't say that my mother is gone because it tears out my heart if I have to believe it. Please accept all my sympathy.
