Mom passing away

Recommended Posts

I posted here before when my mom had her stroke. Since then, she was in a rehab center and she was doing remarkably well. My mom was eating, speaking, walking by herself a little, remembering a lot, and almost normal. In fact, the rehab center was speaking to me about bringing her home overnight to see how she would do. That week, I set up Saturday to bring her home and take her back on Sunday. However, on Wednesday I received a call stating that my mom fell in the shower and she would be taken to the hospital. Later that day, I received another call from her doctor saying that there was massive bleeding in her head and that there was no hope for recovery. On March 12, 2009, I made the decision to take her off life support and I said my final words to her.

 

My mom was a fighter until the end. Every time I saw her, she had a smile on her face. I tried my best to keep her comfortable. I did her laundry every week even if I had college schoolwork to do. I managed to visit her as much as I could.

 

Her passing was probably the best for her. Life after coming back home would be dull, boring, and frustrating for her. It would take a lot of effort for her to begin doing her normal activities like driving and working. She was a very independent woman who hated being in the house. She always wanted to go out. I know that where ever she is, she is happy and she is watching me. I will miss her very much.

 

I really appreciate this forum for the support and information I got from the other members. Life after a stroke is tough for everyone, but the moments when everyone is together should still be cherished. Thank you all for your support and I will pray for everyone.
