losing my mom

Hi my name is danielle. A few months ago my mom has lung cancer. The cancer quickly spread. They tried to do a surgery but they couldnt remove the part of the lung that they had hoped to. During the surgery they found out that the cancer had spread to her brain. My aunt got a call from the hospital two night ago. The doctor told her that he didnt expect her to make it through the night. I live six hours away from my mom..So i cant stay by her side. At the moment i do not know if my mom is still alive or not. Im in my early teens..i cant lose my mom. Even though i dont see her i still call her and tell her everything..and ask her for advice..Now who do i talk to? My aunt and my grandma have already made funeral arrangements..I cant stand living with the fact that my mothers funeral is already planned. I want to be there when she passes but i know i cant be..I dont even know if i will be able to go to the funeral..because my dad cant afford to take off work to drive me there. I just need to know what to do..and how to deal with this.

Re: losing my mom

Hi, Danielle I am so sorry that you are losing your mom and not be able to be with her. It is so obvious how much you love your mom and want to be with her. Can you talk to by phone even if a family member is with her and they put the phone up to her ear they say the last thing that goes is one's hearing. Being able to tell her the things that you need to say may be good for you to do if you can do that. Or perhaps telling somebody who is with her what you would like to say would work out.

In any case....your mom must know how much you love her and understands how difficult it is for you to be with her.

There is one thing for sure....even though you may lose your mom physically to death she will continue to live on in your heart and your memory. That can never be taken away or is your gift to keep.

One thing that has comforted me when I have lost a loved one is to remember that each of us are given a body to take care of our is on borrowed time and is called back to our Maker when the time is right. Our body is the empty shell left behind but our soul goes on to live in the next life which is where we are destined to be and will all meet up again.

So you will see your mom again, at least that is what we learn in our faith.

I hope that you can feel your mom's love and know that she will always be with you so long as you remember her and carry her in your heart.

May God bless you and comfort you during this time.

(((HUGS))) ~ Goody
