Worst Mother's Day Ever

Welcome to MeetAnOstoMate.org
Sun May 09, 2021 8:34 am

The old 'Circle of Life' seems more like a dead end sometimes.  My Mom died late yesterday afternoon from an inoperable aortic aneurysm, rather unexpectedly.  Her lung cancer was in check with the Keytruda, and she successfully shrugged off COVID in just a couple days, and was sent home from the hospital on Thursday with a 'thumbs up'.  She woke up yesterday morning, complained of not feeling 'right', and hit the floor.  She had requested not to be put on life support, which tore up my Dad pretty good, but after some discussion with her Docs, her sisters convinced them to try a respirator.  She died within minutes of that attempt.  Guess she showed them!

Not trying to bring anyone down on Mother's day, but rather remind those with Moms still living to make it a special day......you never know how many more such days you'll get.  We all tend to take things like our Mother's love for granted.......it's easy to do.  So take the time to thank your Mom today (and every day) for all she's done while you can..........cuz you may not get the chance to do it, or say goodbye, when the time comes. 

 

regards,

bob

My condolences Bob, my mom died just over a week ago and it's been rough. My dad is lost and completely spaced out after losing his wife of 58 years. Hang in there and be there for your dad. May our mother's Rest In Peace. Take care Bob.

Bob, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. Everyone on this siite has felt your concern during her recent health battle. I imagine her illness gave you incentive to show your love to her, maybe more than you would have otherwise. I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time by remembering all the good times. You have so many friends on this site who look forward to your posts for information and humor. We will all be thinking of you and your family.    Lucy

Hello Bob.

Sorry to hear of you loss, but I agree wholeheartedly that we should not take any of our family for granted. Perhaps every day should be the equivalent of 'mother's day'.

Best wishes

Rod I am sorry for your loss it is one of the hardest things to face. They say time heals things but I disagree time eventually makes it easier to live with. It does take awhile for some of the pain to pass.

   I agree with all the sentiments pouring out. My brother's 42nd wedding anniversary was May 5th, that night his wife died. Their four kids and grandchildren are with him and today is mother's day and soon will come the internment. Not easy on the family. 

 We are with you in spirit ....mountain.

I am so sorry about your mom 😔 Mine has been gone since 1998. I would give anything to just spend an hour with her. You really have been hit hard lately.  I do hope you get to having a little more happiness in this crazy ride we call "life."  Please take care.
