My mother is 96, and I think she is close to giving up the fight. Please pray that this process will be peaceful and relatively easy for her. Thank you.

The time has been long, but I can't say that it has been good. I always worried that when it came right down to it I just wouldn't care, but I do. I guess life is strange that way. I can't really relate to losing a mother, but I can relate to a very old, frightened lady who needs love.

I cant imagine having one's parent for over 90 years - I have 2 school chums - one from grade 5 - her mother must be 100 now and the other chum her mother is well into her 90s because she was a year older than me and she had an older sister... sadly her mom has dementia - the grade school friend never mentioned any infirmities or mental challenges with her mother - her sister is real estate agent in Ontario and Mom lives in Ontario too...
I am so very sorry Chris that you are dealing with this - no matter it is always difficult.
Imagine in the biblical times people had children at 80 and lived to 140 or more years... with no health care and we with all kinds of medical research cant cure dementia cant grow new heart can cure cancer cant prevent stroke just to name a few

Always difficult no matter the age or the other circumstances. Sorry you don't have happier times to reflect on. When my mother passed the sense of loss was overshadowed at the sadness of what might have been, but wasn't, and never would be. I'll be thinking about you as you go through this next little while.

I had the same type of reaction to my mother's passing as Miz Lilly. I was 14 when I came to live with my Dad because of circumstances within my family. Lordy I miss him! But when my mother passed, I found myself feeling - "When my mother passed the sense of loss was overshadowed at the sadness of what might have been, but wasn't, and never would be." Only those who have experienced this can know how sad it is. If those are your circumstances, God love you. I trust He will watch over you in the coming days and weeks. God Bless you.

It's so very difficult when the time is longer than what seems to be needed. May God make this easy for everyone.

I wish, for my mother's sake, that this process were easier. She is having a very difficult time with pain, anxiety, and general regret. Someone else has Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. They live 3,000 miles away and have not been able to grasp the true situation. I do believe that things are finally going in the right direction where she will receive the palliative care that she needs. For myself, it has been an amazing journey of deepening understandings of love. Essentially I lost my mother over 90 years ago, yet there is still this human being who needs love and care, and is, to a great extent, my responsibility. God is amazing in His love.

I guess it is still HONOUR THY FATHER AND THY MOTHER - I pray for a peaceful entry into whatever God's mercy allows.

I agree, Chris, God is amazing in His love and has shown you how He is conforming you into the image of His son by equipping you with the ability to put aside anger and hurt and do right by honoring her as Shirley says. Continued prayer for you and for her.
