for my Mom and My Family during this difficult time.
As I always say...Blogging Friends are the Best Friends!
At 2:43 a.m this Monday Morning.......
A New Angel entered into Heaven!
Her name is Helen
82 years young!
As my Brothers, Sisters and myself had to come to an
Agreement to turn off the Life Support on our Mom!
It was the most difficult decision that we will ever have
To make in our lives, especially if you have a Family
Not everyone was in agreement...after 30 hours
of living in the waiting room, and sleeping in chairs.
We were all exhausted, hungry, needed showers,
angry, full of questions, grief, what, why, how?
Voices were raised, harsh words were said, feelings
were hurt...and in the end...enough is enough!
We can't go on like this. Mom can't go on like this.
A decision had to be made and their was no winner.
At 2:00 a.m we told the nurse we are done.
We are all physically and emotionally drained.
There was no change in Mom's condition.
She was still having seizures due to lack of oxygen
To the brain. There was no brain activity.
The end has come. The nurse called the Dr. and told
him our decision. Mom was given some pain medication
and a few Minutes later we gathered around as they pulled out
The Life Support tube.
As we stood in a circle, gathered around her bed, and the
Chaplain saying Prayer, Mom's body began to relax, her breaths
got shallow, then at 2:43 a.m she took her last breath!
I cannot Believe she is gone, just like that!
She is in a better place now.
No more pain and suffering.
Mom was living with Parkinson's Disease for the last 30 yrs.
She was confined to a wheelchair, unable to walk and do
certain things on her own. She lived at a Nursing Home for
the last 3 years.
Again, Thank You all for your Friendship. I wish you were
All here so I could give you a Hug.
It's gonna be a Loooonng week! Funeral on Friday.
