sad news

Hi All

I have sad news, my mum passed on Sunday, it was very peaceful.  I had made a promise to my mum that I would always nurse her and would never let her go into a nursing home or die in hospital and I am very pleased that I was able to fulfill my promise.

It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but I am glad as I was able to spend time with my mum on my own, we had some lovely chats and shared memories, 

I was with her when she took her last breath, I held her hand as she went to her resting place.

Her funeral is next Thursday, we wanted it before Christmas, in the new year I and my dad will clear and sort things, but for now that is not important.

I am now home and to be honest I am glad, I do not know how I did it, I just told my body that I would ignore my illness and I will pick it up later, this time is for my mum and my problems do not exist. I spent last night in a bed the first time in over a week, and I slept, at one time I had been awake for over 36hrs, I am now very tired and have a lot of pain, I knew I would suffer for it. So I am going to take it very easy and rest and hope it will not take my body long to recover.

Thank you all for all your kind words and thought you have sent me

Hi Debbie. I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your mum. We all know it's going to happen sooner or later but that doesn't lessen the pain. Thinking of you.
Kind regards, Brian.

Hi Debbie! I am so sorry for your loss. I know just how you feel, having just lost my younger brother Greg, earlier on December 4th. All I can say is that there is comfort in that you did all that you could for your mum and that you were there for her right to the very end. The pain is very real but love is not lost just because the person is not there to receive it anymore. You will always be her daughter and she will always be your mom. God will help you through this parting Debbie and the pain Will lessen through time.
