Update on Mom

Update!!

Mom passed away peacefully, in her sleep at quarter to ten this morning. Jess wrote a lovely post about. I'm very grateful as I'm not up to the task just yet.

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts and prayers. They've help sustain us through this.


Hi, everybody. I first want to say how much all of your comments, thoughts, and prayers mean to us. This is a very hard time for our family, the hardest is seeing our mother in this condition.

We thought she was going home, but she's too frail. They have her in the Hospice room at the hospital. We'll do what we can to keep her comfortable.

Please go read Jess about this. I appreciate her post on this.

Thanks to everyone!

You and Bucky know how much love is on tap for you ... draw from it if you need to.

I am keenly aware of how difficult these times can be. My thoughts are with both of you, and with the rest of the family, including your Mom.

Nothing anybody can say to make this easier. I hope you can take some moments and rest up against the love we're all sending your way. Let it warm you and give you strength and hope and grace in a time when you might feel all three are elusive.

Finally got in here! Oh, honey, I wish so much I could be there and help somehow. Please give chchchchia something to do! Unpack your kitchen? Something. She'll be our proxy helper, it'll make us all feel better.

Bucky said you're taking turns staying with Mom. Please know, and tell the other three, not one of you is ever there alone. Between all the time differences and the insomnia to which I'm sure bloggers are predisposed, there's someone there with you in spirit, in prayer, every moment.

I love you, my sister.

I have the deepest respect for you girl...and now you and I share mutual respect for Michael Jackson.

I, too, stopped by to wish you a peaceful sleep tonight, and to send you a heartful of love. There are difficult days ahead, and I wish I could make them easier for you. Since I can't really -- no one can -- I'll settle for keeping you at the front of my thoughts and wishing you joy through your tears.
