Oh my sweet Momma

bazooka111 profile image

I have not been on here ... I am just lost. My sweet Momma is fading friends. I am sitting her bedside as I write -- in the quiet. Her swallowing has slowed down to very little each day, and I am not getting much down at all. My heart is shredding ... As much as I thought I was ready for this, I am not. Please whisper prayers.

Dear Kim, my heart goes out to you. I hope you are not doing the day to day care anymore, as I have said before, it’s time to just be her daughter now. Nothing else matters, for her or you.

Sending very large hug and much love

Lots of love

Oh Kim! Think of you both often and have read through your silence.Yes. Hang in there by her side for as long as you can. Do what you can for your lovely Momma while she can swallow.

I have been there when it fails. Say your goodbyes while you can.

I am praying for you both.

Farewell to your strong, determined and beautiful mum from me!

Big hugs to you both.

Im the one with CBD but lost my own mother 8 weeks ago not to COPD . I sat in the hospital with her everyday and nights when the staff would let me .I whispered in her ear all the best times I had growing up and how loved she made me feel It’s all you can do is just be there with her . Nothing can prepare you for the last breath but you being with her will be such a comfort to you both .. sending love and hugs ❤️

Dear Kim my heart is breaking for you, I remember this time so clearly it is so hard. Just keep talking to your dear sweet momma and hold her close. When the time is right and you will know when make sure she knows that you will be ok and that she is free to be ok. Tears are flowing as I write this, it’s so hard. You are both in my thoughts and prayers. Sending you both so much love and hugs. Love Sarahx

Sorry to hear that. But, we are never ready for this. Painful to watch people near to us as they slip into this state. I remember my dad's struggles. Make sure that she is not choking on her food. When that happens, some of it will go into her lungs resulting in aspirational pneumonia. That was my dad's end stage. There is little we can do other than be by their side and make them feel loved and cared for. I wish her peace. And, I wish you strength.

T-val in reply to bazooka111

Very much the same as you Kim. Mum still having some good days (hours) though so we are making the most of them while we can. Her weight loss has been rapid recently too as she's not eating much at all. I hope you find some comfort knowing there are so many people on here thinking about you, knowing exactly what you are going through. Sending lots of love. Tracie xx

Tracie -- I sit bedside tonight with my sweet Momma. She can no longer swallow food, and ice chips now for two days. She has lost all her weight -- lots of difficulty in mucus build up -- my heart is shredding tonight. Hugs to you - Kim

Katiebow profile image

Dear Kim, it’s so hard to witness the decline of someone you love so dearly. At the end of the day we all have to face up to the fact that we are not immortal and when the time comes it is an honour to support the person you hold so dear, as their life slips away. I felt very honoured to have been there for my husband in the knowledge I had tried my very best to make his life as good as it could be and I know for sure that he was grateful that I was there to offer the love and support he deserved.

You have been such a rock for your dear Mom and she too will be feeling the love and support you have always showered her with. It may be that she is tired of the difficult last few years she has endured and happy to leave the suffering, I think that’s how I would feel at this stage of the disease.

I hope this message is of comfort to you.

Sending love

Kate xx

I have been thinking about you and your Momma. I hope and pray you are doing as well as can be. You have been such an outstanding carer for your Momma, and she has been such a great patient. Just stay close to her and let her no how much you love her.

Hugs and prayers for both of you. Hang in there.


bazooka111 profile image

Hi Dick -- Thank you for reaching out to me. We are hanging in there as best as we can. She isn't taking much down -- it breaks my heart. Ice chips, some yogurt today (not much), pureed applesauce like pouches that I've stocked up on ... she is no longer able to use a straw --- she has lost so much weight -- skin and bones at this point. I just dont know how long her body can keep doing this. Again, thank you for checking in -- my heart is shredding every day. ((hugs)) Kim
