Mother In hospital again - urgggh!

I know it isn't going to get any better, but a bit of respite would be nice!!!!

rant over
Oh Nick, rant all you want to us here. I am thinking of you, Show your mother how much you love her and rant to us.  As you probably know, my mother's suffering is now over and the loss seemed to hit more last week (it is now just over 3 weeks ). My sister and I both had a cry over the phone yesterday. It is some comfort to know we were there for her right up to the end but we both miss her so much.

Brian,

I haven't been reading this thread in quite a while. I do recall you writing about your mom a month or two back. I'm sorry to hear of her passing, know from personal experience how difficult it can be. My mother died two years ago next month, my father last January. Took me long time to deal with Mom's passing, not sure I've even really faced my father's death yet...

Warm hugs to you and your sister,
Rob

Thanks for your kind thoughts Rob, Connie & Nick.
I changed over to the "Those who mourn" thread and did not think to let those on this thread know that Mum's suffering was over. So many wonderful threads and so hard to keep up with them all. So many reasons to be thankful to BBM for bringing me to this community. I will continue to monitor this thread and my thoughts and prayers are with those who are still caring for loved ones.

I believe in the power of collective hope and prayer so I'm hoping for a little help...

We found out last week that our 20 year old Godson (to the right of Joe) has a brain tumor.  He is truly one of the bright lights in our life and in the world; a peaceful and happy soul with compassion for every one and every thing.  Please send up a prayer for a good outcome; he will have surgery on Tuesday. 


Thank you all so much,
Lydia
You complete me.
