I LOST MY MOM ON 10/02/11 TO OVARIAN CANCER!
My dear Mom was only 52 when she feel ill and Kaiser doctors told her she had the flu. A month later she was in the ER.....they said she has stage 4 ovarian cancer.......my life has not been the same since. I'm only 34 and I have NO momma.......no, my Mom lost her battle after 2 surgeries, lots of chemo, lots of pain, fluid in her lungs, cancer moved to her brain, through out her tummy and organs...... OMG! WHY! I will never understand why my hard working, single mom battled this! On October 1, 2011 my brother and I took my Mom for a walk at 7pm. We got Mom in the wheel chair, comfy with blankets, her beanie, socks, and oxygen tank. And off we were down the block.....that was the last thing we did together. Mom fell asleep around 9:30pm. Woke, around 4ish, with extreme pain. Called hospice, increased pain meds, called hospice again, nurse came out.... She said Mom had maybe two week left. Per third call, gave another pain med dose. Mom never woke again. Her breathing changed, she had 3 loud noises that came from her stomach. She was gone by 8:30am...... Mom was getting sicker by the day....I know her body was ready. But, god, do I miss her so much!! My dear Grandma (my Moms Mom.) died on 06/17/11..... She started telling family Mom would not make it to Christmas 2011. Grandma said she did not want to be here when her baby girl died. On the 13th of June we called for an ambulance for my grandma. On Friday, June 17 we took her off life support and my Dear Grandma died. I love you so very much Momma and Grandma! My wish is the two of you are together, and someday I will see you both again.
