Losing Mom

They did take Mom off the respirator but it became apparent all too quickly that she would never be able to breathe on her own. Her heart recovered but her lungs never would. They were already quite weak before the heart attack and the eight days on her back with a ventilator didn't help. She was ready to go. We just weren't ready to let her go.

I found this one of the most helpful sites on grief.

And a friend who recently lost her mother sent me a copy of Motherless Daughters.

Family and friends were wonderful. But now the hard part begins - moving forward without her here with us.
