She's been battling cancer for almost three years. The palliative chemotherapy has stopped working. She went into the hospital on Friday with dehydration, and they've found an infection.

They are treating her with antibiotics, so theoretically she'll enter hospice in 10 days, when they stop antibiotics.

I am so sorry you and your family are going through this. I hope you find moments of peace.

Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.

Hugs and peace. I hope you'll let hospice take care of you too. It is for family as well.

Thank you all. She passed away last Sunday, and we buried her this morning.

I agree you want to be gentle with yourself.

Mothering since 1992...its one of the many hats I wear.

I am so sorry. My mom died of cancer on January 19th of this year. She also had an infection in her last days that seemed to take away the last of her fight and strength.

Do be gentle with yourself. Losing a mom is beyond words, it is so very devestating.
