I was at her side as I have been for the last 3 years along with my brother. We are heartbroken but know that she is in the arms of God and my Father again.

Smeltzer31970 ~ My heart goes out to you dear. Please know what a tremendous job you've done taking wonderful care of her. You should be proud. I know she would have told you so. I am struggling at this moment sleeping nightly in a chair next to my Mom's bed in the nursing home. She has hours, or perhaps only days left. She hasn't had food or water for 14 days. I pray everyday God will show her mercy and take her home.

This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. To those caregivers who've traveled this road before me, I read each and every posting and it gives me solice to know I'm not alone in my heartbreak. Thanks to all.

i miss my mother but i was kinda relieved when she died . she had been hallucinating for her last 60 days . her mind was nearly gone . a body doesnt have much purpose without a mind .
sometimes a life is over while theres still a heart beating . you haveta just let them go and try to take their place in the family .

I too offer my condolences; it sounds as though it's been a long, sad struggle for you. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that her battle is over. Please be sure to honor the role you and your brother undertook in caring for her during this time.

I am so sorry, Smeltzer. I know it has been a long last three years. It is sad when a good life has to end with such long suffering. You were a great daughter to her, and I know she appreciated you.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I lost my mom last month. I have never gone through anything so hard and I'm still struggling. I am sending you peace and know your mom is having fun, is healthy and happy in heaven.
