I’m really sorry I haven’t really participated in anything as of yet. I’m still new at this so I have no clue what I am doing. I’ve been going through some struggles with the illness and recent passing of my Mother, who passed last Tuesday after having surgery to remove part of her left lung. It was really hard to see her in such pain and unable to really communicate with us. She passed just a few hours after my flight home. I had just crawled into bed. I can’t help but think that she waited to make sure I was safe and sound just as she always had done.

I’m hoping to have more of a connection here and perhaps get some advice on how to deal with this terrible loss.

    • Dear Emily, I am sorry of your loss.  It is hard to loss someone dear.  Grief takes time.  So be patience with yourself.  Write to her, Talk to her, Cry if need to.  Your 1st Mother’s Day (which is upcoming) will be very hard.  Join a support group, be with friends and fcamily members that understand grief.  

      My prayers are with you.  heart

    • Hello and welcom Emily, I too am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I know 1st hand about losing a mother mine passed away in 1999 of brast cancer which passed to her lungs. I want you to know that it is ok to grieve for her and take as much time as you need, no one can dictate how long one should grieve over a lost loved one I still grieve for my mom as well as a friend a lost some years ago they were very dear to me, but as Chinadoll has said find a support group and never close your self out from loved ones and friend. You need to be around people to help keep you sane and also to be there with you in your time of suffering. I do know that as time passes so will your hardest time of grieving but you will never stop grieving over a loved one it just gets a little lighter as time passes by, and its ok. I pray that the Lord strengthens you as you seek comfort at this time, we too here at fab40 are with you and hope to see you more, God bless and just know that we‘re your friends here too!happyheart
