At the beginning of Jan we were told that Mom had 72 hours. About Jan 21 she became totally non responsive. On Feb 2 I was by her side when she took her last breath. It was very peaceful. We laid her to rest Sat, Feb 9 with a beautiful service remembering her as most knew her.... beautiful, lively, loving...she will be dearly missed. I went back to the nursing home to check on her nurse and CNAs that were not there on the day that she passsed...lots of hugs and tearful eyes...they said it's different without Mom being there. I have had days of thinking of things that I need to do and found myself thinking how to fit it in to go to check on Mom. I am starting in a Griefshare class this week to help me. After losing my stepdad in March, my Dad in Oct, and my Mom this month, I know it will help me to walk through the process of grieving in a healthy way. I did not expect my journey with Mom to end this soon... but now she is in the arms of Jesus and totally healed.
