Still in a holding pattern...

Well, Steph's birthday (Feb 12th) came and went, Valentine's Day (14th) came and went and here we are on the 15th. Mom is mostly comatose at the moment and I think we're in the last phase as her breathing pattern has changed. She's in no pain but it is difficult to watch her grasp for breath. Hospice did a great job of preparing us for this stage - it's much worse on the family than it is on her. I just medicated her to hopefully ease the breathing.

The human soul is amazing though. She'll go when she goes. I just pray that she remains in no pain.

  1. My prayers are with you and your family. Your mother is at peace and that is important. I envy you for the relationship that you had with your mother - something that I never had. My mother passed away 4 year ago and there is not a day that I don't think of her and understanding her as well.

    Peace to you all.
