My mom is letting go. Her nurse thinks maybe two days to two weeks. I'm grateful she is here with me because she keeps telling me whenever she wakes up how comfortable she is and how happy she is to be with me. That makes it all worth it.

We think she is going so quickly because she knows she's safe and cared for and she doesn't have to stick around and be strong anymore.

Is profound sadness and relief at the same time a thing? Sadness that it's happening, that it's happening this soon; relief that she won't suffer long and that this bad time will be over.

You're doing so well by her. I hope that's a comfort to you, and that if it's not right now, it will be. <3333

Wow, Viv. What a gift, how empowering for your mom to be able to decide how to lead her life and how wonderful for her to feel so safe and so loved. I'm sending all good thoughts and energy your way. If there's any way at all I can help, just say the word and know you both are loved.

Oh, Viv. I'm so glad that you two have each other, that you can care for her, that she knows she's safe and loved and cared for and that her daughter is a strong woman who will grieve but will be okay in the end. And I'm so, so sorry.

All my love and good thoughts to both of you.

This is so tough but it's so amazing to see what you've been able to do for your mom. Like Sweeney said, I hope it is or will be a comfort to you because you've been absolutely incredible in fighting through so much stress and anxiety and working so hard to make sure your mom is safe and comfortable and loved. <3<3<3
