    Default Bad phone call (ot, death mentioned)

    I have been expecting this phone call for some time. The doctor's thought that my mom would not live out the winter. My sister called to tell us that mom's last days are here. I wish I could fly out and see her again one last time like I did with dad. I have the flight to go home for the funeral paid for but I can't risk that she would hold on and so I will not see her alive again. The last time I saw her she opened her eyes a couple of times in the 2 hours I was there.

    In some ways it is good that I don't have a lot of memories of my mom in a vegetative state. Alzheimers sucks.

    Thanks ladies. This is hitting me a lot harder then I ever thought it would. I have known since December that my mom's time was very limited but knowing the end is here is so hard. When Robbie came home from school yesterday he came in and gave me a hug so I wouldn't be sad (Sean told him what was going on), he is such a sweet and caring boy.

    I think part of why it may be so hard is Sunday's baby loss memorial and seeing Bailey's grave and then yesterday was my dad's birthday, he would have been 78. Life is so fragile.

    This is so difficult. I lost my mom 2 years ago and there are no words that will make it any better. You just have to focus on the positive and fun times you had with her. It is still very very difficult for me. There will be days that will be very difficult and days that will be okay. I'm so sorry you can't be with her during this time. My mom passed away and I wasn't by her side as well, but you cannot dwell on that. I'm so sorry!

    *hugs* DH's grandmother died a few years back from the same thing. I only knew her at the end but it was hard just the same. I feel for you.
