Yes. Chris it does make you wonder. So true the love for your mom is like no other, and their love for us the same, thats why i think its so hard, when we lose that unconditional love, i know they still are with us , but its not the same. And thank you Chris for your kind words.

Sheryl... 3 months is so soon in--of course you're still grieving--duh!!  It's barely been a season...  You and your family will be in my thoughts.  Do have a good birthday considering the circumstances.  At least we're able to have birthdays (even if we take them for granted sometimes!)!

Comment by Chris Wool on Tuesday

Aww, Valerie.  I'm so sorry to hear this :'(.  God bless you and your family.  I just get so angry when I hear about how hospitals/MDs "fall down on the job."  They get up and get to live while we and our loved ones are subjected to their completely life-altering errors (in diagnosis, dispensing of medicine--everything).  Regardless, I hope that you and your mom had some comfort those last few days (as she took care of you).  I had a similar situation with my mom toward the end, and I always wonder what could have been done differently.  The love for one's mom is like no other, that's for sure.  Not even close...

My mom went to the hospital last january for what she thought was the flu, and having trouble breathing. Then in july she had a bowel blockage, and after the surgery, they werent giving her inhaler, and i had to tell them she uses it every 4 hours at home, and they did a chest x ray and the found a  4.6 mass on her left lung, then august at the lung surgeon she showed us two images of her lung one from january 4th 2015, and one from july 2015, she said they didnt look much different, my mom and i are were shocked, that nobody ever told us of the image from january, in january it was a 1.3 nodule, in july a large mass to close to her heart to operate, and refered to hospice, then the end of september i caught a virus, and my mom was fine, she was taking care of me, then 3 days later she got it and she died a week later after hospice overdosed her on morphine not for pain but for breathing.

Thank you Margie. Prayers and Hugs.

Oh Cheryl, Happy Birthday, and i  am so sorry for what your going through. I have been reading that sometimes when we really just start to really grieve when the reality sets in, that others are already moving on and think we should be doing so too. Well nobody can tell us how to feel, or how long we should grieve. A new friend said the grieving never really gets better. So thank god we have this place to come and grieve. I cant believe my mom died, and that i am now alone in this world, and the pain of missing her right now is to much. I am praying for us all. 

Comment by sheryl gay on Tuesday

Today is my birthday and my mom would have taken me to lunch. My husband doesn't understand why I'm still grieving it's been 3 months since I found her in her condo. It's hard to grieve when family doesn't understand.

Comment by Margie S. on Tuesday

Thank you for the hug Valerie. We are both in pain. I am sending you a hug too.

Why won't any one help me??

Please, please, please!! Why won't  any one help me?? The 20th of this month  is the one year anniversary  of my Jamey being taken  from us, and he still doesn't  have  a  headstone. I have done everything  I  can  but I  admit that I  can't  do it alone. The one I have picked for him and made the non-refundable  down payment is beautiful. It has a picture of him in cameo with a waterfall on black granite. Yes, it's expensive, but why would I give him some cheap thing that just says there's …See More
