Been spending lot spare time at my mothers. She is getting extremely weak. I would like to give credit to my youngest sister. She is of little means, lives in next state yet she quit her job and is staying with our mother 24/7 and attending her every need and want. I mean everything, feeding, bathing and dispensing medicines. I plan on helping her out by gifting her when this is all over unbeknownst to her. She is a great daughter and person. I aspire to be more like her.
Thank you Jim. It’s been heart wrenching seeing her able to walk around 4 weeks ago to only being able to sit up in the picture above and now she is bed ridden. And you’re right I have to remember I’ve been blessed that she lived 93 years. I’ll work on that but I am coming realize at no matter what age there is never a good time to lose a good parent. My mother was the best parent she could be under the circumstances she found herself under throughout her whole life.
Tonight my mother died with us children holding her hand all day. She was truly was a great person who raised 9 of us children. Entertainers, athletes and musicians many idolize these days could not hold a candle to her.
My grandman is 95 and she is in a similar situation, my mom (her daughter in law) is looking after her just like your sister. My aunt (my grandmas's daughter) just comes for a visit once a week. She is still hanging there but things are going downhill. It is a heart breaking when I see her. She was like a mother to me for many years that she looked after me when my parents have left us behind in the 80s.
Thank you all. I have learned there is no good age to lose a parent. I thought because I am 60 and she was 93 it wouldn’t be as bad as losing my father. I really underestimated the impact it’s has on me. Hurt me to my soul.
Lost my mom February of last year, completely unexpected she went to sleep and just didnt wake up had a heart attack in the middle of the night. Only thing that gave me comfort was knowing shes in paradise and ill see her again one day
