My mum RIP

Most of you here know my mother has been in hospital since the end of April

I have had some lovely messages of support from so many of you, so am leaving this brief message.

I have just returned home from the hospital for the last time.

Having stayed most of the day at her bed side, mum waited until she was alone. She lost her fight shortly after midnight and slipped peacefully away.

Although this was expected I have no words to describe the way I feel right now, though I feel sure so many of you who have already been through this will understand.

  • My thoughts are with you at this most difficult time. xx

  • So sorry to hear your sad news. I understand just how you feel as I lost my dear mum in January 1999 and I still miss her so much and think of her every day. In fact losing her was such a shock that I think that may well be what precipitated my Fibromyalgia tho' I can't be sure. I do know that looking after her by myself and working full time did not do my health any favours and moving her about when bathing her and getting her comfortable in bed certainly aggravated my back. BUT...I would do it all over again as I loved her dearly. She was my best friend. Be very gentle with yourself and take all the time you need to grieve. I haven't been on this site for a few weeks as I have been trying to put what little energy I have into trying to clear some clutter ( my house is an absolute tip) so I hadn't picked up that your dear mum was in hospital. My heartfelt prayers are with you as you go through this difficult time. Loving, healing thoughts for you and your family. Hugs Saskia XX

  • God bless you Mal, I feel for you at this sad time, May your mother rest peacefully.

    Much Love Janie xxxx

  • My heartfelt sympathies to you Mal. I empathise with you totally. What a very sad time for you. My mum passed in 2002 and not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I hope your wonderful memories of her will keep you going through these dark days. XXX

  • I am so sorry to hear this, my heart goes out to you. I lost my own mum very recently and there is such a bewildering range of emotions and thoughts about it all.

    There is a Jewish proverb: God could not be everywhere so He gave us mothers. I hope that you will feel a little comforted by knowing how much love and understanding is winging it's way to you.

    Very gentle hugs

  • Oh dear Em, I knew things were on the downward slope , now I am sending you loads and loads of love and strength to get through this most difficult of times.

  • My condolences on the loss of your mum, I lost my mum to cancer 3 years ago, she did the same there was someone with her at all times till my oh was asked to leave the room by cleaning staff, from the time it took her to leave and him to go back in the room she had gone, I think she wanted it that way, we had expected her to go on the Tuesday when my oh and I rushed from Yorkshire to Norfolk she left on the Sunday, gentle hugs for you and your family (((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))))) .

  • Em my sympathy goes out to you for such a big loss. it shows that you had a special love between you, and that is the most beautiful thought you must hold on to. It is so had to watch a loved one suffering, but thank God that she suffers no more, an she is now with the other wonderful angels above. You must draw on the love from those around you, an all these wonderful messages you have been sent. My prayers and a big but gentle hug.:-))))))))))) xxxx

  • Thank you to everyone for your kind words of support and sympathy. I have been completely overwhelmed by so many messages.

    I felt so alone and empty when I left mum in the hospital yesterday morning, all these messages have meant far more than words could ever say, so I will simply say THANK YOU to each and every one of you.

    Love & hugs

  • Really feel for you Em, My Mum passed just over a year ago, I have some idea of how you must be feeling. Even when it's expected it's still a shock.

  • Very sad to hear of your loss. I found it devastating leaving the hospital for the last time, I lay with my mum for hours and she fell asleep in my arms. That was over six years ago now, but I know and feel she is always with me. My thoughts are with you, please take care of yourself.

    Much Love.
