It has been a while since I posted. My mom is dying, please keep her in your prayers and ask God to comfort her and give her peace. I've contacted hospice and they are going to her house today. For those of you who know her story and me, thank you for all of your support over the past three years it means more than anything to talk to people who understand your situation. Please pray for my father, who has not handled this well since my mom was diagnosed and for my brothers who are coming to terms with the situation. It has been a rough few months, but I am honored to have been my mother's caretaker.

    So Sorry
    So sorry to hear that your mom is so ill. I don't know your story, but since you have posted here know that your mom must have been fighting the fight that we all are.

    May she be pain free and may all of you find peace in your hearts.

    My sympathy
    I guess I know some of what you are going through. My Dad passed away on Aug.15th and my Mom is declining daily with cancer. The Hospice folks do not think she has a long future.She is angry and in denial at this time but I hope she can come to some inner peace.

    You, your family, and your Mom are in my thoughts and prayers.You have my deepest respect for being your Mom's caretaker.

    So horrible
    I can't even imagine what you're going through right now, but i have no doubt it isn't pleasant. I can only wish that she doesn't linger in pain when the time comes for her to go, and that she's able to pass peaceably.

    Many hugs,

    I am so sorry
    I pray for comfort and peace for your mother as well as for those of you left watching her journey. I know you have been a great comfort to her, and that beautiful grand baby has probably been the light of her days! I know my grand baby is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time! Just remembering her visits when she's gone is enough to lift my spirits! Make sure you take care of yourself in the days ahead and don't be too hard on yourself, ok?

    I'm sorry it's coming to this for your mom and, yes, I will pray for everyone involved. Take care and you can be proud that you were her caretaker.

    Hugs to you my dear,

    I was also my mother's
    I was also my mother's caregiver and was honored to do so. We had hospice for her last days as well.
    We posted this note above her bed during those days;
    "Tread softly here, for this princess is about to meet her King!"
    I am so sorry for what you are going through and will keep you in my prayers.
    God Bless,

    It is very sad what you are
    It is very sad what you are going through, I am so sorry to hear this. But...know that it is best for your Mom because she will not suffer anymore. It is not easy, and not going to be easier after she leaves, I know that! And I'm not trying to convince you either that things will be all right, as they won't...but always keep in mind, your Mom will have a better condition. I wish you strength, and please email me anytime you feel like-- I was also a caretaker of my Mom. And I know totally what you are going through. I would be regretting right now if I wasn't there for her at the time when she was dying...and it's horrible, and bad memories are haunting me, but I am still glad I was there for her. Be strong, and spend every minute with her, and hope that she won't suffer too long.

    Ps: my email address: sharpy102 at yahoo dot com (I don't know whether we can write out email addresses here, or not, that's why I write it this way...)
