OH Jayleen, I am so glad u wrote back! I have been doing so much researching i can tell u a few things! My daughter and i took care of my mom at home on Hospice and there was a book that gave "signs" of nearing end. Well, i have to tell u.... i called the visiting nurse association after my mom passed and told them among other things.... they needed to re write that book!!! Those were NOT hallusanations (cant spell that word lol) your mom was talking to her deceased loved ones and angels! They were talking to her~ My mom did the very same thing! And i don't think my mom could see either. But she stared at the ceiling~ She was able to tell me things tho... like, look at that goofey guy dancing like crazy up there... and she got angry at someone who was shaking a casket!!!!! Her two brothers who passed a few years ago came... and a very old childhood friend also!! There were soldiers soluting her.... even a "dark" spirit that would not show his face! She told him to leave! I truly believe these were loved ones.. preparing our moms for their leaving. Did your moms heart speed up real fast too? Mine did.. my God.. her bed shook it was so fast and hard! Never in my life did i think i would ever witness these things EVER!!!! My mom knew of my spirituality with those who have passed and my talking to animals (she usually made fun of me when i did this- saying people are going to think your crazy)... but since... there have been animals coming to me all the time now. And my favorites. While taking care of my mom.. in the beginning when she wasn't too sick, i had my sister come to watch over her and i donated my ponytail and bleached my hair platinum! My mom always wanted to see me as a blonde. Well.... she just got more ill as time went on and she nicknamed me her white dove. 2 weeks ago i opened my apartment door and there stood a beautiful white pigeon! I laughed cuz i felt my mom couldnt find a white dove so she sent the pigeon. But I also have noticed there are steps to passing. Either taken here on earth... which it sounds like your mom and mine started while they were still here... and now more while they are on their way to Heaven. My mom worried so much about us too!!!! I know she is still around here. But i have also started to feel her pull away a bit now :( I realize its her journey that's important.. but they will show signs and stay near while their loved ones need them. It seems like they will start their forward journey after we are out of the critical stage. My mom passed on 3-30. You can talk with her anywhere anytime~~~~ I planted a tree in my moms honor and memory and i scattered some of her ashes near... i go there to chat with her too..... let me know if any of this helps.... or if u have any other questions.. cuz i swear i was losing my mind for awhile after... i NEVER knew it would be like this!!!!!!!
