UPDATE: MOM

"I want to go home. I want to die."

She finally said it. I've been ready, maybe even hoping but my father and especially my sister weren't ready. They are now and we all feel like a great weight has been lifted.

We are finalizing arrangements with hospice to bring mom home probably tomorrow, maybe Saturday. Today I have to prepare our den. It's what mom wants. I had my brother-in-law and nephew move out the furniture last night and began washing the curtains (they needed it anyway). Today I'm doing a thorough cleaning including shampooing the carpet (it needed it anyway).

Thanks for being there.

Sean

It's what she wants.
It's what my Mom wanted and she was able to have it, and it made her passing easier for all of us who were there.
Peace

What can I say, I've got a lump in my throat reading this news.

Make her last days, weeks, months the best. But also keep your own health in check.

The incredible strength your mother has is astounding. I'm thinking of you and her every day.

Sean,
Let hospice help guide you through this as they are a godsend. They will make sure your Mother is comfortable and help your family with the transition.

Bless you,

Losing a parent is never easy. I have lost both my parents to Cancer.
My mother had a long time to prepare (almost 10 years, she defied the odds!) and in her last days, she had a chance to tell everyone who mattered to her, her "à Dieux". It's hard to live though but it is the best way to go through it if you must. My father's Cancer was extremely aggressive (diagnosed in mid-August, gone in early October). We didn't have the chance prepare or spend much remaining time with him - he crashed within 6 hours - lucid and talking to a coma while I was there, never to wake up again. My brother was not there and he missed his last days with his dad.

Enjoy your remaining time with her, even if it's just being in the same room! It does make a difference!

My thoughts are with you and your family in this difficult time.

What a hard thing to do. It will be a blessing for her when she goes, though you will hurt.

Sending love and good thoughts.

Sean,

This is a good thing you're doing for your Mom. I just hope when my time comes I have someone as caring as you to see to my needs the way you're doing for your Mom. My thoughts are with you Sean.
