mazel tov! wow, amazing news!
this appears to work, has anyone looked at this:
I think my mother was in denial until she actually passed. She never quite believed what was going, I think it was her protective shield. She did not really want to know and we honored her wishes by not telling her how bad it actually was, because it seriously scared her too much. Enjoy each moment, hold hands, eat icecream, smile, and laugh.
Sending prayers and love your way.

I am sending prayers your way. My mother was talking to her mother as well. I think is means, she is there in spirit, and is with him. Ask about roxinal it can be given under the tongue and works faster than morphine, they can also use a patch to help with pain. My mother was in and out. I would ask the doctor about in home hospice, to make sure he is comfortable at all times. Please keep us posted and know we love you and are here for you.

My mother’s left foot got really swollen, it was a backing up of fluids by the portal vein. Best thing we did was keep that foot elevate and rubbed her feet! She loved it and I believe it did make her feel better.
Stay in touch.

My mother refused chemotherapy and at first I was angry and mad at her and viewed it as she had given up “hope.”
In reality she lived her life on her terms and she passed on her own terms. No regrets.
I learned it was not about what I would or would not do, the 19.5 months I had with her from diagnosis to the day she passed were wonderful.
She was not sick with chemo treatments, but lived her life and enjoyed it. She said she was interested in “quantity” but “quality. I have the tremendous respect for her for sticking to her guns, and not being swayed or pressured into something she was not interested in.
I have a wonderful woman who took care of my mother and frankly I believe she kept her alive by being positive. If you need help at home let me know, this woman is willing to move.
Sending love and hugs, from one caregiver to another. Please say in touch.
The book “the better end” and “broken open” are awesome, I found much comfort in them.
I am sorry you had to find us, but welcome you to the support and strength this wonderful foundation has provided for me and my family.
We are here for you, anytime.
Thank you for introducing Neil to me, I feel your emotions, having recently lost my mother at 66. There is “never” a good, or better or best age, they all stink when the time comes.
Neil lives on forever in your heart and your telling stories of him, that bring smiles and laughter to everyone’s face. Please stay in touch, and know that I am here.
Always wonderful to hear a hopeful, positive, happy story. Please continue to take of you, and please stay in touch. Cheers to 50+ more happy, healthy, hopeful years filled with laughter, and tons of smiles!!!!!
Sending love and hugs,
Thank you for reaching out, remain positive, make every moment count. This disease can be a roller coaster, so just strap yourself in for a wild ride and only g-d know the plan. Take good care of you and your family, we are always here. I have met the most wonderful, strong, people on the website and am forever thankful for these friendships!
With love and hugs,
Your story brings tears to my face. I believe my mother followed the same path. She took that very same walk, and followed her heart, and what g-ds path was for. She was brave and it was not a quantity to time, but a quality of time with g-ds will and guidance. G-d held her hand March 17, at 66 years of age, they went for the forever walk, and I feel her strength and love more than ever before. I am not sad, but proud to have known her for the 41 years g-d gave her to me. There is a beautiful poem one of my patient’s gave me: so I thought I would share:
My life is but a weaving
Between my Lord and me,
I cannot choose the colors
He worketh steadily.
Oftimes he weaveth sorrow,
And I in foolish pride
Forget , He see the upper
And I, the underside
Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God enroll the canvas
And explain the reasons why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the Weaver’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver,
In the pattern He has planned
Sending you love, smiles, laughter, hope, faith, and all things positive.
Please stay in touch.
