to jennifer lilttlechild, hope you can see my comment.  I know exactly how you feel. I have my husband, and I am very far away from the family left. They are all in South Africa. When it was the day of the service for my mom, I wanted to run after the coffin, but couldn't.  People can't or won't extend themselves to care - I don't know which one is closer to the truth. Keep on being yourself, just take care of you.  Do what your Aunty would wanted you to do to take care of you.

At the age of 85 my mom was in amazing health, and then one day she just went to bed and was too tired to get up.  After 2 weeks in the hospital they finally diagnosed her with Terminal Leukemia.  She was sent home to live the time remaining with her family.  Mom was a fighter and amazed her Dr when she passed the projected time of her passing.  Somehow her body had put itself into remission and she could possibly have up to 6 more months to live.  Unfortunately, she injured her foot and was given pain medication that made her nauceous and she couldn't continue to eat the high fiber diet.  She was out of remission just as soon as it started.  She lived her final days at Dove House and with her family surrounding her she passed on. 

I have had 3 back surgeries in the past 4 years and she was the one who drove me to Dr appt's and stayed with me all night.  She was my strength to make it through this final and worse operation.


She had 3 children and 4 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren, all who she was active in their care.  She went to sports and watched the little one's play.


We are estranged from our father.  Without my mom I feel so lost and am not sure how much longer I can act like I am so strong and dealing with her loss.  I can't stop crying when I am alone and wonder why she had to leave and not someone who didn't deserve life.  I am so doubting my religion and am weighing all options.  How am I supposed to make it through the next year of agonizing physical therapy without her by my side?  She so wanted to live, she was so worried about us on her death bed instead of her shortened life.  She was such a beautiful person inside and out. 


I really don't think that anything that someone say's will ever matter in helping me to grieve but just having this oppurtunity to write my feelings out and not hold them inside helps for this moment.

Dear Diane,
Possibly it was just the grief your boyfriend's sister is going through at this time. But I can thoroughly understand how it had to have made you feel. Especially after all the time you spent with the family. Hang on the memories of the love that his mother felt for you. I too have a young person in my life, a friend of my son's, whom I have "adopted" as my other child, and I swear I think I would come back and thump my son or his wife if they acted that way toward her after I was gone. Cherish the love she had for you and the good times you shared, and if you need someone to talk to, here I am.

We just lost my boyfriends mom. I loved her as though she was my own. I joked often with her that I had "adopted" her as my mom. She had numerous medical issues and had gotten to the point that she could not drive. I was in a position that I was able to take her to many of her appointments. She had a son and daughter and Trish took her to many appointments too. Sometimes, we both went depending on what the appointment was. I took a job on the side of town that she lived on so I could be close to her so I could take her to these appts. I loved doing it. It was working out quite well. Long story short, she had many issues that deemed her to be in the hospital. One thing led to another and she became worse over time. This past Monday she had some medication that pushed her over the edge, no fault of the meds, or the administrator of the meds. She just never came back. There was an infection that we were never able to combat and her daughter put her on a ventilator to see if we could battle the infection and then take her off. She continued to not improve and the Dr finally told us that there was not enough brain activity to make us think she was fighting to come back. She was advised to get the family together and make a decision about the time to remove the ventilator. We did that and about 48 min later she passed quietly. Earlier that day I was going to drive by her home and just get a little peace and imagine her asking me to come on in. As I was going I ran into her daughter and son-in-law. She seemed very
upset that I was there and I heard Gene say, "what is she doing here?" So I told her that I was at my nail salon and had the urge to come by and see the house. Knowing that she goes by at least every other day I thought if she was there I'd be able to go in and look around and just feel Jan's presence. But I didn't go on since I saw them, I just turned around and followed them to the hospital. Upon getting there the entire rest of the day I got the cold shoulder. Could not understand why she would be so upset. Didn't find out til the next day when she was upset to the point about my name even being mentioned in the obit as Michaels girlfriend. Even though I have been in their lives for the last four years and Jan herself calling me her "other daughter." Michael backed me 100% and tried to explain to his sister what their Mom meant to me and I don't know if her got through to her or not. But he is leaving the "girlfriend" status in. No matter what the future may hold for us, that is the status that I was to his mom. Does anyone have a comment, I'd sure welcome them.

I just returned home from my mother's funeral. We never had the best of relationships, though I loved her dearly. But I can't seem to feel anything now that she is gone. It is so strange. I guess eventually it will probably hit me, but at the moment, I don't know how to act.
