I am so so so sorry to hear about your mom’s condition at this time. I will pray for your mom tonight for her recovery and that if it is her time to go, that she will not be in pain. Please continue to have faith at this time even though the light seems dim …….. Yours truly, JuneMarch 31, 2007 at 1:09 pm #17607eveMember
how hard it is to watch our loved ones go – may you find comfort in knowing that her suffering will be over and that her presence will always be with you

Oh Patti, I am feel so sad for you. I have followed your posts for two years, and you certainly have been a loving and involved caregiver. I know how drained you must feel. Take care and trust in the Lord. May your Mom find comfort and peace.

I have been thinking you and MIL since you mentioned in a post that she has not been well. I do believe you when you say it is hard to for you, she has become a part of your very existance and you have fought so hard to squeeze as much time as possible for her here on earth. I now that she must love you very much for all you have done and in the comming years you will find peace knowing that you did more than most daughters would ever do!
I know that your MIL will find peace and comfort with God, it’ll be harder for you in the weeks to come. We on the forum will be here so if you feel like crying, do so, we understand.
I am going to send you a prayer and light in the coming days.

It has been a long fight for all of you. The time that you spent finding alternate methods to help your Mom to gain extra time above what the doctors recommended was well worth it. You had more time to enjoy each other and to make plans for the next phase in your lives. Your adjustments will not be easy for any of you. Your faith has helped you to get through the past few years and it will continue to do so. You will be separated from your Mom for awhile but you know that it is only temporary and you will all be together again soon.
My prayers and friendship will be with you as you go through the next months. The Peace of Christ will be with you to guide the way.

I am so sorry to hear about your mother in law. I have been so impressed by the close relationship you have with her; you are like her flesh and blood.
The path you took, choosing natural, nontoxic means to help her body deal with the MDS, was a brave and worthwhile decision; and I believe it allowed her a much healthier quality of life than if she had chosen conventional drugs alone.
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us on this forum. I know it has helped me and others. I am thinking about all of you during this difficult time.

Thank you for sharing this difficult time with us, Patty. When a day goes by and we don’t hear from you, I worry, since every day must be so difficult right now. I’m sorry. I hope the sharing of the burden lightened it a bit. We all care about you so much. You are always there for every one of us. I hate this stupid disease. (Is it ok to be angry???? I guess so.)April 1, 2007 at 4:18 am #17617SandyBMember
