Hanging with my mom in the hospital

Depressing post ahead.

I'm finally in FL with my mom. My amazing DH is hanging with Sam so I can be with her.

It is not good. I'm so mad at the world right now - I feel like disaster is at every corner. She is pretty aware of her situation, which is grim. I've cleaned my mom's butt - and creamed her sore butt - many times in the last few days and for the first time in my life I understand motherhood. She is so much to me. I have no idea who I will talk to everyday and who will love me like my mom does. I cannot stop crying. I cannot stop thinking some miracle will reverse her brain cancer and make her walk and talk again. What's weird is I dont feel like talking to my best friends. I'm so angry. She is a huge force in my life and I feel guilty for being able to walk and talk and laugh.

 

Sorry - I know, very very depressing post. I'm looking forward to us all coming to the hospital and having dinner with her.

    Your post is close to my heart as I have had 3 friends that lost parents to brain cancer.  It is horrifying.  I am so very sorry.

    I bet what you are doing right now means so much to your mom.  I'm glad you have such a great mom.  It sounds like you learned a lot from her.  Prayers of comfort for you, her, and your family...

    I have no words either.  I'm so sorry for you and your family.

    I also have had three friends lose their moms to brain cancer this year.  Sad coincidence.

    My dad died from brain and lung cancer when I was 13.  It makes me sad to have lost him at such a young age, but I almost appreciate that I was unaware at the time of the reality of what was happening to him. My heart goes out to you.

    I'm so very sorry. I felt the same feeling when I was losing my mom, almost 6 years ago). I was seven months pregnant with my first and climbed up in the hospital bed with her many days. I just kept saying over and over that she still has too much to teach me. 

    Tell her everything you think you want to say. Hug her as much as possible. 

    I wish you all peace and strength.
