My mom passed on Monday morning surrounded by her family. I had
received a call Sat. at 4am that she was back in the hospital. We
managed to get on a standby flight and spent Sat. and Sunday with her
while she was still fully aware. She wanted nothing but to go home. At
first, it didn't seem that it would be possible, since it was a sunday
and there was difficulty getting the pain meds, but the hospice nurse
moved heaven and earth and made it happen. It was was she wanted and
she is now with my Dad and at peace. I will be home on Friday.
I's so very sorry Linda. I'm glad you were able to be with her
and she was able to be home. My sincere condolences to you and
the whole family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
I hope your mama had a good life that was full of love.
I'm so sorry... How blessed that you were able to get there in time to be
with her in her last hours. Every time I hear another story about Hospice
workers/volunteers... I am more and more impressed with how well they do
their job. To be able to allow your mom to pass at home in the way she
wanted is truly a blessing indeed.
Prayers to your entire family.
Thank God for those hospice nurses, I don't know what we would have done
without ours either. Hugs to you, my dear. Rest when you get home, you'll
need the energy. I'm so glad your mother can rest now, and be with your
Dad. And to have what she wanted at the last, how marvelous for her.
