Update on Mom

First of all, I want to thank everyone who has been so sweet to send Mom cards, good thoughts and prayers.  She appreciated them very much.

Mom is dying.  I can’t put it any other way.  She is not expected to regain consciousness and is being put into hospice until she goes.  The doctor told Dad it could be tomorrow or it could be two weeks.

Please keep my Dad in your prayers.  He’s going to be lost without her.  After 49 years of a very loving marriage, this is going to be the toughest thing he will ever have to go through.

If Mom makes it to her birthday on the 24th, she will be 67.  I don’t think she’ll be here to see it though.

Yes, I am hurting right now.  Knowing you will never see or hear your mother again is very hard.  Many of you have gone through this and know how I feel.

    Oh, Benita…I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. I’ve been praying for her and wondering how she was doing but didn’t expect this. Will you be traveling to be by your dad’s side during this difficult time? I’ll keep your mom, dad, and you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs!

    I’m so very sorry to hear about your Mom, and yes, I have been through it. I hope you are able to spend time with your Dad, and that he has family, friends and activities nearby to fill the huge gap some.
