Have any of you had the experience of a loved one seemingly waiting to see a specific person or make it to their birthday or another holiday before they finally let go? Last weekend my mother saw one of her grandsons and his wife who live in another state. This upcoming week her other grandson who lives far away is coming. Then she will have seen everybody. It's our hope this will give her the go ahead to die.
Right now she's doing that thing where we think one day is her very last on earth...and then the next day she perks up. She hasn't been out of bed in a week and a half (not even to get up to watch the pro basketball games she loves). She eats/drinks very little for a time then perks up and eats for a day or two. It's crazy making.
So has it happened to you where your loved one waited for a person/event before leaving this mortal coil? What's a mortal coil, anyway?!
