My mom has become unresponsive, won't drink, won't eat, and all bodily functions seem to be coming to an end. I feel bad because she is going and bad because she has stayed this long in that condition. I am coming apart at the seams little by little and now is not a time I can afford to do that. Keep me strong, friends. These next few days should be the end. Pray for a quik and peaceful passing. She has suffered so very much. Pray especially for my father. They have been married 63 years and have not been apart except when he was drafted. Oh, God. I wish I were someone else today.

You are such a good kind soul to be there with her. Deep inside she knows you are there. I will pray for her peaceful release.

This sounds like a really hard time for you and your family. I will be thinking of you and your family. I wish you the ability to do what you absolutely need to do, but don't feel as if you need to be a superwoman. It's ok to be sad, or even crazy in these situations. It's ok to ask friends for help, it's ok to tell people you just have to lose it for a while so someone else will have to take over. I'm sure what ever happens you will be a great daughter to your mother and father in their times of need and they will be thankful for your presence and help and comfort however stressed out you feel.

Just checking in with you. Mom is still with us, but the hospice nurse says any time now and no more than 3 or 4 days at the most.



I so appreciate your love and kind thoughts. Your shared strength and prayers are working. I am hanging together relatively well and so is my poor little Daddy. My sister has come in from Texas and is being a blessing. My boys are resigned, but oddly enough, my husband is taking it hard.



Thanks again for your kindness, Friends.

Mom died about an hour ago. It was peaceful and now she is no longer in pain.



I too am at peace and want to thank each of you for your support. I am entering unknown territory, but my family is together. We will make it.



What is proper etiquete for us at this time? I have no idea. I know hiding won't be acceptable, which is my first impulse. Can anyone give me suggestions?

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Life. That's good that she went peacefully and that you have support of family. I can't imagine how hard it would be, or what one would do to cope. My thoughts are with you though.

Life2K, I am so glad that your mom went peacefully and that her suffering is over. But I am also so sorry that you lost her.



I think it is OK to hide a little. Don't let anyone make you fell like you "should" be doing something...this is your time to work through your grief as you need to.
