Completely agree Crystal that whenever something good happens, we think that if she would have been here it would have been great.

Hi guys, its been awhile since I posted. Been really busy with work- guess thats a good thing because it means less time for me to dwell on things. My sister just found out she’s pregnant with her fourth kid. Really happy and excited for her, but also very sad that my mom will never meet her grandchild. Tears were shed. I guess this is the reality for us now... happy moments will always have a little bit of sadness. Thats one of the things Im struggling with- everytime something great happens in our family or I achieve one of my personal goals I think “Mom should be here to enjoy this”

I also did not tell my mother that how much I love her. I always took her for granted. 

I can only hope to say sorry now once after I leave the world. Sorry for not taking care of her.

I would say that your mom was fortunate that she did not suffer that way. Sometimes a person will suffer for years before they die. I am certainly glad that I got to be with my mom at the end and tell her that I loved her every day, but it was horrible watching her suffer, to constantly watch her gasp for breath, and then for me to know what all of that suffering was leading to. I haven't known peace for may years. I was happier even when my mom was on Hospice than I am now. That wasn't fair to her.

Today is another day when I woke up and realized that my mom is dead. It's a horrible thing.

Theresa, you didn't get to tell your mom that you love her, but I promise that she knew. She knew as well as my mom knew that I love her.
Comment by Theresa on October 17, 2018 at 5:51am

I know you know I did not mean it in that way, but of course not, my question, should I be thankful she did not suffer and lay in a bed and me have to watch her suffer and be able to do nothing as so many had to do on this site.  But as you know is it a double edge sword, you all got to be there with your moms, and let them know you loved them, I did not, as my mom used to say the Lord can take you at any time anywhere and thats exactly how he took her without notice.  We all have heavy hearts or we would not be posting on here, each one of our stories different with the same ending.

Theresa, I don't know if we can be thankful that our mom's died under any circumstances. 

Comment by Theresa on October 16, 2018 at 11:29am
True Brett
Should I be thankful? My mom died in an instant she was herself until the last minute. Some say I’m lucky I didn’t have to watch her suffer. But my mom used to always say we suffer everyday in this earth.
I would have been right at her bedside if she was sick. I would not have left her side. But our Lord chose another path for her and I.
You know it aggravates me when people say do you know how lucky you are actually I hate them and I really have nothing to say to them but is that what you think You’ll see
Comment by Brett Bowman on October 16, 2018 at 10:47am
No, she didn't everyone, good or bad, dies. Few people have an easy death.

Wow Avi I believe in karma but I’m not sure that your mom has done anything wrong present or past that would make her have gotten that disease
Comment by Avi on October 16, 2018 at 8:11am

Thanks Theressa. Yes hope the questions will be answered. In my country, lot of importance is given to Karma and it is believed that whatever you sow and you will reap the same. Not sure how this karma cycle is analyzed and who decided if this was a bad karma. If I believe that my mom got this horrible disease due to her past karmas then it is very disturbing because she was such a nice lady. Then people say that it is karma of past lives. Hard to understand but need to believe.

Feeling alone

I’ve been through a lot. In 2014, my father became officially bedridden on Christmas day due to Frontotemporal dementia and my sister was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. She went through operations, a colostomy bag, and 6 months of chemo. In 2015, my husband’s play went to Broadway, and for that play he was nominated for a Tony award, as was the play itself, the playwright, and 3 of the actors.We went to the Tony award ceremony on June 7, and the next day, out of the blue, he told me he…See More
