It has been a difficult two weeks...
Mom was diagnosed with lung cancer
which had metastasized into her lymphatic system.
She went down hill pretty fast.
My sister and I took care of her in her home
until we could no longer provide the comfort that she required
We had her moved into Hospice where she got excellent care
from a staff that specialize in end of life treatment.
It has been a very emotionally charged time for all of our family.
I had to dig very deep to find strength and energy...
On the wall in mom's room at Hospice
an inspiring reminder...
on my 62nd birthday
Mom slipped away...
She died with dignity
and is now free from pain and suffering.
She leaves a huge hole in our lives and will be missed...
