My mother died too young
I lost my mother, my best friend, on July 3rd, 2012. My mother was hospitalized and diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer with metastasis April 2012. "This is bad, there is nothing we can do" Those are the dreaded words we heard from the doctors. We took my mother home May 4th, my birthday. I cared for her 24/7, until she took her last breath. She was 53 years old. The saddest part is that she continued to have hope and appeared to have no idea that her time was coming so soon. I am 29 and totally lost without her. I am devastated and barely functioning. Everything happened so quick. My brother is only 21 and just as devastated as me. I struggle with the idea that this will get easier with time. My mother was such a huge part of my life and now she's gone.
