I haven't posted a lot lately, but I do check in on everyone. I am about to take off for Ohio to say a final goodbye to my Mom. Actually, she probably won't still be alive by the time I get there. She is 83, and battled chronic leukemia for a while now. I spoke to her on her birthday (Feb 12) and she seemed good. But this weekend, she just gave out. She is now off life support and in the hospital's 'comfort care' room - meaning my sisters and family are just waiting.

Many hugs to all of you. Call your Mom! Vicki

Thanks to all of you. Your support means a lot Mom passed peacefully at midnight last night.We have been driving for a day and a half and are about 2 hours from there now. I sent a message through my sister to tell her not to wait - if she was tired, just let go. Sis said a few minutes later she just quietly stopped breathing.

I promise not to be away so long any more. This has shown me I still need your support, and you need mine.

Many, Many hugs.....Vicki

Hi Vicki,

I was going to say it's good to see/hear from you, but sad under the circumstances. I will be thinking of you as you fly in to see her, hoping that she can actually hold on long enough for you to see her one last time.
It'd be nice, too, when you get back from all this just to hear again from you & how you've been doing, overall.

You take care!
Lisa

Vicki, I know this is a very hard time for you. I lost my mom in 2006 while in the middle of one of my own recurrence battles and I was unable to be there with her when she passed. I was able to speak with her shortly before she passed, so that sustains. I think of you often and will be thinking of you now in this dark time. Hugs go out to you.

Take comfort in that, its not what we want but its going to be ok, time will heal it.....we love you sweetheart and understand why anyone would take hiatus from here. We know you are with us at all times. Bless you sweetheart, buzz

Your post made my eyes well up, and tears to spill out. It's so hard to say goodbye to your mother, I'm grateful everyday that mine is still here on this earth with me, I call faithfully just to hear her voice. So I am deeply saddened at your loss, may you hold her memories close and may those memories give comfort to your soul. Peace be with you Vicki.{{{HUGS}}}

Vicki,

I hope this comforts you as it did me:

In Memory of Mother

“ I remember thee in this solemn hour, my dear mother. I remember the days when thou didst dwell on Earth and thy tender love watched over me like a guardian angel. Thou hast gone from me, but the bond which unites our souls can never be severed; thine image lives within my heart. May the merciful Father reward the for the faithfulness and kindness thou has ever shown me; may he lift up the light of his countenance upon thee, and grant thee eternal peace. Amen.”

Hugs to you Vicki. I'm glad your mom went peacefully- that has to be very comforting. Sorry you couldn't be there in time, but sounds like you giving her "permission" to let go was a selfless act and one she then felt at peace with, herself.

Take care & hugs to you-
Lisa
