    My mother no longer suffers...

    Dear Friends, Last evening, about 5pm we think, my mom finally broke free from this awful disease and passed peacefully in her sleep.

    Thanks again Rachel. The assigned nurse came today and she was really nice. I'm glad they'll have that support! They even tentatively agreed to maybe having some home healthcare come in to help with bathing and stuff. So, we'll see how it all goes! My mom grew up primarily in Bury St...

    Just when you think things cant get worse!

    Gina, I am praying that you do not have to experience any more pain. I certainly don't know why sometimes when it rains, it pours on us...I can only look at examples like one of my best friends who lost his father on March 8 of this year, and two months to the day later on May 8, his mother...
