She passed at 5:30am. She was on a Morphine drip. We drove to San Diego yesterday and stayed untill 9pm. If she could hear me or not I told her how much I loved her and what a wonderful Mom she was to all of us. My Bother called this morning at 5:50am and said she had passed.
I am so sorry to hear this; regardless of age, losing a parent is devastating. When my mother died we had her here at home with the aid of hospice. The last wk or so she was in a coma but I sat many times next to her bed telling her how much we all loved her. The hospice nurse finally said 1 day that she just needed to know thast it was ok to let go. I remember telling her that I would miss her but that we would be ok and the next day she did let go. When my father passed, it was out of the blue--a fatal heart attack. With mom, breast cancer spread to the pancreas & we had about 8 wks from that diagnosis to the end. I don't know which is worse--the total shock or watching & waiting knowing the end is coming. With dad I did not get to say goodbye but I know he knew how much he was loved. With mom, it was the"long goodbye" & it was dreadful seeing her suffer so even though losing her was terrible I was relieved that her suffering had come to an end. My heart ached for a very long time but it has been 8 yrs now & although I still miss her & think of her daily my broken heart has healed. Please know my thoughts are with you. You will have some difficult days but it will get better.
