My Mommy is gone...

I'm so so shocked, sad, tired and frustrated. My Mommy passed away this Monday morning after almost 3 months of the bowel obstruction which made her spend 18 days on the hospital and the rest at home. She ended with a multiple organ failure. Thank the Lord I was with her almost all Sunday and until her last breath at 11:15 am on Monday. It was a devastating and very very sad sight to see...but I begged the Lord that He let me be with her at her very last. She did suffer a lot, although said not to have pain.. just so very tired she could not pick herself up. She passed away her hand in mine.. before that moment I was praying to her, telling her many thanks for everything and telling her how much I love her. And after..when apparently she was not so contious I think she could still hear me because I wiped a tear of her left eye. I can barely belive she is gone.. although is some way I know she went straight to God without doubt, and is were there is no pain, no suffering,no tears, just joy. Please pray for her soul.

Dearest Liz,

My deepest sympathies for the loss of your mom. It has been a long road and you have been such a wonderful loving supportive daughter. To hold her hand as she leaves was such a gift for you both, she has her angel wings now. Remember when one lives in the hearts of those left behind is not to die ~ she will always be with you. I am sure there is still a huge celebration going on of those who have left before her, and now no more pain.

Peace Prayers and Blessings

Love Bonnie

Your current grief honors your mother and what she meant to you; just as your eventual return to a joyful life honors what she would want for you. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Love never dies. Let your mother's everlasting love wrap you in comfort as you work through your grief. ((((Liz))))

My sincere condolences to you and your family, Liz. Thank you for sharing your Mom's journey with us all these months. I too was with my mother when she passed away. Although it was the most difficult thing I have ever done, I consider it a blessing to have been with her as she went Home, just as she was with me when I came into this world. I also believe that she could hear me during the last hours.

May you find comfort that your Mom is with her Father in Heaven. And may your hurting heart be healed in time, and the pain replaced with fond memories of your mother and her courageous fight.

Hugs and Prayers,
Monika

What a blessing you are as a daughter to your mom. What a blessing she is to you.
I am so very sorry for your loss. However, I know how beautiful it is to be with someone when they are called "home".
God bless you. Thank you for sharing your mom's story with us these months. Take care.

Liz - I just signed on and saw your name appear first and now I sit here with tears streaming down my face because I can feel your pain through your words. You've talked so lovingly about your mom for as long as I've been on the support site - what a wonderful gift you had to have that relationship. I am sure you brought her much joy.

The scene from Steele Magnolia's popped in to my head as I read about you holding her hand as she left - when M'Lynn tells her friends what an honor it was to be there with Shelby when she came in to this world and then again when she left it. Your mommy was with you from day one and you were able to be there for her when it was her time to go.

Another warrior has received her wings.

My deepest sympathies. Many hugs for you and your family.

Dear Liz,

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I, too, lost my mom this year. She had been in care for almost two years, and thankfully, did not suffer much during that time.

It's painful to lose a parent, and my heart goes out to you. She is in a better place now.

It touched my heart so deeply when you prayed with your Mom.... what comfort to know we can communicate with God and in return He communicates his love to us! God bless you during this time and may the Lord give you peace. Tricia

Liz, I am so very sorry, what a warrior you have been for your mother. I am sure the last thing your mother heard was your voice before she was in the presence of our Lord.
You and your family are in my prayers,
Jan
