Subject: Re: PRAYER - My mom (update)

I was really upset and my stomach was very nauseous, it was this
morning too. Dot told me that she might be gone, but she wasn't.
She's a tough one, that's for sure. While Dot took a call from their
other sister Kathy, I was alone with mom, so I looked her in the eyes
said "thanks for being my mom, and I love you" and a few other
things. She had some tears in her eyes again, so I'm sure she knew.

I called dad and put the cell phone near mom's ear so he could say
goodbye and everything that he needs to say. I figured she needed to
hear, one last time, the voice of her husband and the father of her
girl. He was really upset which made me more upset, because no one
wants their parent upset.

So now it comes down to waiting. Today before we left mom grabbed our
hands and looked wide eyed at me and Dot. She's not gone yet, but I
need all the support possible, and I will tell you all when she does
finally pass.

I think I'm more upset seeing her in that condition, struggling so
hard to breathe. I wish she'd go because then she won't be in any
pain, but she's hanging on still, and won't go just yet. Her sats
were low but stable, and her oxygen rose while we were there, even
though she had some small seizures. Dot said that her hypoglycemia
turned into diabetes we think now because of the likelihood that the
cancer spread to her pancreas. Even before the stroke she'd not been
eating well, and I'd had to stand there and make her eat something.
So, it must be all over her body now. I just want her to be at peace,
unafraid, unburdened. I told her "do what you need to do. Relax.
Don't fight, you don't have to fight anymore. Let me care for you

So, I'm kinda hoping mom goes in the night so that she can finally
have no pain, and can shed this ailing body and be free. We left her
favorite Christian radio station on for her, and now I listen to it
in the car. It's kinda funny... many of the songs really relate to
what she's going through. I hope it brings her comfort and peace.

Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support in this difficult time.

> So from my heart of hearts, thank you. All of you.

I've been praying for you and your mom right along.  I pray for you to have
the strength to get through the tasks ahead of you now.  May God bless you
during this difficult time.
