Well... Hospice ha been called in.. Momita will be coming home from hospital today, to die peacefully at home... OH MY WORD!! did i just say them words? they get stuck in my throat everytime.. the sting of tears overflow from my eyes... NOOOO! i am not ready by any means...

I have never really grieved the loss of my dad 16 years ago, or my step dad last month, and now momita? good grief! im a damn just WAITING to burst...  

I will be going to the hospital in about 30 minutes, listening to the discharge orders, and following the ambulance back to momitas.. hospice is gettig her a hospital bed, and a few other things she will need at home..

Im not sure when, or how often i will e ableto get on for awhile, bit will et on as often a i can..please keep us in your thoughts and prayers...

Love to yo all...
Linniheart

    • I know what you are going through since my Dad died at home last year following a battle with cancer. You are giving her the greatest gift. Do something special that she would like, such as play her favorite music.  

      You have been dealt a lot in a short amount of time, but I know that you are strong enough. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!

    • Linni- I feel the pain from your words.  I wish I could reach out and hold your hand.  Have faith and know that Momita will be in Heaven- enjoying more peace and joy than is imaginable.
      I lost my Mom at 24.  What happened afterward is one of my strongest testimonies to the power of God.  If you read footprints in the sand- I can only say in the 90 days after such a devasting loss- God carried me.  I had a peace like I haven’t known before or since.  My faith was strong- this experience made it unshakeable.

      Know that my prayers are with you.

    • Linni my heart swells with an abundance of love for you at this time.  The only words of comfort that I can give you is use this time to say all those things on your mind...God is giving you a chance to say your goodbye’s.  I lost my fiance 9 years ago next month to a drunk driver.  I didn’t get to say goodbye and say those things that I had meant to the next time I saw him.  I will hold you up in my prayers.  Remember all those wonderful times with her.  Hold them dear.  She will always be with you.  Aloha.  A hui ho.  Malama pono.

    • Linni, I know your momita will appreciate being at home. My dad had a room in the house set up with a hospital bed and we took turns sitting with him, visiting, reading the bible for him, spending really precious moments that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I know that God will be there with you and with her every single moment of this transition from here to heaven. I’m just so very sorry you are going through this right now; I know it’s been a very difficult time for quite awhile.

      Huge hugs and prayers for you my friend.

    • Thank you all so very much! your love friendship and prayers mean so very much to me...

      Momita is resting better at home, and the bed hospice got for her is great! i feel at odds with y siblings because my sister ( baby of family ) STILLto this day loves to cause troube between my brother and i..so she feels what better way then to use this sitution!  

      My brother and his family live in WV, and he is trying to get himself transfered up here..so im trying to live my life as a mom and daughtr, and he just rips into me yesterday..

      mom was being discharged at 10am, and you know, i have kids to get of to school, get ready for an appointment, then go to hospital..

      Well, he calls me as im driving up to the hospital, bitching because im not up there and a nurse was getting mom dressed, and i said ” im sorry, i have children to get ready and off to school ” and he interupts and says ” they are in school before 8a,” and  said ” and i had an appointment that i couldnt miss, and im on my way now... HOW DARE YOU!” and i hung up the phone.

      Gosh, there is just SO MUCH petty and useless childish things that i just shake my head! i will keep you all posted..

      Love you all

    • Linni I won’t tell you how to have a relationship with your siblings but I will suggest how you handle your reactions to them.

      You have obligations outside of your Mom and you do need to manage those along with your Mom as stress free as possible. So I would suggest that you just smile (even if they can’t see it) and graciously say Thank You and have a wonderful day!
      Don’t engage and certainly do not listen to them bitch at you. You are only 1 person with a lot on your plate.

      Much Love and Prayers to YOU!
