Anticipatory grief and having to say goodbye to my Mom.
My mom's life will be ending soon. Her health was too frail to endure the strength for recovery after her surgery. I have the chance to spend one more Mother's Day with her before she starts her journey home to God. All artifical life sustaining measures will come to an end and she will be put in God's hands. This site has been a godsent for me and I thank everyone over the past two years who have helped me endure the care in my mom. I am so sad as I write this and hope she did not suffer in the ICU while the doctors attempted a successful recovery. If mother's day was not approaching she would be gone soon, but I want this last time to have her with me on Mother's Day. I hope I am not being selfish, prolonging her death a little bit longer.
