longest and shortest 6 weeks of my life
(New York, NY)
I lost my mother 6 weeks ago to brain cancer.before that she was in hospice care for a little over 2 months. To watch my once feisty, strong, vibrant mother slowly succumb to this awful disease was a difficult thing. she lost her ability to walk, then speak, and finally to move much at all. Believing that time will heal the pain I feel right now it's a difficult thing for me to do. I just hope we did the right thing by her while we took Care of her. I hope the way she passed was at least some comfort in her final moments. Surrounded by my father myself and my brother, as well as her sisters and sisters in law. We even had the Beatles playing on the radio. I can never imagine a day where I will not miss her think of her, or still speak to her. I can only hope to live my life the way she would want me to and experience things That she was never able. I love you mom. I thank you mom. I will miss you all the days of my life.
