It finally happened, after her 30+ year suffering with Multiple Sclerosis - my dear, sweet mother left this world on May 11, 2019 at 8:30pm. The part of her body responsible for keeping her lung breathing gave out. She went into cardiac arrest a few times and only kept alive by a machine. Her eyes never shut after that and where looking at nothing for almost 11 hours.
The doctor said they can prolong her life with drugs, but with the lack of air during the arrests - only a day to a week. and she will never be the same. So we decided to remove the breathing tube and about half and hour she succumbed
We are besides ourselves and dad is taking it hard. They were married for 41 years. Dad is trying to socialize rather than isolation but it hard consider it happened less than 12 hours ago.
I will miss you mom and love you so much. crying

So sorry for your loss, Nei. I know what it's like to loose a parent, as I am without both of mine (Mom died in 2008, and Dad in 2017). It's never easy, but the healing process does get better with time. Keep your Mom in your heart, and remember all the good times you shared with her. Take her with you, Nei, and she'll always be watching over you. Wishing you and your family the best during these hard times.emotion_hug

I'm sorry for your loss. I understand how hard it is. I lost my mom in 2009 and my dad just last October, with him I was the one to make the decision to take him off life support and let him go. It's never easy losing a loved one. Prayers for you and your family at this difficult time.
It has been a rough week. The burial is Saturday May 18 in a private gathering. I will say farewell to my mother for the last time. sad
I appreciate the support have given me. I know you all experience a loss at some point - now it is my turn and no amount of grieving is going to back back. After we lay her to rest, it's time to move on. I will miss her and loved her very much. I will always have memories and photos of her.
Like dad says, we need to associate, not isolated. He dealt with firsthand when his mother died. His dad was heartbroken and didn't feel like doing anything anymore till he passed away a few years later.
Wishing you all my best for Saturday and all you an your family need to do. I’ll be thinking of you.

I am nervous as hell about tomorrow. I haven't seen her all week, now we are burying her in about 15 hours from now. I hope I can make it through. I have been to funerals before, but it was never this close to me.
If I ever need a good hug, now is the time for it.
emotion_hug I know i am alittle late but you have my deepest sympathy Nei. I have seen my farewell way to many times then I can count myself so I understand. I hope all went well Saturday and everyone here cares for you deeply just reach out if you need a word or two or a shoulder to shed tears on.
