Thanks so much for responding raw, now I have a little better idea of what to expect. I visited my mother yesterday, and she was able to eat, which made me feel better. But I find when I talk to her on the phone, I can hardly keep from crying. I have always been strong for her through the last four years, but I am finding it very hard to be strong, now that we are on the last leg of her journey with this illness. Maybe in dealing with all the medical stuff, and doctors I haven't allowed myself time to think about this time, hopefully I will get it all cried out, and will be able to be strong for her when she needs me most. I love her so much, and I can't imagine my life with out her. She is not only my mom, but my best friend! My dad died when I was only 13 months old, so my mom has been my all.
I really appreciate being able to have friends here, who help others with their experiences, and support us in our time of need. Thanks again.
