Does anyone have experience with a loved one crying, more like sobbing often near the end of life? My mother is near death and barely talking anymore. The other day though she managed to get out "about the future" when I asked her if she was worried about anything......because she cries a lot when people try to comfort her. I'm trying to reassure her that I love her etc. I've read scripture to her and the chaplain has visited her more than once but she always gets emotional. Also, it's like a "dry" cry, hardly any tears which is normal now, but it's tearing me apart. She's really pitiful. Some of you may remember she was really difficult with her dementia and we had no relationship left. However, during the last couple of weeks we've had a couple of sweet conversations and she's actually told me she loves me too. She's too weak to fight now plus Hospice has her medicated some to keep her more comfortable. She's always been a worrier and I suppose it's natural to be a little apprehensive about passing over although I know she's a Christian and ready.
