HI Ladies!

A while back my mom requested me to be on this board with you all. So when she did come to the point where she couldnt post, I would be able to keep you all updated. I know you all have other virtual resources but thought I would just come here.

My mom has been a great teal fighter like many of you! What an inspiration to us all. My mom has had this dreadful disease now for 4 years. Her spirits have been high, a true fighter. She has told me alot about this board and how she loved coming here for comfort and support. She has made many friends! Thanks.

I know sometimes the downer posts can make you feel like there is no hope. But there is hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our strength and comfort.

I felt the need to come here tonight and let you all know my mom is now in hospice. Not to get you all down but for support and prayers. I know she appreciates you ALL!

You ladies are a very strong group of gals! I come here from time to time and read your updates! Keep fighting! :)

May God keep ALL of you in his loving arms!

jepsj5,
I know your mother through another board, I believe, and I really respect her courage and persistance with this disease. She was planning a fishing trip a few weeks ago, was she not? I hope she got to go. I am very sad to hear this news. Your mother is a very special lady.
My prayers are with you and your family.

Thank you for keeping us looped in. Libby seems like a such a strong, kind, compassionate person. I Could tell from her posts that she has amazing faith in God, her family and friends. I never sensed any fear or anger in any of her posts. You are blessed to have her as a mother. Will be keeping her(and all of you) in my thoughts and prayers.

But I am so sorry to hear that your dear mother is in hospice. She is a true fighter and an inspiration to all. Equally important, is that your faith in our Lord Jesus Christ is paramount through all of this, and it blesses me to know that you and your mom will have the hope and comfort only He can provide.

My prayers will continue for all of you. Sending love and hugs as well.

God Bless.

I read your post yesterday and was going to respond but I just couldn't. I know how hard it is for you and you have all my prayers coming your way.

Thank you so much for posting and letting us know what is happening.

I remember when your mother and mine entered the same trial...she was number 18 and my Mom number 23 I think......My prayers are with you and your Mom right now.....Having been through this, all I can say to you is to just be there with her. I had some seriously profound, life changing interactions with my Mom when she was in hospice.....she gave me some of the greatest gifts of my life during that time. Please send her my best. Take care of yourself. Sincerely, Lisa

Dont worry about bothering me...all the thoughts,prayers support mean the world...so dont think its a bother. And I feel blessed to know you all care about her so much to ask how she is doing.

As of right now, she has been in hospice for 2 weeks and 4 days. My mom is a trooper like many of you! The pain meds are keeping her comfortable for the most part. Hospice has been great for my mom. And your right Lisa, my mom and I have shared alot of special moments. I had surgery 3 weeks ago and my hubby took a few days off so he could watch the kids and I spent time with my mom alone. It was wonderful! I will cherish those days forever. She is my best friend. The one I leaned on for advice or just a girl chat. :) I think it will be hard once she is gone. But I know she will be in a better place. And knowing that I will reunit with her one day is even a better feeling.

I hope you all dont mind but I plan to read her the comments here. Thanks again for all your prayers, support and kind words.

Jessica :)

I am so glad you are getting to spend special time with her and I know when she is gone it is going to hurt, but you going to be with her again one day and until then you have those special moments to hold on to.
