My 87 Year Old MoM Passed Over July.25,07

Just some feedback for others to cope with the
passing of a loved one. For the past few years
my MoM was not doing to well after dealing with
diabetes for many years. A week before her passing,
she had broken her hip. Was rushed to the hospital,
but never received surgery due to complications

The hospital thought it would be best to put my MoM
into a local hospice, but my DaD refused with alot of
excuses. At the time I didn't realize what my DaD was
thinking. In my DaD's mind, if my MoM was in the hospital,
she would get better service and get well soon. I guess
he didn't want to accept that she was literally dying
and he wasn't ready to let her go after a loving, devoted
68 years of marriage. Just before my MoM passed, the
hospital put her in a Hospice so it would be on record that
she passed in a Hospice and not in the hospital. Doesn't
always look good for hospitals when a patient passes in
their hospital. Guess it has something to do with creditability.

DaD was doing fine up until the final day of the church services
and buriel where he needed some physical support to keep
him from falling and hurting himself. I just spoke with DaD
today to cheer him up and keep in touch with him that he
needs to be strong and move forward. It's sometimes easier
said then done to make adjustments when dealing with a loss
like this.

Personally I feel it was a BLESSING that my MoM passed. Sad
that it happened the way it did by breaking her hip. She's
now at peace and doesn't have to deal with pain and all the
other medical issues that she had to deal with over the years
that included open heart surgery, having her gallbladder removed,
losing her eyesight, and all the meds that she had to take.

GOD BLESS YOU MOM. You always continued to have a good
attitude, sense of humor when you were with us. I WLL ALWAYS
